Guardamar greatly surprised me. Aside from the dunes where you can spend house looking out at the sea and reflecting on life, there’s a marvelous park full of birds, picnic tables, and walking trails. I love it!!!
When you visit the beach, the last thing you expect to find is a park with wild animals such as squirrels, peacocks, swans and turtles. There are also swings for the kids. As I say, a welcome change from a normal beach.
It is worth climbing to the castle see the wonderful view of the town and surrounding area. You can see the Vega Baja del Segura and Tabarca Island. In 1829 there was an earthquake and as a result, the area shows a few signs of neglect.
From Guardamar, follow the channel of the river Segura on the left bank to its mouth in the Mediterranean and, from there, along a dirt road, you will come to this protected area where you can see birds, coots and herons who have chosen these dunes as their habitat.

Guardamar del Segura is characterized by its dunes and of course, for its beaches. Among the best in the Mediterranean, you'll love the sand and the clear water. And, of course, the bars and sports facilities make it even better.
This beautiful little beach is just 3km long. It is part of the Guardamar dunes and is near the marina. The dunes hide it at first, so it appears almost by surprise. It is one of my favorite places in Alicante - quiet, with almost-white sand and lush vegetation. Both in summer and winter, it is a pleasure to come to this little beach. You can reach it after a lovely walk along the dunes, as it's best to leave the car. It is only a ten minute walk.
In the far north of Guardamar del Segura, almost on the border with the district of La Marina, you can find the Marina Dunes. They are protected from the winds from the sea by sand dunes, and are small, cute and not too extravagant. Of course, it is always lovely to see all these boats together, while walking (if allowed) by the floating docks, and there you may meet a sailor that had come from Ireland, Sweden, or perhaps another far away country. The courage of these people is amazing, something I respect tremendously. It is on an end of town that you can very eaily access and it is very comfortable to stroll there, so it has become over time one of the benchmarks for athletes who come here by bike, "jogging" or simply speedwalking. This means that sport is always the way. Within the harbor there is a snack bar to have some refreshment, if you want to relax while watching the boats ...
The Archaeological Museum of Ethnology and Paleontology (Alicante) has a wide selection of works of the culture of the Bajo Segura. It has graphics and documents, all in chronological order according to the different cultural periods.
Good Friday is the most important day of Holy Week for many. In Guardamar del Segura, the day begins at 8 am with three processions (Our Father Jesus Nazarene, St. John the Evangelist and Our Lady of Sorrows). Throughout the day, there are many exaltations. At 9pm there is a big procession along the main streets that lasts for several hours, with figures of Brotherhoods of the Agony in the Garden, Scourging the Lord, Our Father Jesus Nazarene, Our Father Jesus of Fall, Holy Christ of the Good Death, Our Lady of Sorrows, Holy Sepulchre, St. John the Evangelist and Our Lady of Solitude. They are accompanied by the Guardamar Musical Association and the collaboration of la Benemérita.
This is a neighborhood gym in Guardamar del Segura, where the people are very friendly and very kind. There is an exercise machine room and swimming pool. There are also children's karate classes. A good atmosphere, and a great place to go after work, or to get back in shape.
