  • This is a hidden gem. It's a great walk that leads to a nice viewpoint. A lot of bird sounds as you walk. If you expect to see birds, make sure you have a lot of patience as the birds are within the foliage. Good way to spend some time in nature. A nice, peaceful, enjoyable walk with a lot of bird sounds all around you. Highly recommended.
  • One time watchable. It will take 2-3 hours to finish watching entire santuary. One can see a few migratory birds from watch tower during sunset time. Be aware of snakes. Boat service through small canals is excellent. Overall Recommended
