This reserve was created to protect a humid zone with exceptional characteristics situated near the estuary of Guadiana river. It covers an area of 2000 ha. It has a trapezoid shape, whose vertexes are the international bridge, the railway station of Vila Real de Santo António, the crossing between EN125 and EN125-6, in the surroundings of Praia Verde and Castro Marim. This reserve has succeeding fens, salt ponds, pastures and brooks, where cattle graze and birds nest (such as the wading bird, the symbol of the reserve). Numerous species of fish and shellfish are bred here.
