Moraira is shielded by the natural protection of the impressive cape known as "Punta de Moraira". An exceptionally pretty town, and once a small fishing village, situated between Jávea and Calpe.
Moraira is developing into an exclusive and charming town much favoured by both holidaymakers and those wishing to set up residence on the Costa Blanca. With the protection of careful town planning regulations, Moraira has not lost its Mediterranean charm. Protected for centuries by its watchtower and castle, the village atmosphere of this pretty town has made it a favourite with visitors.
The perfect orientation of the town provides a southerly downhill view towards the sea while the surrounding hills shelter the village from northerly winds in the winter to create a natural vortex for cooling summer breezes.
Originally a fishing village, Moraira has grown into one of Spain's finest holiday and residential village resorts. Although there is still a fishing harbour, the village itself has expanded to include a large marina and nautical club. There are daily auctions in the fish market and on Fridays, there is a street market. There are lovely sheltered beaches in and around Moraira and at "El Portet" there is a delightful beach and cove with bars and restaurants alongside.
The town centre, with its small and colourful main street, still retains much of its original character and atmosphere, among which you may wander through its narrow streets where small boutiques and pavement cafés vie for your attention. Towards the marina, there are numerous waterfront cafés and restaurants providing the ideal location to relax and soak in the sun.
