Guardamar´s 11 Km of fine Golden Sand Beaches

Guardamar beaches are classed amongst the most beautiful and unique on the Spanish Mediterranean Coast. We love to boast about our 11 km of fine golden sand beaches bordering the long coastal dune pinewoods. Of these, 2 km are located to the north of the River Segura and 9 km to the south. The Guardamar Sand Dunes Woodlands surface is of 800 hectares (almost 2,000 acres), with a maximum width of 1,400 metres, meaning almost a mile. Vegetation consists basically of eucalyptus and palm trees, other Mediterranean and introduced exotic species.

North of the River Segura you will find Els Tossals Beach, a naturist or nudist beach 1,661 meters long,

South of the River Segura there are 7 different beaches summing up about 9 km, some absolutely natural and others fully urban on the town’s shoreline itself. From north to south their names are: Els Vivers, La Babilònia, Centre, La Roqueta, El Montcaio, El Camp and Les Ortigues. The urban town beaches are known as: Centre and La Roqueta. Our Seafront Promenade borders the lively Centre Beach where you can enjoy fine cuisine.

Along the right bank of the mouth of the River Segura you will find the Fish Exchange (Llotja de Peix) with fish auctions on Monday to Friday mornings and the Nautical Sports’ Marina, located 2 km from Guardamar’s town centre. It is also a major Birdwatchers’ sighting area, a birdwatchers’ haven.

Guardamar offers beaches of high ecological value, with 3 Blue European quality flags in one of the most beautiful environments on the Spanish coast.

Guardamar is at the far south of the Costa Blanca, a 25 minutes drive from Alicante International Airport. It has the warmest sea waters in Spain. The average seawater temperature is 26°C in August, dropping to around 18°C in the mild winter months. It is not unusual to see swimmers in winter, especially those coming from central and northern Europe. You can also sunbathe on our golden sands the year round.
