Revtangen and the area by Orrevatn lake are known for their rich and varied bird life. Just within Revtangen, by Rv507, Stavanger Museum has a tagging station where between 1000 and 5000 migratory birds are tagged each year. This involves close to 150 different species, sometimes more.
If you walk from the beach up to the edge, you have a fantastic view in all directions. Looking north you can see Hodne and Borestranda beaches.
