This coastal wetland area is comprised mainly by two lakes, La Albufera Honda and La Albufera Nueva. Its location is surprising, in a semi-desert environment, surrounded by areas of intensive agriculture in contrast with the natural assets of this protected area.

It is set between the mouth of the Adra River and the Dalías Plains, and is a permanent source of food and life for fauna living in the area. Its saline waters come from filtration of sea water, and especially from rainwater that flows in from the Estanquera and Adelfas Gorges. The presence of water all year round, combined with mild winters, make this wetland area the most important in the province of Almería and a passing place for birds on migratory routes between Europe and Africa.

Reeds and rushes. There are strategically positioned hides on the lakes, and you can see an abundance of water birds, especially anatidae such as the mallard and northern shoveller. These arrive from northern Europe in search of food and a warmer place to spend the winter.

In spring, the dense vegetation provides a safe nesting place for species like the coot and pochard, which arrive from the far-distant semi-desert steppes of Asia, sometimes reaching Andalusia and eastern Spain.

    El río Adra es el más importante de la provincia de Almería debido a su gran caudal. Nace en Sierra Nevada y, pasado el pantano de Benínar, discurre por unos tajos muy estrechos llamados "Las Angosturas" hasta llegar a las Fuentes de Marbella, lugar donde se puede contemplar un gran nacimiento de agua. En el paraje de La Habana se encauza y amuralla a ambos lados hasta desembocar en el mar en el lugar llamado "la boca del río". En los meses de verano, para regar los cultivos, el agua se recogía en "el levantaero", se atajaba o cortaba el río para aprovechar todo su caudal y encauzarlo por las "acequias" que rodean toda la vega de la zona de La Alquería y Adra.

    A lo largo de la vera del río hay cañaveras, tarajes y acelguillas y se pueden observar algunas aves como pollejas y andarríos.

  • La Rambla, que nace en el municipio de Turón y desemboca en la playa de Guainos Bajos, es una de las de mayor extensión de Adra. Ésta, como otras amblas, presenta unas características ecológicas particulares, marcadas principalmente por la inestabilidad e irregularidad en su caudal de agua.

    Este carácter estacional presenta asociada una composición florística particular, dominada por la Adelfa y el Taray, apareciendo en las zonas de mayor suelo y/o humedad también la zarzamora, el álamo blanco, el falso junco y los sauces. Ligada a la gran variedad botánica existente, la fauna es igualmente rica: sapo corredor, lagarto ocelado, búho real, avión roquero, jabalí y cabra Montés.

    Los recursos naturales asociados a la rambla, también han atraído desde antaño al hombre, que la ha utilizado como fuente de riqueza, cultivando sus márgenes, aprovechando sus aguas para usos múltiples y utilizándola, además, como vía de comunicación.

    La Costa de Adra se encuentra situada en las estribaciones de la Baja Alpujarra, a orillas del Mar Mediterráneo. Este marco estratégico le ha conferido, desde siempre, gran importancia histórica. Asimismo, la riqueza y calidad de sus aguas marinas han sido, reiteradamente, focos de atracción para el hombre por motivos diversos: comercio, pesca, turismo, etc.

    En la franja litoral abderitana predomina, a lo largo de toda su extensión, la playa arenosa, si bien existen ciertos puntos donde los montes de la Contraviesa se abaten al mar. En ellos, localizados principalmente en el extremo oeste del municipio, se dan formaciones rocosas como acantilados, islotes y fondos pedregosos costeros.
