|Gouraya National Park|
|Location||Béjaïa Province, Algeria|
|Visitors||60.000 (in 2005)|
The park is north-east of Béjaïa, close to the city. The park includes the 660 meter (2.165 feet) high mountain of Gouraya, where 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 of portions of northwestern North Africa and disjunctively in Gibraltar.
