Gouraya National Park

The national park of Gouraya is one of the coastal national parks of Algeria. It is located in Béjaïa Province, near the shrine of Sidi Touati.

The park is north-east of Béjaïa, close to the city. The park includes the 660 meter (2.165 feet) high mountain of Gouraya, from which the park got its name, in addition to many beaches and cliffs, which make the park a swimming destination for many Algerians.

It is a UNESCO-recognized biosphere reserve, with a varied flora and fauna, including Barbary macaques and jackals who live in the forests in this park.

The Barbary macaque is a primate with a very restricted range in portions of northwestern North Africa and disjunctively in Gibraltar.
