The local name Pujol means mound or hill and undoubtedly refers to the regions tall dunes. If we look towards the northern section of the channel near the sea, we can see the Muntanyar del Pujol, which is one of the highest dunes in Devesa. This 9.5 m dune was saved from certain devastation when the Devesa Urbanization Project was implemented in 1965. These days, it still stands as an example of a first-line dune ecosystem in Devesa, and is classified as a Reserve for its significant geomorphological and botanical interest.
Also from this spot, if we look to the south, we can see the Estany del Pujol. This artificial lake was excavated as part of the 1965 Urbanization Project of the Devesa to create a recreational marina connected to the ocean through the Gola del Pujol. The space evolved naturally when construction stopped, and it currently houses species of flora and fauna that are typical of the Mediterranean coastal saltwater lagoons and are of great value and interest. Many species of migratory birds use the lake to rest and feed.
