Moraira is a vibrant village benefiting from years of inward investment and local tourism, attracting both young and old, as it surprisingly caters for all spectrum's. This old fishing village has a long and varied historical background, with many fiestas celebrating the language, the local traditions and the picturesque landscapes.
'Thankfully, the local authority has jealously guarded the appearance of Moraira, which has prevented the over-developed characteristics of other Spanish resorts. There are no high rise holiday hotels here. In fact, there are no package holiday hotels here at all.'
'Instead, beautiful private villas and 'pueblo style' developments line the slopes of the valley, which gently decline towards the beach and town. This dictates to a degree, the type of holidaymaker found in Moraira. Those attracted to this resort, tend to be family units, using or renting privately owned villas.'
Moraira has four magnificent beaches along it's 8 kilometre coast:
L'Ampolla - The largest beach, is situated right at the center of the town. With its shallow waters, white sands, children's play area and volleyball court, it is perfect for families.
El Portet - This small beach lies in a bay, to the left of the marina, and is just as popular with families. The two bar/restaurants here are famous for excellent lunches and fabulous sundowners.
Platgetes - Small sandy beach is situated along the Moraira to Calpe road.
l'andrago - Small rocky beach with a beautiful chill out beach bar called Algas.
There are also attractive rocky coves with their crystal clear warm waters. All the beaches along this part of the coast have been awarded an EEC Blue Flag for cleanliness.
Charming bars & restaurants can be found around virtually every corner, there are seven restaurants recommended by Michelin (three with stars) and a huge variety of others to suit all budgets.
The local shops and night market offer a really excellent choice of quality clothes, gifts and keepsakes. There is a fairground, especially suitable for young children, a fabulous Go Karting circuit, for all ages, a tennis club and three nightclubs. Also nearby are three golf courses, horse riding, and water sports centres. The larger resorts of Javea, Denia and Calpe are all within a half hour drive
