Activities and visits
One of the most beautiful and easy walks you can make in Sant Jaume d’Enveja is the river walk that runs parallel to the river for thirty kilometres. You can choose the route to the mouth, that is to the right, or go upstream towards Amposta. Both directions are recommended. Along the way we will see riverside woods, all kinds of Mediterranean vegetation and with luck we will be able to observe flocks of birds. The duration of the excursion depends on each one.
Distance: Once you reach the Lo Passador bridge, which connects Sant Jaume with Deltebre, you can follow the River Walk for 8.7 km to the island of Buda. The first section is asphalted. The last 7 km are along a dirt track. You will find benches, some picnic areas, as well as information panels on the fauna and flora of the area. When you reach Buda Island you will have to go back.
From Deltebre there are several boats that run along the Ebro to the mouth overlooking the Island of Buda and the Migjorn. Duration 1’30 minutes. Another option is to go to Riumar for a 45-minute crossing of the mouth. These boats depart from in front of the Casa Nuri Restaurant, located near the mouth.
