For more information or to register, you can reach out via email at or call (+34) 646174549.

Fully Charged

The joint efforts of the Environment and Infrastructure Departments, led by councillors, Noelia Grao and Víctor Valverde, have successfully restored functionality to the municipality’s charging points, resolving issues that persisted since mid-2022.

Out of the 18 originally installed charging points, a staggering majority had been non-operational for an extended period due to technical and certification issues, causing considerable inconvenience for electric vehicle users.

These charging stations, strategically placed in various locations such as the city centre, coastal areas, and districts, were vital for the community.

As of now, 16 points are fully operational, addressing the concerns raised by the community.

The remaining two points are also under attention. One was rendered unusable due to a traffic accident, and the other is scheduled for repair by the technical service in the coming weeks.

Trekking for fun

Guardamar del Segura has launched a program for older people featuring hiking and trekking routes around the area.

The initiative aims to promote exercise among the elderly while allowing them to explore and appreciate landscapes and natural areas of special interest.

The walks are scheduled to take place every Tuesday and Thursday until June 16, from 8:30.AM to 10:00.AM.

As there are limited spots available, interested individuals are encouraged to register quickly.

For more information or to register, you can contact (+34) 633145775 or visit the Department of Social Welfare and Equality on the first floor of Guardamar del Segura’s Town Hall.

Lace up your walking shoes and join in the fun of exploring the surroundings of Guardamar.
