Contrary to what many might think, the Badajoz province has many activities to do: water sports in Badajoz wetlands, natural pools in the region of the Vera or Jerte, a short trip down Tagus river or a descent by the Alagón river.
Orellana beach, in the heart of Extremadura, is the only fluvial beach in Spain. A unique beach that offers you the chance to swim in the freshwater waves and enjoy a beach bar and a small marina. These are the ideal circumstances to look for hotels in Badajoz
Adventure sports in Alqueva are very well known internationally. Among the activities on offer are sailing, astronomy and stargazing, kayaking and, in short, multi-sport land and water activities.
You can also navigate through international waters along the Tagus, a protected area totaling 50,000 hectares, with 47 species of mammals and 181 species of birds, including some endangered species and others that are rare sightings such as the black vulture.
The Jerte Valley, Cáceres, is an excellent area to practice "canyoning" throughout the area. However, three main areas are normally used: walnut groves, holes and papuas, which are equipped with climbing anchors, diverters, public handrails and guided rappels.
Extremadura is also a paradise for sport fishing. Between lakes and reservoirs within the autonomous community there are also fantastic opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. Reservoirs such as Alange or Orellana in Badajoz province are excellent for black bass, pike and many other sport species.
For children there is also a water park located a short distance from the border with Portugal. "Lusiberia" has slides, wave pools, playground and terraces and leisure activities designed for all ages.
