ABOUT GUARDAMAR DEL SEGURA
Guardamar del Segura is a town that through the course of its history has been able to take advantage of the natural adversities that have affected it. Situated at the mouth of the Rio Segura, the town has always held a key position as a guardian of the river.
The old town was built on a hill which was skirted by the river Segura. Still preserved are the ruins of a castle and other historic remains are from Hellenic times, when this town was a port.
In 1829 an earthquake completely destroyed the original walled city and the castle that was at its centre, although remains of these can still be seen. This forced the inhabitants to move to Guardamar’s present location closer to the coast, and to design the town so that it could withstand earthquakes.
At the end of the 19th century the town experienced serious problems as a result of the advancing sands. To combat this, rows of pine trees were planted, which now give Guardamar del Segura its striking combination of woodland and beaches, and have halted the advance of the sands.
Today the area “Dunas de Guardamar”, and has been declared an Area of Natural Interest.
There are local buses from and to the bus station which is located on Calle Molivent. The bus runs frequently from the station along the western side of the town to the harbour.
Furthermore, Guardamar is connected as well with the routes to Alicante and Cartagena which are offered by Costa Azul. The route to Orihuela and elche is as well available through Vegabus.
