Nestled in a pretty bay on the south-east coast of Spain, the small resort town of Moraira is an oasis of traditional charm on the busy Costa Blanca, a favoured holiday spot, and retirement haven. Moraira has grown from a small fishing village into an attractive resort surrounded by luxury villas without losing its Spanish character, which is entrenched in its impressive marina, variety of shops, colourful weekly markets, atmospheric old town, and its waterfront restaurants and bars.
For those who enjoy a taste of the high life, it is also within easy reach by car or bus of the busier Costa Blanca resorts of Calpe and bustling Benidorm. The countryside around the holiday destination of Moraira offers some lovely scenery dotted with unspoilt villages to explore.
The relaxed traditional ambience of Moraira is accompanied by two main beaches with European Blue Flag status, separated by a medieval fortress. There are also plenty of sport and leisure facilities on offer. When it comes to holiday weather in Moraira, it is one of the best Spanish beach resorts claiming an average 325 days of sunshine a year, and temperatures that stay pleasantly warm. Fresh sea breezes ensure that it is never sweltering in summer, and the surrounding mountains protect the town from chilly winter winds.
Moraira is approximately a 90 minute transfer from the airport
