Welcome to Moraira

The Jewel of the Costa Blanca  

Moraira is the jewel in the Costa Blanca's crown and once discovered you will return time after time.

Historically a small fishing village it still has 5 fishing boats that land their catch daily and sell fantastic fresh fish and seafood at the popular fish market every morning, except on a Sunday. As you arrive in Moraira you will drive through orange groves and the vines that the Muscatel grapes are growing ready to make wine. Although the town has grown in recent years, becoming one of the most popular destinations on the Costa Blanca, it has not forgotten its roots and the lack of high rise buildings and overcrowding keeps a local feel that is enjoyed by so many returning visitors renting a holiday Villa year after year.

 






 

The town and beaches are wonderfully clean and pretty with lots of quiet areas to just sit, chill and watch the world go by, it’s easy to park in the town centre, essential if you are on holiday with children.

Moraira is now one of the most exclusive and desirable places to stay on the Costa Blanca. It still has all of the charms of a small picturesque fishing town nestled between mountains and vineyards but at the same time has grown to offer almost everything to everyone that stays here and rents a Villa.

Things to do in Moraira

Moraira has two main beaches made up of clean golden sand and nestled in attractive bays, swimming here is safe and pleasant and the beach is a relatively uncrowded place to be even in the peak of summer and cleaned daily.

The main beach is situated right next to the town centre with convenient pedestrian walkways and a park area meaning that it is not necessary to cross any roads to get to the town or the marina from the beach. Away from the beach, Moraira offers a huge variety of restaurants and bars to cater for every taste and budget.

As the sun goes down and your meal is finished you can always head to one of the many local cafe bars and sit and enjoy a warm summer night, or move on to one of the many bars or one of the town's two nightclubs. With many ice cream parlours and the market night stalls, the evening never has to end.

The entertainment isn’t just limited to the evenings, Polar Park, centrally situated, has is a great funfair for children where there are many small rides, mostly suitable for the young but even adults can have fun on the bumper cars and hover boats. Not a fan of the funfair? No problem, the area has activities to amuse all ages. Every Friday morning the market held opposite the town centre is an excellent opportunity to purchase all manner of fresh produce as well as imitation leather goods, clothing, and jewellery.

A relaxing stroll around the town is rewarding in itself - the streets are a mix of quaint cobbled narrow alleys and modern avenues lined with palm trees and fountains and there are many quiet places to sit, relax and watch the Mediterranean lap gently along the stunning coastline to Calpe.
