Guardamar del Segura is on the coast of Alicante province. Its 11 kilometres of fine sand beaches, ideal for water sports, and the broad range of accommodation on offer, make this an important tourist town. The Segura River flows through the town, and there are various archaeological sites such as the Phoenician city of La Fonteta and the Las Dunas Caliphal hermitage/fort, among others.
The Municipal Archaeological-Ethnological Museum and the Engineer Mira House-Museum are two more interesting cultural venues. Guardamar also has various ecologically interesting nature areas. We should make special mention of the Lagunas de La Mata Nature Reserve, which has a network of trails ideal for walking and biking.
