There are several walks around the Pego marshes, which can take one or two hours and offer far-reaching views to the Segaria hills. One route follows a path alongside the River Bullent to the Font Salada (or Ullal del Burro), which is a saltwater spring said to have medicinal properties and is great for people with skin problems to bathe in.

In the summer months you can enjoy a boat ride across the marshes. However, the pathways make for fairly gentle walking or cycling too.

All around you will see the rice fields which produce the special Bomba rice, which the locals would argue is the best rice there is! The fields extend over 1,250 hectares The rice is still cultivated using ancient crafts which guarantee less disruption to nature as well as making sure that only the best grains are selected

The excellent quality of the water provides home to a rich and varied fauna, which include the whiskered tern, the samaruc, the marbled teal and the European pond turtle .

You can walk around the marshland or join one of the guided walks from the Pego tourist information centre in the town.
