Lagoon of Kotichi
Brackish, coastby shallow (30-40cm) lagoon, which is surrounded by reeds at the side of land, while at the seaside is surrounded by an oblong sandy isle, in the center of which there is an orifice of communication with the sea. Kotihi covers an expanse of nearly 800 hectares and it is the largest lagoon of Peloponnese. It is characterized by big variety of flora while it presents a big ecological interest, because it is the southwest lagoon in the western corridor of migration, of many birds. Every winter 5 to 10 thousand wild ducks of many species gather to pass the winter. The winter ornithological picture is completed with hundreds of other aquatic birds plus many beautiful swans. During the spring and the autumn migration Kotihi turns into a small paradise. Lots of aquatic birds find the suitable conditions to rest and to find food in the shallow water.
