Lugar de Baixo Lagoon

The Lugar de Baixo Lagoon is located on the South coast of Madeira, in the municipality and parish of Ponta do Sol. This is the only tidal lagoon in the Madeira islands, which gives rise to a very particular richness and biodiversity.

Many species of migratory birds use this lagoon as a breeding ground or stopping point. Thus, this lagoon has become a place of particular ornithological interest, as it allows for the observation of species that are not frequently elsewhere on the island.

Here birds such as moorhens, coots, seagulls, terns, grey wag-tails, ruddy turnstones, common sandpipers, and egrets, among others, can be observed.
