Where is Moraira?

Moraira is on the coast below Javea. It has grown from being a small fishing village to an attractive holiday and retirement town.

Moraira is still small and compact, ideal for the older person. The buildings are all low-rise which is nice and probably because of this it retains it’s unique charm.


The main beach in Moraira (L’Ampolla) is sandy but nothing like as good as other beaches in Costa Blanca such as Benidorm, Javea, Denia or Calpe. The list could go on and on – ok it’s nice but nothing special!


L’Ampolla beach

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.

Do also check out Moraira’s other sandy beaches of L’Ampolla and 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.

Moraira’s marina is very nice and swanky. This area contains some amazing restaurants, it’s a great area for eating outside. The main street is small and colourful with an excellent variety of local shops.


Make sure you visit the local market selling fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other locally-made goods and produce – market day in Moraira is on a Friday morning.

“Overall thought Moraira very pretty and having visited Calpe, Javea, Altea, Benidorm thought it was the nicest place overall. Guadalest well worth a visit, although I hadn’t appreciated the waterfalls were so close and we didn’t get to visit S’Algar!” Sonia and Mark June 2010
