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, also known as Guardamar del Segura and very often mis-spelt as Gaurdamar, Guadamar, Guadarmar, Guadarmer, Guardamer 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 retain’s that special "Spanish" feel and is in a relaxed environment.
