Moraira

An unspoilt coastal town, Moraira is situated in a beautiful marina offering a wide variety of harbour-side fish restaurants and bars full of Spanish character. The delightful town square and its assortment of local shops and markets is home to a pretty church and narrow, cobbled streets and is a great place to spend time wandering and seeking out souvenirs. Bejewelled with an assortment of sandy and rocky coves along the winding picture-perfect coast road, Moraira caters well for tourists and is extremely popular, yet manages to retain its Spanish charm. We have a good selection of villas in Moraira, most of them close to the town or in the surrounding countryside. A further, small selection of villas is located on the Cumbre del Sol, a hilltop region offering magnificent views of the coast and countryside.

Excursions and Places of Interest

Excursions and Places of interest at Moraira

Vineyards

A short drive inland will take you to the Jalon Valley; a picturesque resort with an abundance of flourishing vineyards. There are various opportunities to sample local wine made from the moscatel grape.

Cruises

Boat cruises are available from the nearby marinas at Javea, Calpe and Altea, which provide a chance to enjoy Costa Blanca’s stunning coastline from a different perspective. If you fancy a trip that takes you further afield, a ferry from Denia can whisk you over to Ibiza for an impromptu day trip.

Natural areas of beauty

The stunning coastline of Costa Blanca is the region’s principle attraction, inspiring its name with mile upon mile of fine white sand, with many beaches awarded prestigious Blue Flag status. In Moraira you will find a variety of beaches from long ribbons of sand to small rocky coves. From many of which you have superb views of the Peñón de Ifach rock - a fantastic landmark that stands over 300 metres tall and can be seen for miles around. Keen walkers will find a haven of wildlife as well as incredible views at its summit. Inland the landscape is no less impressive, with other renowned beauty spots including the hilltop village of Guadalest steeped in history and the verdant vineyards of the beautiful Jalon Valley, backed by the mountains of the Montgo National Park.

Attraction parks

Located about half an hour south of Moraira, the lively resort of Benidorm offers three excellent attraction parks for you to enjoy. The first of these is Terra Mítica, which is themed around ancient Mediterranean civilizations. There are roller coasters and other adrenaline-inducing rides to enjoy, as well as spectacular shows telling historical battles and age-old legends. Mundomar Animal Park is another great attraction, with a whole host of animal shows to enjoy, providing a fun filled day for all the family. Finally, there is Terra Natura where you can see a huge variety of wildlife and plenty of entertainment and adventure activities.

Water Parks

Also located in Benidorm, Aqualandia is well worth a visit for a fun-filled day out! Known as the biggest and best-known water park in the area, Aqualandia offers something for all ages including Adventureland for younger children, a fantastic wave pool, and the highest and steepest water chutes in Europe!

Other Places of interest

Guadalest

The village of Guadalest is well worth a visit on your villa holiday, perching at the pinnacle of this mountain landscape, it commands impressive views of the picturesque valley and reservoir below. Despite its small size, this historic gem is quintessentially Spanish and brimming with remnants from the Moorish occupation of Spain, including the 12th century Castle of San José accessed through a natural tunnel in the rock, as well as the Castle of La Alcozaina. There are also several museums and other fascinating antiquities, making for an absorbing day out.

Algar Waterfalls (Fuentes del Algar), Callosa

This beauty spot is a must when staying in Costa Blanca, and ideal to twin with a visit to Guadalest for a wonderful day out. The natural water falls of Algar are carefully preserved to maintain their original environment. You can swim and jump into many of the natural rock pools along the path of the falls, for a really refreshing dip. Then if you follow the path to the top (can only be done on foot) there is a shop and a Mediterranean spice garden.

Calpe

Just south of Moraira, and easily reached via the pretty coast road, Calpe is a bustling town full of bars, restaurants and two fantastic blue flag sandy beaches.

Altea

The nearby town of Altea can be found within a 30 minute drive and offers a charming and tranquil retreat for a day of exploration, with its small yet picturesque coves and pretty streets leading to the beautiful blue-domed Parochial Church at its heart.

Valencia

Further up the coast from Costa Blanca is Valencia, a cosmopolitan city brimming with attractions for an enjoyable day trip. Here you can find everything from fantastic shopping promenades and the bustling marina, to the historic treasures of the ancient district and cathedral quarter. The futuristic, breathtaking architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences sits alongside the vast Turia Gardens, while the nearby Albufera Nature Park completes a region of spectacular diversity.
