Visiting Donana was a wonderful break from visiting the (amazing) alcazars and cathedrals of Andalucia. While you can take self-guided walking tours for some areas of the park, most of it is accessible only by way of tours and the beach/dunes area is only available...More

I visited the Acebuche centre with a friend and we walked there for between 2 and 3 hours. We managed to see some deers passing by, which was nice! And of course also a lot of birds, including storks. The place is very quiet and...More
