A mosaic of ecosystems give life to Doñana national park, the most important natural park in Spain, in the province of Huelva, around the estuary of the Guadalquivir river, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site.
La biodiversity present in this national park derives from the meeting of 3 different ecosystems: lagoons, marshes, fixed and mobile sand dunes, woods and Mediterranean scrub create a dwells in unison where there are several endangered species including the Spanish imperial eagle, the marbled duck and the Parisian lynx. The marismas, the dry marshes in summer, are an important stop on the migratory route to and from Africa.
The entrance to the Donana park is strictly controlled: to admire its beauty it is necessary to book even 2 weeks in advance guided tour. Tours start from the Centro de Visitantes El Acebuche, where you can visit an interactive exhibition, from El Rocio or from Sanlucar de Barrameda.

Matalascanas and Mazagon are two small towns located along the sandy beaches of the national park. Between these two towns there is Cuesta Maneli Beach, a well-known tourist resort. In these two towns there are many hotels but also several campsites.
