Visitors to Moraira won't find high-rise apartment blocks here since such buildings have been banned by the municipality. Instead, this former fishing village is made up of traditional Spanish villas and churches. Moraira is home to smart cafes and seafood restaurants, many of which overlook the old port. A weekly market is held every Fridaymore

We have a second home in Moraira having fallen in love with the place four years ago. It's ideal for older people and families with younger children as it's a relaxed former fishing village with plenty of nice places to eat out and no loud nightclubs. There are a number of supermarkets around so if you're self catering you're sorted. There's also an excellent Friday market that sells fresh fruit and veg and is well worth a visit.

We rented an apartment direct from the owners who live in the villa above. They could not have been more helpful, we were picked up from Alicante airport despite a 2.5 hour delay and returned on leaving date by the owners at a cheaper rate than the local taxi services. Moraira is a lovely old fishing town, with some spectacular views, Caple Rock can be seen quite clearly, and the mountains and hills are quite spectacular. There are plenty of restaurants and bars, a very good weekly market and very clean safe beaches for families with children. The weather was great and the walk into the town, 10 minutes was good for buiding the appetite and the walk back 15 mins (some uphill) was no trouble. There are advantages to hiring a car or scooter as there are some restaurants and shops that are a little too far out to walk to. There is a pool behind the villa so early morning or evening swimming was a must. The locals were friendly and helpful, and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a walk into town and a quieter place to holiday.

Moraira is a lovely old fishing town, without all the high rise hotels and apartment blocks. It has something for everyone: scuba diving and boat trips, night life, restaurants and street cafes, a very good weekly market and very safe clean beaches for the kids. We had excellent weather and found the locals very friendly and helpful. We had a 10 minute walk from our apartment to the town and the beach and a 15 minute walk back with it being uphill on the return. We stayed in a privately owned apartment with the owners living in the villa above. They couldn't have been more helpful, advising us on the best places to shop, eat etc. Moraira is a very scenic town with a lovely old castle right in the middle, and a big marina right next to it. The shopping was very good as was eating out. A car would be useful as there are plenty of restaurants that are more accessible if you have transport and other local towns to visit. Would definitley go again.
