Guardamar (full name Guardamar del Segura) offers everything you need for a holiday in Spain. As you go through this website you'll get a flavour of what is on offer
Guardamar, on the Costa Blanca, in Spain, is surrounded by two large and beautiful natural salt water lakes which form the "Salinas de Guardamar" and are an official Spanish Nature Reserve. These lakes attract a wide variety of bird life.
Guardamar has learned a few lessons from places like Benidorm, because you'll find no high-rise skyscrapers or package holiday hotels in Guardamar and because Guardamar is orientated towards families and couples, you'll find no night-time trouble with lager louts etc.
Guardamar, known also as Guardamar del Segura and sometimes mis-spelt as Guadamar, Gaurdamar, Guardamer, Guadarmar and Guardarmar, is a developing tourist centre and one of the most important on the Mediterranean coast. However, you'll find it is not nearly as commercialised as the Costa Blanca resorts to the north of Alicante. It still retains that special "Spanish" feel and is in a relaxed environment.
The concentration of salt and the temperature, combine to endow this area with a particularly healthy micro-climate, recommended by doctors for its beneficial properties. Bathing in the salt lagoons is also becoming popular for many medicinal reasons. The climate in Guardamar makes it an ideal location for year round holiday activities, especially if you want to fulfil that yearning for some sunshine during those dreary winter months in the UK.
On average, Guardamar enjoys 320 days of sunshine per year and an average daily temperature of 17°C. Temperatures in July and August are typically 30°C. Many people prefer the months when the weather can be near perfect in April, May, June, September, October and November.
Marina Las Dunes, known officially as Marina de Las Dunas Text and photo for the marina in Guardamar kindly supplied by Alan and Jean from Bridgnorth, Shropshire in England.
"At the end of February 2007, we were enjoying a very pleasant walk around the marina and along the outer sea wall. As well as admiring the boats in the marina, we were able to watch the local fishermen unloading their catch alongside the fish market all within 15 minutes. No crowds, no noise, just perfect peace and quiet, it was great."

The Halifax bank in Guardamar, known as the Banco Halifax Hispania was opened in 2006 and obviously attracts huge numbers of English-speaking people.
