Calling all beach and nature lovers: this is a destination made for you. Guardamar del Segura is a seaside town on the Costa Blanca that enjoys sunshine all year round. With beaches and stunning scenery, this stretch of the coastline will have you coming back time after time. 

What to see in Guardamar del Segura

Guardamar del Segura is named after the river Segura, which reaches the end of its journey to the Mediterranean in the municipality. With 11km of beaches and an extensive pine forest, it's not hard to see why so many people from different countries have set up home in the area. 

The town breathes the Mediterranean, epitomising the very best of the seaside lifestyle. You won’t be able to resist the beckoning call of the white sand and turquoise waters, inviting you to take a refreshing dip. The coast is also lined with the largest stretch of dunes on the Mediterranean. 

But Guardamar del Segura is not all about the beach. It also has a rich cultural and archaeological heritage resulting from the various civilisations that have lived here in the past. Rábita Califal, for instance, is an Islamic monastery that is almost entirely preserved. The Site of Cultural Interest comprises 23 cells for prayer. La Fonteta is another Site of Cultural Interest. This former Phoenician port is formed of a defensive wall, rows of houses and a street. But that’s not all: Guardamar del Segura is home to plenty of other archaeological sites that are well worth a visit. 

The landscapes in Guardamar del Segura are also absolutely stunning. Pinada de Guardamar is a pine forest that extends for over 800 hectares close to the shore of the Mediterranean. Beyond the pine trees, the woodland is also populated with palm, cypress and eucalyptus trees. 

In terms of gastronomy, Guardamar del Segura is defined by two local products, namely ñora, a type of pepper that is used to flavour rice dishes, and langoustine with a purple, red and yellow tail.  

Guardamar del Segura is a destination where the sun shines all year round. Ancient sites meet turquoise seas and dense woodland: nothing short of an idyll on the Alicante coast.

Throughout history, the town of Guardamar del Segura has been a critical location. Now settled in an area close to the coast, their houses have anti-seismic architectural features after the earthquake that, in 1829, devastated the old population centre located inside the enclosure of the walled city and around the castle.
