Today, with its shallow fjords, ruled by the tides and protected by a tangle of rhizomes that seem to want to prevent any human passage, this large marine lagoon, a comfortable bed of aquatic plants (of the genus Posidonia) and corals, is a labyrinth of waterways where the Indian Ocean is wedged forming several small islets. Mida Creek is home for many fish species and a feeding site for sea turtles.
Moreover it has been designated by UNESCO as Bird International Zone, sixty-five species of birds live there, some are settled other are nomads, storks, herons and you can find pink flamingos.
There are several ways to visit Mida Creek.

Alternatively you can visit the lagoon on foot, walking along the bridge, which cross a part of the lagoon and which is not by chance called the Indiana Jones bridge.
