THE JEWEL OF THE COSTA BLANCA
Moraira is a true gem on the Costa Blanca. What used to be a small fishermen village has become an elegant little town where you’ll find everything that one could wish for. Fine restaurants, luxurious shops, many cosy terraces, sandy beaches and coves with crystal clear sea water and one of the most elite marinas in the area make our village the perfect setting to live the Spanish joie de vivre to the max. The laid-back atmosphere attracts people from different nationalities to spend a holiday or even settle down here. In summer, it is a bustling place with happy tourists enjoying all that is good. But also, out of the summer season the town remains a cheerful treasure.
Moraira is surrounded by hillsides where pine trees and beautiful villas create a delightful scenery.
From Moraira you can take the winding coast road with phenomenal sea views to Calpe, or drive through the vineyards towards Teulada or Benitachell.
El Portet: According to many the nicest bay on the Costa Blanca. The beach is small but perfect with children because of the shallow water. Admire the hillside where the happy few settle while sipping your aperitif and enjoying the evening sun.
L’Ampolla: The largest beach of Moraira, golden sand, right aside the centre of the village, landmarked by Moraira´s Castle.
Platgetes: A sandy beach combined with a rocky shore. An excellent area for all kind of watersports, like waterski, kayak, parasailing, stand-up-paddle, etcetera.
Cala de l´Andrago and Cap Blanc: both rocky beaches with a lush under water flora and fauna; a genuine paradise for snorkeling and scuba diving.
