The main beach in Moraira (L’Ampolla) is sandy and popular with local residents and tourists.
Having said that there is a hidden gem just round the corner. It’s a little known beach area called El Portet.
Its almost like a Caribbean bay, the water is turquoise, the road to it is winding, the hills are alive with pine trees. the waters are very calm and safe for children. The two main local sandy beaches, gently shelve away into the Mediterranean Sea; both have been awarded the prestigious EEC Blue Flags for cleanliness and are well-tended and very safe for family bathing.
Do also check out Moraira’s other sandy beach Plagetes, and also the tiny rocky coves with clear blue water (L’Andragó, Punta Estrella and La Cala).
The Moraira valley is stunning. It is full of whitewashed villas, it’s very green with lots of pine trees.
is small coastal town situated in the beautiful mountainous north-eastern tip of the Costa Blanca. The resort is conveniently placed between the airports of Alicante and Valencia (about 90km from each) and accessible in approx. 1 hour.
The surrounding region has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful and unspoilt scenery and many small villages to explore.
The town itself has pleasantly grown from a small fishing village to an attractive holiday resort, retaining its considerable charm that attracts visitors from all over Europe. It’s also particularly popular with Spanish holidaymakers from Madrid and Valencia.
Moraira has an impressive marina, an excellent variety of local shops, markets, harbour-side fish restaurants and bars and best of all has still managed to preserve its Spanish character.

Tennis, football, squash, all water sports, boat hire and trips, horse-riding, go-kart racing tracks for both adults and children, a small fairground and three good night-clubs for all ages are all available in Moraira.

As in all of Spain there are numerous fiestas (festivals) held throughout the year in the region; with specific festivals held in April, June, July and November in Moraira itself.
The local people of Moraira are extremely friendly and patient with foreign visitors, not surprising, as aside from agriculture, they depend on tourism for their livelihood.
With a large European resident community existent, there is a pleasant international feel to the area. Most people are pleased to speak English with you and even more pleased if a small attempt to speak Spanish is made.

Lovely well maintained property with fantastic pool and conveniently located.
The property was just like the pictures on the website and didn't dissapoint. The villa has been recently renovated and pretty much everything is new. You can walk into the nearby centre where there is a well stocked local supermarket and an array of eateries for all tastes. We loved the pool, which was secluded and a good size for swimming or playing on inflatables (provided). Lots of seating and loungers around the pool and umbrellas for shade, pool not heated but lovely and warm. The villa was well situated for getting to different beaches, some rocky, others sandy and information provided on which beaches are close by. You do need a car to reach these, but generally plenty of free parking. Moraira has a lovely sandy beach with good shops and restaurants. We went kayaking from Granadella and would really recommend this, visiting sea caves and snorkelling. We also visited Aqualandia water park, which for our 15 year old daughter was a very popular choice. Fantastic holiday in a great location and would definitely recommend this villa. The owner who lives in the upper floor of the villa met us on arrival but went back to the UK whilst we were there. He was available for any questions by phone or email/text and helpfully pointed us at several interesting places to see off the beaten track, including the Bodegas at Xalo a lovely village a few miles inland.
lovely and quiet
The appartement is lovely, well designed, and clean.
We enjoyed conditioned air for the hottest days.
The wifi works really well.
The kitchenware is a bit light but you can find delicious and low cost restaurant around the corner. (try xiringuita in the advocat cala)
The pool is in the shade on middle afternoon... so you can have some drinks without sun burst.
And Tom is a really nice guy.
We remodelled the apartment for this season - new plumbing, electrics and installation of air con units.
Moraira has an extensive choice of cheaper eating out options if you do not want to cook every night.
The pool does pick up shade at around 5 p.m. for about an hour. This is plenty of room for sunbathing around the garden for sun lovers.
We have provided a shaded swing seat and a couple of parasols for those needing to escape the full sun's glare.
Poolside temperature is 34c today and pool temperature a couple of degrees less.
Awesome time of year to take a dip!
