La Marina Village & El Pinet
La Marina is a coastal village between Santa Pola and Guardamar del Segura, and is still a traditional Spanish village with a long high street with a selection of shops, bars and cafes.
There are two beaches here, La Marina beach that is a large and beautiful beach of thin and golden sand, it is considered semi urban as part of it has households behind it, but mostly it bordered by a large pinewood and sand dunes. It boasts blue flag status and you are able to rent sunbeds and parasols during the summer.
El Pinet beach is a few metres north of La Marina and here you have a more traditional aspect with small terraced villas on the beach, and a couple of restaurants.
Behind El Pinet beach is the small urbanization of El Pinet, which is reached by a boarded walk and less then 500 metres away. This area all borders the nature reserve of Las Salinas (the salt marshes) of Santa Pola.
