Divari lagoon

The salt lake of Divari is located in the north part of the Bay of Navarino in Pylos, between Yialova and the island of Sfaktiria. Since 1987 it has been a shelter for aquatic birds where hunting is forbidden. In the area of the salt lake have been recorded species of aquatic birds like: Ducks, falarides, Kormorani, herons, whitetsikniades, silverytsikniades, swans, wild swans, kalamokirkos as well as rare species of cranes and finikoptera (=palm feathers). It constitutes an excellent area for research on ornithology and the animal kingdom as well as on aquatic life and for observation of wild life by visitors who have relevant interests.
