Anzali Lagoon

Also known as: Anzali Mordab, Anzali Bay

The Lagoon

This breathtaking coastal liman, which is also known as Anzali Mordab, Anzali Bay or Anzali Liman, is located near Bandar-e Anzali (Anzali Port), and divides the port into two parts. Anzali Lagoon is famous for its beautiful birds and plants. Unfortunately, the lagoon has reduced in size since the 1930s; however, it is still a sight to see.

 

The Ride of your Life!

The landscape is exquisite and demands a full tour of the place, so sail away. The journey will take you through marshes, open grassland, large areas of phragmites, dense reedbeds and meadows, which are all in plain view as you sit back and relax and enjoy the boat ride. Keep an eye out for the variety of flora and fauna on your way. A visit in April or mid September will treat you to plenty of pleasant plants blooming.

 

A Bird-watcher’s Wonderland

Bird-watchers will not be disappointed; the place inhabits a large number of migratory birds. Just imagine 78 species of birds all in one big wetland: herons, egrets, western marsh harriers, purple swamphens, pygmy cormorant, white-tailed eagle, ducks, geese, swans and coots; the list goes on and on, so what are you waiting for? Grab your binnacles and a life jacket, and enjoy the ride; tell the boatman to go slow so you don’t miss a thing.
