Doñana National Park

This is a magnificent area that stretches for miles. It’s situated west of Seville, quite close to El Rocio, which is also worth visiting.




We went on a bus tour that started quite early in the morning, fortunately they have a cafeteria so we were able to have breakfast before the tour started at 8.30. The bus was for about 20 people and had huge tyres to cope with the natural domain of sand and woodlands.





The beach is one of the longest in Europe, set between Matalascanas and the Guadalquivir river. The tour lasted for four hours, taking in the beaches, Dunes and Pine woods and marshlands.

As the bus travelled we spotted various animals and birds: fallow deer, stags, wild boar, linx, imperial eagles, kites, buzzards, stork and many more creatures. Absolutely fascinating. What I need is a better camera that zooms in closer.

The bus stopped occasionally for us to take a walk around, including visiting a replica of an ancient village with thatched cottages.







Fishing very much a sport here.



I loved visiting this beautiful area. Absolutely amazing. Can highly recommend a visit. We stayed in the local Parador at Mazagon. This is the view from our room. An easy walk down to the beach.
