Like much of the south coast of Spain, the first settlers were the Moors. Benidorm was a small fishing village with a modest number of inhabitants.

Alfaz Del Pi ( i )

La Alfas, which in Arabic means "fertile earth", was a gift from the Baron of Polop. This place has a long history with inhabitants and visitors from many cultures. An archaeological find at Albir Beach, has proven that the Romans had occupied this area. In the 13th century Jaime I conquered the town. The town centre was originally set some distance inland to avoid attacks by Barbary Coast pirates. Its population grew significantly in the 17th century and in 1786 the local people planted a large pine tree in the middle of the market place to symbolize a claim for independence from Polop. From this we get the name L'Alfas Del Pi. This was finally gained in 1836 when the town was declared an independent municipality with its own identity and administration. Grapes, olives, oranges, lemons, almonds, figs and locust have been used by the farmers to make their living for hundreds of years. In addition there was income from the ochre mines in Sierra Gelada. In the beginning of the 20th century the vineyards were devastated by grape lice, but today the wines "Vinos de Mendoza" are produced and bottled in this area. Immigration to America and to North Africa was a direct result of damage done by the grape lice, but this tendency changed in the 1960's when the tourist industry, which has been a great success, first started. Today the area around L'Alfas Del Pi, which occupies an area of about 19 km2, has about 19000 inhabitants of which about half are from other countries. In addition there are many tourist that visit here each year. The good climate and beautiful landscape make it a very attractive area. There are many culture arrangements as well, i.e. an annual film festival is held every summer where famous actors come to add splendor. On the promenade some of the famous have had their names engraved in the rock.

Here you will find around 12 km of beach, pine forests, sand dunes & a Mediterranean park with fountains and lakes that provide a habitat to squirrels, swans and fishes. The strategic position of Guardamar, on a hill over the Vega Baja, made it the ideal settlement for the various people who inhabit this part of Spain. Guardamar owes its very existence and livelihood to the River Segura.

Activities around the restored mouth of the river include fishing, camel rides and the Molino de San Antonio. All the local restaurants offer top quality seafood and outstanding rice dishes, the pride of Alicante cuisine.

Both the Guardamar and Pineda beaches are composed of the finest white sand and the smell of the pine trees which surrounds them makes for an unforgettable experience.

The remaining three courses are in the Torrevieja area about 25 minutes drive from La Marina - Villamartin, Campoamor & Las Rablas.

The area has a special charm about it maybe because there is a very relaxed feel about the place and the majority of residents seem to be around all year so it doesn’t have the transient feel that some coastal towns have. The many fiestas and celebrations in the town ensure that the community is close and if you are keen to socialize there is every opportunity – on the other hand if you want to be left to your own little piece of paradise it is easy to find plenty of ‘me’ time.

30 degrees is common for much of the summer and it’s not unheard of for temperatures to reach 40 degrees at the height of the season.

The World Health Organization has recognized this area as a particularly good climate of people with health issues.
