Holidays to Moraira take you to a lively coastal town on Spain’s Costa Blanca. Here you’ll find cobbled streets and old-world charm, together with modern bars and boutiques.
An old-fashioned charmer
This small coastal town sits on the northern tip of Spain’s Costa Blanca, neatly pocketed between the mountains and the sea. Originally a fishing village, it’s grown into a lively holiday place – Madrid’s city slickers flock here to parade its palm-lined avenues and eat in the marina restaurants. But the town hasn’t lost its traditional Spanish charm, courtesy of its cobbled streets and old market square.
Blue Flag beaches
There’s a choice of 2 beaches, both Blue Flag winners with golden sands. The main one is Playa la Ampolla, right next to town, and the other is the smaller El Portet, by the marina. Both of them have restaurants within strolling distance of the sands, as well as chiringuitos – bars literally on the beach – that supply ice-cream, snacks and drinks. And you’ll be well served for watersports, too.
Daytrips to Valencia
It’s a 90-minute drive to Spain’s third-largest city. Here, there’s an old town to explore, where you’ll find one of Spain’s biggest and oldest cathedrals, along with the country’s first bullring. For contrast, the City of Arts and Sciences is a cutting-edge complex that’s home to interactive museums and an outdoor art gallery. And Valencia’s the birthplace of paella, so do sample one while you’re here.
