Inland beaches and reservoirs
The Ullíbarri Gamboa and Urrúnaga reservoirs represent an interesting environmental and recreational space. A trail or green route runs around the first of these, allowing you to easily walk or cycle the banks of the reservoir. You can also cross the reservoir from one shore to the other by means of an enjoyable wooden pontoon. Urrúnaga, also known as the “Legutio” or “Santa Engracia” reservoir, is a natural space greatly appreciated by anglers. On its banks you will also find the recreational areas of Sorgimendi and Zabalain.
In 2002 the southern end of the Ullíbarri-Gamboa reservoir became part of the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance, and the Urrunaga and Ullíbarri-Gamboa reservoirs have been declared a Site of Community Importance (SCI), due to their importance for the conservation of flora and fauna species linked to this aquatic environment.
Endangered species or those of limited habitat and small population size present in these reservoirs, including the agile frog, European mink, sand martin, black stork or great bittern, represent another asset to be protected.
