You can get there simply by turning to Kuty - Holic, or by following the red bicycle trail. The trail goes along the Morava river dam. It is located on the 85th kilometer of the Morava’s creek. From there you have to walk for couple of meters further.
Two gravel-pits, two worlds
Men and birds live there together in symbiosis within relatively small area. They live there despite there goes gravel mining operation. The two lakes were created as a result of mining in the Morava river that goes even in the present. The bigger gravel pit to the north is popular among fishermen and people seeking leisure here. At the smaller lake, to the south, more than 80 kinds of water birds seek refuge there. This is the reason why fishing there is strictly restricted. The southern lake has thirteen small islands on it where are suitable conditions for birds to build nests. Today, the Adamovska Lakes are among the most important ornithological localities not only in the Zahorie region but also in Slovakia. There is the most important nesting place of wild goose. Also, the largest black-headed gull colony in the Zagorie region. The whole region is an important stop for migrating birds.

In 2009, Gbely built 8 meters high observation tower with the help of eurofunds. Locals call it “AVH”, or "Adamovská
ptaci hledzirna ". You can find it at the beginning of the road spilting both lakes. Before you have to, however, climb 26 steps. Be sure to read an information table. Like the benches and a table, it is located down below the observation post. Up above, there is a nice round view of the landscape. You will enjoy it in any season. However, the best view is in the time hen wild gooses migrate. That means that sometime from February to July, as we had read on the infoboard.

After several weeks, more or less spent at home watching television because I during a crazy ride on motor bikes fractured ribs, I could no longer wait for the next trip. On long trips my body still did not dare, so we decided that we go somewhere to water.
