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.
