The extraordinary natural landscape of the lagoon is an area for the reproduction and moulting of innumerable migrant birds. An excursion by boat offers an incredible opportunity of seeing beautiful birds such as the red heron and imposing birds of prey such as the kite and the buzzard.
The place is characterized by the historical valleys and “casoni”, the typical fishers’ huts, set deep in the pinewood. The excursion leads you then to the western area of this seaside resort, Bibione Pineda and you find the first Mediterranean Garden, where routes and accurate identification labels help you to spot more easily the specimen of autochthonous flora and local fauna.
The Tagliamento mouth or the lighthouse area encloses several natural settings: the shore, the dunes, the pinewood.
Valgrande uncontaminated and protected area is designed for biological fish breeding, but it is also a naturalistic oasis with its secular holm-oak grove, rare flowers and plants, deer, boars and wild horses, as well as the dunes which can be 11 metre high. Set deep in the luxuriant vegetation there are the remains of a Roman villa with its still visible ancient mosaics.
