The lagoons of the Amvracian Gulf

The Amvracian Gulf includes 24 lagoons, more than in any other place in Greece, with a total area of 70 square kilometers.

Most of them are divided from the sea by an elongated strip of land, usually made up of an uncountable number of shells. The three biggest lagoons of the Amvracian Gulf are Logarou, Tsoukalio and Rodia, with a size of 27, 17 and 14 square kilometers, respectively.

A basic feature of the Amvracian lagoons is their biodiversity, since due to the particularities of their formation, they function as natural farms of fish and crustaceans.
