The Arès salt meadows nature reserve was founded in 1983 to protect the rich flora of the largest salt meadows in Aquitaine. It offers an unprecedented continuity of natural environments between the wooded dune and the sea, including 200 ha of salt meadows.
Due to the interplay of tides, salt meadows are made up of diversified micro habitats. They are home to rare and protected plant and insect species that support very specific ecological conditions: temporary cover by seawater and the presence of salt in the ground. The attentive visitor will be able to observe, in addition to the green lizard, many species of birds (herons, ducks, curlews, blue throats with mirrors...) or even marten and otters for the lucky ones.
