The relief is flat in the swamp and waved in the surroundings by the presence of dunes.

The swamps, are tropical humedales of salted water, estuarinos and/or lagunares, that is to say areas where they mix fresh water with salted water, settled down in areas intermareales. They are ambient very productive of whose resources the coastal residents usually benefit. The swamps are considered as the primary most important producers in the planet, contributing, also, to fix the floor where it grows avoiding this way the erosion.

This ecosystem is important for the wide variety of species of birds that in the they inhabit.
