Once a quiet fishing village, Moraira has become one of the most exclusive resort towns in all of the Costa Blanca. Sandy beaches meet bustling promenades. Seaside cafes abut bountiful vineyards. Our Moraira holiday rentals offer the perfect refuge to enjoy all this coastal town has to offer.
Cave excavations unearthed objects belonging to prehistoric settlers. The Iberians made this their home soon after and then the Moors invaded in the seventh century, establishing irrigation systems and buildings that we still see today. Fishing was the occupation of choice for much of the residents until tourism took over post-Francisco Franco. Today, Moraira enjoys a reputation as an idyllic vacation spot for visitors with deep pockets. Stay at one of our Moraira holiday rentals to experience for yourself this beautiful town in Spain.
Situated on the Northern Costa Blanca, Moraira boasts more authentic Spanish charm than some of its trendier neighbors. Whitewashed villas look down on cobblestone streets. The Castillo de Moraira, built in 1742, provided protection from Barbary pirates and still features the seal of the Bourbon dynasty. Wear sturdy shoes as you climb to the top of Torre Vigia Cap d'Or, a watchtower that affords magnificent views of the town and its environs.
Most people who head here come for the beautiful beaches and small marina. The main beach, L'Ampolla, is sandy and busy come summer. With pine trees overlooking the bay, Playa del Portet offers turquoise water and L’Andragó, Punta Estrella, and La Cala all have clear water set in rocky coves.
A stay here wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Lonja, the daily fish auction held near the marina. Grab some fresh fish and bring it home to one of our Moraira holiday rentals for a delicious repast.
You'll find Moraria to be the perfect base from which to explore the rest of Costa Blanca and Valencia. Spend the day at the beach in Dénia and then hop on a ferry to Mallorca. Calpe was a fishing village but is now home to a wealth of beautiful sandy coves. Altea is known for its whitewashed architecture and cobblestone streets. Jávea has a large expat population, so finding a meal like you'd get at home is easy as pie.
Soak in the sun and relax in a cozy cafe in Moraira. Our Moraira holiday rentals will take you there.
