This trail takes you through two different environments: the Caldeira lagoon and the surrounding pine forest.
Caldeira is a lagoon which fills up and empties twice a day with the tide, unveiling the muddy wetland. It is an area of great value that provides food and shelter to many species of waterfowl, like the sanderling, bar-tailed godwit, herons and mergansers.
In the pine forest we find the oldest dunes in Troia, covered in maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) and stone pine (Pinus pinea), but also include many varieties of plants.
The trail will take you first along the beach and then through the dunes.
If you are lucky you may even sight flocks of small birds running along the sandy beaches to peck for food as the water retreats.
By the breaking waves, the first colonising plants can be found, e.g. the European searocket (Cakile maritima) and, on the embryonic dune, the Elymus farctus, the Eryngium maritimum and the Otanthus maritimus.
Next come the primary dunes, with tall ridges and only a few years of life, covered in Ammophila arenaria. Further back, the secondary dunes (which are several decades old) are rich in small aromatic shrubs. Inland, the older dunes are covered in larger shrubs, such as the Lygos monosperma.
