The Cardiff Bay Wetland Reserve covers approximately 8 hectares of former salt marsh and the site supports a rich diversity of plants and animals, including invertebrates, fish and other wildlife.

Located on the northern shore of Cardiff Bay, between the St David’s Hotel and river Taff, the reserve is easily accessible via a gravel walkway and boardwalk, and boasts a viewing area that extends out over the water, providing the perfect location for bird watching.
