A small, upmarket Spanish coastal town, which is part of Teulada, approximately 100 kms south of Valencia and just 80km north of Alicante. Moraira is an affluent tourist resort, with 8 km of beautiful varied coastline of various beaches and coves, backed by a stunning green valley of mountains and protected pines.
Moraira has a unique charm, historically a small fishing village, today the buildings are still low rise. Its population is just over 10,000, but increases to well over 35,000 in the summer period. Many expatriates reside in this area, especially British, German and Dutch.
The climate is extremely stable with an average of 300 days of sunshine yearly, with hot summers and typically mild winters.
The fish market is still one of the most visited in the region, whilst the port currently has at least 5 boats in operation. It has a local market on a Friday, which sells local produce and locally made goods.
Moraira’s marina is very nice and stylish. This part of town has a wide selection of classy restaurants and an amazing choice of shops.
On the edge of the Moraira coastline, there is a hidden gem, a beach area called ‘El Portet’. A lovely sandy sheltered bay, the water is warm, clean and clear; ideal for swimming and paddle boarding. The lovely narrow sandy beach is ideal for children, and is backed by a small handful of beach bars serving food and drink. El Portet looks out on spectacular views of Calpe.
