The saltmarshes birds

In the distant past, Giens was actually an island. Nowadays, it is linked to the continent by two parallel stretches of sand. In between these two laces of land, a series of lagoons were, for years, used as salt marshes.

The modern mission of the salt marshes is to improve and manage this exceptionally rich natural heritage as well as to welcome and inform the general public. During your stay, do not hesitate to take part in one of the guided visits organised all year round, allowing you a glimpse at a rich variety of birds and plants and to find out more about the history of salt in Hyères.
