Punta Entinas-Sabinar is a semiarid Mediterranean ecosystem in which the combination of coastal and terrestrial biotypes stands out. It is situated on the western coast of the province of Almería on a coastal strip which extends from the Punta de Entinas to the saltworks, called Viejas.

With average annual temperatures over 18°C and average yearly rainfall between 200 and 250 mm, in its 785 hectares of Nature Reserve, it is possible to differentiate the four main biotypes: sandy beaches, a system of dunes fixed with Mediterranean scrub, a marshy area and the saltworks area (Cerrillos and Viejas saltworks).

On the outside edge of the beaches there are Ammophilia arenaria. The most common bushes of the area are the black junipers (Juniperus phoenicea), the lentiscus (Pistacia lentiscus), Thymelaea hirsuta and the black hawthorn (Rhamnus lycioides).

The diversity of biotypes favours the presence and abundance of vertebrates. As well as the presence of flamingos, the variety and number of the plover family which use this area as a resting place on their migratory route is noticeable, especially the large, common, small and tridactyl curlew sandpipers and  redshanks. Among the seagulls the species of Audouin (Larus audouinii) and Larus minutus stand out.

    La Cañada de las Norias y sus lagunas es uno de los espacios protegidos con mayor biodiverisdad de Andalucía Oriental. A pesar de estar completamente rodeada por invernaderos con cultivos bajo plástico, caminos, escomberas e incluso vertederos ilegales, las aguas y riberas de la principal laguna de Las Norias, acogen a multitud de aves acuáticas, tanto de forma permanente como de paso en sus migraciones. Algunas de ellas son especies en peligro, tanto vulnerables como en vías de extinción. Las bandadas de fochas se mezclan con cormoranes, azulones, charranes, e incluso zampullines.

    En la zona oeste del nucleo urbano y las urbanizaciones de Roquetas de Mar y hasta el paraje de Punta Entinas, se encuentran las antiguas salinas de Roquetas y las charcas que formaban las marismas. Hoy son solo un reducto natural de lo que fuera antaño, que aún mantiene la biodiversidad propia de charcas y marismas.
    Desde Punta Entinas hacia Roquetas se encuentra, a la derecha, la gran Salina de Cerrillos que continúa con la denominada Salina Viejas. Están surcadas por los caminos que se utilizaban para recoger la sal cuando el agua se evaporaba por el efecto del sol y que ahora ofrecen la observación de grupos de flamencos que utilizan la laguna de Hornillos, junto a las salinas de Punta Entinas, en sus movimientos entre las marismas de Huelva, Fuente de Piedra y Cabo de Gata.
