Guardamar del Segura Area Guide
Guardamar del Segura
Guardamar del Segura is renowned for its many kilometres of fine sandy beaches. It has a long high street full of all kinds of shops as well as a busy market every Wednesday morning. There is a helpful tourist office where you can book your seat on the tourist train, a couple of museums, and a large sports centre with indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The marina, which is away from the town, is the start of the Corridor Verde walking and cycling route alongside the Rio Segura. Added to this are two wonderful parks, the Alfonso and the Renia Sofia. The pine trees and sand dunes of the Alfonso Park connect the town to the marina and provide a flat walking and cycling route. The Reina Sofia Park has shady trees, rolling grass hills, man made ponds and many resident squirrels, ducks, terrapins and peacocks! It has an adventure playground area which is floodlit and the nearby children's funfair and night market (both summer only) make for a good evening out.
The inland area of Guardamar is known as the Campo de Guardamar and includes both El Raso and Moncayo urbanisations. El Raso has a commercial centre and a very, very popular and busy market, which is locally known as ‘the Lemon Tree market’ every Sunday morning with over 500 stalls.
