Environmental Walk to Antinioti Lagoon (NATURA 2000)
Walk around the lagoon through footpaths and discover the lake’s biodiversity. The area is full of red reeds, aquatic plants, wildflowers (about 16 species of wild orchids have been identified) and, during the spring, the neighbouring beaches of Almyros and St Spyridon are filled with water lilies. There are many fish in the lake (mullets, eels, sea basses, gilt-head breams, crabs) which is also a migratory bird stopover: almost 180 different species have been identified, among them many duck species, herons, cormorants, swans, hawks etc. The lake’s most interesting and rare animal is the European otter (Lutra lutra).
