Guardamar is a picturesque town with one of the largest beaches in Spain, measuring 11 kilometres. The sun, sand and sea make up the whole Guardamar experience, as it epitomises the typical summer seaside getaway. Amongst its many attractions is a superb beachside with miles of clean golden sand. Restaurants and typical Spanish bars are open for lunch and dinner or even a quick merienda by the shore.
Guardamar exudes a very laidback vibe, a carefree feel that entices travellers to not just see but also immerse themselves in the culture. Leisurely strolls by the beach or an evening walk to the park are just some of the activities worth indulging in. Unwinding in Guardamar is a religious experience because of its tranquility. On Wednesdays though, the laidback town transforms into a mad, whirlwind of activity. It is market day, with buyers and sellers gathering to barter their wares.
A natural pine forest leads to sand dunes, the sea and finally the marina. All activities are done at a leisurely pace, devoid of the hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan living. Of course, like all Spanish towns, Guardamar knows how to party. It comes alive at fiesta time, when the sun comes down. A fantastic street party entices both local residents and tourists to meet and revel the night away.
