Flora and fauna

The area known as the Dehesa de San Miguel, that surrounds El Rompido, was declared a Protected Natural Space in 1989 and is also a Special Protection Area for Birds.

They are home to species such as the osprey, the common whimbrel or the ruddy turnstone. They are also the breeding grounds for numerous migratory species such as the western marsh harrier, the Caspian tern and the little tern. As for reptiles, chameleons are probably the most characteristic sight. In Europe, these intriguing creatures can only be found on the coasts of Andalusia and Murcia in Spain, and on the Portuguese Algarve.

The grasses and plants that grow in the sand dunes of El Rompido include thymus carnosus and poaceae gaudinia hispanica.
