Al norte de la provincia de Cádiz, el Paraje Natural Cola del Embalse de Bornos está situado a caballo de los municipios gaditanos de Arcos de la Frontera, Villamartín y Bornos, a los pies de la Sierra de Grazalema. Humedal de gran valor ecológico, embalsa las aguas del histórico río Guadalete. Aguas abajo, a muy poca distancia, se encuentra el también Paraje Natural Cola del Embalse de Arcos.

Aunque es de interés especial para los amantes observadores de las aves, la visita a este lugar no dejará indiferente a ningún visitante. La época invernal y las horas de comienzo y final del día son las ideales para contemplar el espectáculo visual lleno de vida que ofrece este lugar.

Los frondosos tarajales que salpican sus orillas proporcionan un magnífico enclave para la nidificación y refugio de importantes colonias, de entre las que destacan algunas tan singulares como la espátula, la garcilla cangrejera o el martinete con su belleza inquietante. Junto a los tarajes podemos encontrar aros, Polygonum equisetiforme, esparraguera silvestre, un endemismo gaditano (Silene stockenii) y otro de la Pensínula Ibérica (Hymenostemma pseudoanthemis). Más alejadas de la orilla, cobran protagonismo las suaves laderas salpicadas de lentiscos y acebuches.

Otras aves presentes son garceta común, garceta imperial, cigüeñela, avoceta, cormorán grande, garza real, ánade silbón, cerceta común, ánade real, pato cuchara, negrón común, polla de agua, focha común, avefría y correlimos común.

También hay una notable representación de otras especies, como boga y colmilleja, nutria, galápago leproso y sapillo pintojo ibérico.
