Moraira is one of the many charming coastal towns in the Costa Blanca region. The amazing coastal climate with beautiful views is what makes it stand out from the rest.
Moraira is a small inconspicuous coastal town surrounded by a beautiful mountain range at the northeastern end of the Costa Blanca. The resort is very conveniently situated, about 90 km from the airports of Alicante and Valencia. The town itself has unobtrusively grown from a small fishing village to an attractive holiday resort, while retaining its considerable charm, which attracts tourists from all over Europe. It is also very popular with native tourists from Madrid and Valencia. Moraira has an impressive marina, offering an excellent variety of local shops, markets, restaurants and bars, and most importantly, it still retains its Spanish character. The area has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful and unspoiled scenery and many small villages to discover.
Due to its mountainous location, Moraira is protected from cold, annoying winds, which contributes to a lazy holiday. The beaches hidden in the rocks along the cliff are ideal for those seeking seclusion, peace and quiet. One of those beaches is the La Cala beach - it is a small, rocky beach with clear waters. It is difficult to reach and therefore the best way to get here is by boat or to walk along the cliff. To reach the Cap Blanc beach you have to go down the hill. You can also go to L'Andragó, there are plenty of viewpoints with breathtaking sunsets along the way. L'Ampolla is the most popular sandy beach among tourists. In addition, Platgetes is also popular due to the promenade connecting the sandy and rocky beach.
