A good starting point to get to know the Sado Estuary Natural Reserve is the Moinho de Maré da Mourisca, which represents a centuries-old testimony of how Man has adapted natural forces to his own advantage.
This suggestion falls on a car journey, but it is pertinent to remember that there are companies that develop various leisure activities in the estuary.
The community of bottlenose dolphins is one of the ex-libris of these tourist offers, which propose different walks on the river to observe what is one of the few communities of sedentary dolphins in the world.
When retaking the access road to Moinho de Maré, follow until Estrada Nacional 10, towards Pontal de Musgos, from where you have a glimpse of a vast area of the estuary.
The observation of fauna and flora is, moreover, one of the points of greatest interest, with the opportunity to see, depending on the season, long-legs, flamingos, marsh eagles or white storks.
In the Sado Estuary Natural Reserve there are several salt pans, testimony to the importance that the salt extraction industry once had in the area.
This entire area stands out for its ecological richness and variety, so it is well worth going on an adventure and exploring the immense paths and small roads that make it up.
