It is easy to guess why the port is so popular. It is well-equipped with numerous amenities, it has a private yard and of course, a fantastic sunny climate with a beautiful village to walk through.
Moraira is and always will be a fishing village, fully focused on life at sea.
It still has a fishing fleet of five fishing vessels owned by families who have passed the tradition down generation after generation.
One you have found your ideal villa and you start living in Moraira, you can start enjoying the amazingly delicious fish that comes from the port.

The Lonja auction in Moraira is one of the few auctions where not only the big restaurants, but also individuals such as yourself can put their hand up for a fish if they’d like. It’s quite an experience in itself to see, and to participate in.
The port is managed by the Moraira Club de Nautica, whose office is located at the entrance of the port.
The active association not only manages the port but also owns the same-name restaurant and also organizes numerous sporting activities. For example the annual Gourmet Race Week, a unique combination of sailing, sports and meal preparation.
