An oasis of calm and charm amongst the mass tourism resorts of Spain’s Costa Blanca, the quaint town of Moraira offers quality rather than quantity when it comes to holiday amenities. The medieval old town offers upmarket shopping and a colourful weekly market; the two main beaches have Blue Flag status; several of the tastefulmore

We love Moraira
We have been to Moraira many times now and intend to return again and again. This is a little Gem of a place, the people are so friendly, Bars, Restaurants and night life is great!! We always stay in a private villa (Direct Villa Holidays) They are outstanding and very good value. Can't wait to return and spend some time with the friends we have now made out there :-) You must go!! Michael & Dale xxx
Moraira - Susan Kinghorn. Date of travel: Sep 2010
I have had a house in Moraira for many years and find it my little piece of heaven, it is so clean and the Spanish people there are so polite and generous. The restaurants are really good value for money and again very clean. I am trying to find a downside but I can't. I like it as you are not far from Calpe a typical Spanish town with great beaches and good shopping. El Portet has had a face lift and is another beautiful place with views across the bay to Calpe with its high rise and the Ifach rock. The fish restaurants at the bottom of the Ifach are a must as are many of the Spanish owned bars and bistros
I love Moraira because it has so much to offer. - Jack Grogan. Date of travel: Aug 2010
One of the things I like about Moraira is that it does not have those ugly high-rise blocks prevalent in most tourist destinations and no noisy nightclubs. However you can still enjoy the nightlife with good music and dancing in a number of bars. Like our pub-crawl, the Spanish here like to bar crawl. Have drink and a dance then move on to another and another. There are 2 sandy beaches, Moraira itself and El Portet, which are both blue flag awarded. You know the photos you see of restaurants right by the shoreline, or on a cliff looking across the sea and you know they are going to be expensive because of the location. Well here you can do that and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. There are lots of bars and restaurants dotted along the coast. La Bona Taula, is just 1.5km along the Calpe road from Moraira offers fantastic food and amazing views over the bay. Also try the cocktail bar called Upperclub at the yacht club in Moraira, fantastic views, nice music and great cocktails. There are a variety of restaurants that are good quality and affordable. This area and the surrounding areas are steeped in history so plenty to see there too. Golf Courses, Theme Parks, Water Sports, Cycling, Hiking, Rock Climbing …. The list goes on and on.
My first time Kayaking in Moraira - Nick Garcia. Date of travel: Aug 2010
We had a fabulous holiday in Moraira, Costa Blanca staying at a beautiful villa called Bonita. The views were breathtaking and the villa was very comfortable with everything you could want. A colleague at work recommended the company, Villaspain and we were not disappointed from start to finish. We all love lounging by the pool or lounging on a beach, which are extremely clean by the way, or lounging by a bar but this time we thought we must try to at least once or twice to do something a bit more energetic during our holiday. For the first activity we decided to go for kayaking and as most of us had not tried it before we opted for the tours & excursions package with Coast Mountain Kayak. It was €35 for 2.5-3 hours which we thought was very good. We met at their shop at 9am and they fitted us all with the correct equipment and we headed out to the departure point. We took the Moraira Tour so we left from El Portet, the old fishing village that lies close by to the Cabo D´Oro. We kayaked from there out and around the cliffs towards Cala Llebeig, a small fishermens bay that you apparently can't get to by road which still retained the cave houses and old fisherman’s huts from a previous era. Amazingly our instructor said that many of them are still in use. Along the way we stopped to do some snorkeling, we saw so many colourful fish, some starfish and little octopuses. It really was a beautiful sight and there were some great caves to explore too. We stopped again when we got to Cala Llebeig where we did some more snorkeling which by now we were very comfortable and confident doing. Then we got back into our kayaks and headed back to El Portet. It was an amazing experience that we would thoroughly recommend. After all that activity we retreated back to the villa and it took us a good 2 days to get over the “physical exertion” with plenty of food and plenty of wine to help with the recovery!!!! Our second energetic activity was planned .................. for our next holiday!!! Too much of a good thing and all that!!!

Moraira- lovely holiday spot. - Rev. & Mrs Patton. Date of travel: Oct 2008
We love Moraira simply because it's so different from the rest of the Costa Blanca. Much quieter and more restful and less inclined to partying and young kids on group holidays. There are some super places to eat here, really first class and the town is beautiful. If you've not been here before give it a go, it's a really lovely place and not at all your typical Costa Blanca.

Fabulous Moraira
The resort of Maraira has class. It is also incredibly pretty & in pristine condition. Somehow it still maintains the charm of a small town. Wonderful restaurants - too many to mention except my favourites, Le Dauphin (this has a michelin recommendation ) & La Luna (not such a stunning venue, but superb food and excellent service at a price anyone can afford) Beautiful Chill out bar in the "Club Nautico" (you don't have to have a boat to go there). Stunning sea views, with huge sofas to lay back & sip the Cava.
