A creation of the Portuguese, this canal was previously the ground of a very rich lands reaping rice. Today, the marsh and wetlands are home to some beautiful species of birds including kingfishers, herons, cormorants and many more. There are guided boat rides available here, for further information. The place has a very relaxing vibe.
