DUNES & PINE FORESTS

Declared a Site of Community Interest (SCI), these are two of the most beautiful natural spots on the Costa Blanca. The dunes are formed from the sands contributed by the sea, forming a several dune cords that covers the entire district coastline, from north to south. They are a very attractive space where you can take a walk by the sea surrounded by nature.

This forest space bordering the Mediterranean coast has 800 hectares (almost 2,000 acres). Originally, it was a set of moving sand dunes that were fixed planting different species such as pine, palm, cypresses and eucalyptus trees.

At the end of the 19th century, the dunes were advancing into the town at a rate of between 2 and 8 meters per year. To fix this, a reforestation project was lead by the forest engineer Francisco Mira Botella. The reforestation, which began in 1900 and ended in the 1930s, has given rise to the current consolidated coastal forest mass, known as ‘la pineda’ or ‘pinewoods’. In it a nursery and several forest buildings – from the early 20th century – are preserved.

More than 600,000 trees were planted over four decades creating a landscape environment of extraordinary ecological, tourist and cultural appeal. A museum in the city centre celebrates the work of Mira.

MIRA HOUSE MUSEUM

Known as ‘The Forest House’, it is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Francisco Mira Botella, the renowned engineer, his work and the history of the Guardamar Reforestation Plan. On show there is a wide photographic collection, furniture and fixtures related to the reforestation of the dunes carried out under his management and supervision.

A major restoration of the museum was carried out in 2019 with local council and European funds. During the work, a part of the original building’s original structure was recovered. It now shows the materials that remained in the house, some of the forest rangers’ objects and a collection of objects from Engineer Mira’s home in the inland village of El Fondó de les Neus/Hondón de las Nieves.

The building, one of the town’s main landmarks, also houses Guardamar Tourist Information Office.
