The ebb of Arcos reservoir produces a backwater which in turn gives rise to an area of marsh which periodically floods due to an increase in the level of the water in the reservoir, thus creating an ideal habitat for the osprey and mallard.

Arcos Reservoir Beauty Spot, which covers 120 hectares, is a charming area on the white village route, just a few kilometres from the historic town of Arcos de la Frontera.
