Guardamar del Segura is renowned for its many kilometres of fine sandy beaches. It has a long high street with many different shops as well as a busy market every Wednesday morning. The marina, which is away from the town, is the start of the Corridor Verde walking and cycling route alongside the river “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.
