Situated on the prettiest part of the Costa Blanca Moraira is without doubt a beautiful resort that has blossomed from the little fishing village that served the nearby town of Teulada many years ago. It has become an unspoilt mix of seafront cafes and tapas bars, wonderful restaurants catering for all tastes, shops and boutiques, all of which on a summers evening come alive with holiday makers and the large expat community that have made this wonderful place their home.
A town of around 12,000 people, with generations of the old spanish families living alongside many affluent English, German, Dutch and now nationalities coming from much further afield. Because it is a highly desirable area for family holidays the summer population swells to around 35,000.
Moraira's historic roots as a fishing village can still be seen as daily the fishing boats return to harbour with their catch to be auctioned at 1000hrs each morning.
Moraira now sports a wonderful marina and the 'Club Nautico' has 600 embarkation points.
This is just part of how Moraira is now built around tourism. Strict planning laws prohibit over development and high rise buildings and this has made it a very sought after and desirable location.
Moraira has three beaches, one is the main town beach, which gets very busy in the summer season, a smaller beach to the south of the town and a third in the beautiful bay of El Portet, just a gentle stroll to the north of Moraira, past the marina. Go to El Portet for lunch and sit at the waterside café and sample a plate of fresh sardines with a beer, and take in the beautiful properties on the cliff side with their uninterrupted sea views down to the Penon de Ifach at Calpe, I am sure you will want to return. Who knows, it may be there that you would like to have your dream home.
The climate in Moraira boasts 300 sunny days per year and as it is surrounded by mountains that protects it from strong winds and bad weather.
Even in January the water temperature can be 15 degrees and in the summer months will rise to 25 degrees, whilst the outside average temperature in January is around 12degrees centegrade and in August rises to an average of 26 degrees. In 1986 the world health organisation deemed the area an almost perfect climate due to its dry temperate heat.
