In the south of the municipal district of Elche, on an impressive strip of dunes, one finds the beach known as El Pinet, with a vast pine forest that has a natural extension to the south of the coast of Guardamar del Segura, and to the north, in the Nature Reserve of las Salinas (the salt marshes) of Santa Pola.

Formed of fine, golden sand, it extends over nearly two kilometres. Part of the beach is occupied with villas, built in the 1950s, where we can found restaurants and accommodation on the seashore.

In addition, there is lifeguard vigilance, foot washers, a large parking area and numerous wooden gangways connecting the access to the beach with the road. A regular bus service runs between El Pinet and Elche.
