Easy access from the Vasco da Gama Bridge in Lisbon.
The Alcochete nature reserve and its neighbour Montijo are easily accessible via the Vasco da Gama Bridge.
The first salt works not far from the bridge on the right-hand side when travelling south are private. Among other things, they are used for the resting of the Pink Flemings.
These large waders that are most often associated with African water areas are not so rare in the Tagus estuary. They can be seen from many observation points in the Alcochete reserve.
Several interpretation centres in the nature reserve allow visitors to become familiar with the birdlife. Such as the one at Sitio das hortas, in Alcochete
The reserve is managed by ICNF – The Nature Conservation Institute. (Car) tours are proposed with stops at the main observation points. Walking loops are also available.
