Paya Bay Resort: EXCITING BIRDWATCHING

EXCITING BIRDWATCHING

As you stroll along the nature paths at Paya Bay, first you will hear their beautiful and varied songs, then you will see them. You may turn a corner and spot a unique species perched on a branch or another intently fishing in the wetlands. With its rugged terrain, a variety of habitat types, and protected tree groves, the Paya Bay peninsula is home or feeding grounds for up to 50 species of birds. The best time of the day for birding is in the early morning and at dusk, but many species are active throughout the day. Our growing network of nature trails and paths makes for very pleasant birdwatching walks.
