It is a private fishing area (one can notice the casoni of Valle Nuova and Val Cantone). The vegetation includes mostly reeds and halophytes. In the middle between Valle Nuova and Valle Bertuzzi there is a small holm oak forest, where cormorants and little egrets nest. Among the birds one can admire herons, grebes, mud-dwellers, sea gulls, anatids and rails. Since the water is very salty, pink flamingoes stop here especially during summer. Among fish species, we find grey mullets, eels and sea basses. Visitors can see the lagoon only from the outside, from the Acciaioli road that divides it from the Nazioni Lake.
The lagoon is not accessible inside and can be observed only from the panoramic road Acciaioli .
