A bit smelly and the local goverment is going to open it to the sea to increase the water levels due to a lack of rain. The worst I have seen it.

My husband and I comer here every year. The number of different birds to be seen is amazing, especially so close to the ocean. We always visit in September, the water is so full of fish literally hundreds. It is a really beautiful place with the backdrop of the sand dunes......
