The fact of having an artificial lake in the area of Arcos makes possible the practice of a great number of water sports, such as kayak polo, waterskiing, sailing, rowing etc....
Also, this lake has a fishing area for those who want to practice this sport in complete tranquility.
Regional and National Championships take place there every year as its conditions are excellent. The Natural Spot "Tail of the Dam of Arcos" It was declared to be a Natural Spot in July 1989.
It is an area of about 100 hectares covered with giant reeds, occupying the end or tail of the dam of the river Guadalete in Arcos de la Frontera. Thanks to the proliferation of reeds, many aquatic birds occupy this site, some of them as regular residents and some others as seasonal visitors.
This spot offers two birds observatories and the route of the path of the lake. www.dipucadiz.es/Sendero cola del embalse de arcos. More information: OPEN AIR ACTIVITIES.
