Guardamar del Segura Alicante Spain

Details

Located half an hour north of Alicante Airport, Guardamar del Segura is a pretty family resort with great fcilities and beaches. It has a population of 13,000 and the economy is driven by the tourist industry. However unlike many resorts on the southern coast of Spain, development has been careful and sympathetic.


Guardamar is now thriving but has had to battle through adversity in the past. An earthquake in 1829 completely destroyed the original walled city and the castle that was at its centre, however remains of these can still be seen. This forced the inhabitants to move to Guardamar's present location closer to the coast, and to design the town so that it could withstand earthquakes.


At the end of the 19th century the town experienced serious problems as a result of the advancing sands and so planted rows of pine trees to help stop this, which now gives Guardamar del Segura its uniquely striking combination of woodlands and beach.

Today the area is a 840 hectare Forest Park called the 'Dunas de Guardamar', and has been declared an Area of Natural Interest.




There are so many attractions here that make this the perfect location for a family holiday. There’s a fantastic new marina, plenty of golf courses and the beaches are second to none. There is 11km of Blue Flag beaches, so overcrowding isn’t an issue. There are plenty of bars and 30 or so restaurants catering for all tastes as well as good shopping and a weekly market. For the kids there’s go-karting and two waterparks within a 20 minute drive.

The Reina Sofía Park is a good place to walk and admire the scenery within a magnificent setting of native flora and fauna. The park, with its lakes, waterfalls and trails, has been beautifully designed. Guardamar del Segura has something for everyone.
