Mini guide to Moraira
Moraira is situated on the Costa Blanca near Alicante, some 8kms from Teulada and is to the south of Javea. The coast road from Alicante Airport gives splendid views across a vineyard-covered countryside.
Moraira is a quiet, relaxing, town with 8kms of clean and safe, Blue Flag beaches, clear Mediterranean Sea and its own mountain range as a backdrop. There are plenty of car parking spaces along the beach and restaurants & bars are close at hand, as is a Red Cross centre.
For local colour, visit the harbour with its fish market auction, which is open from Tuesday to Sunday inclusive. Teulada has a lively street market with local produce and craft items for sale.
Teulada holds an annual festival, held in July, in honour of the patron saint, the Virgin of the Unsheltered and the Virgin of Carmen, the patron saint of fishermen and sailors. There is a carnival parade through the streets, fireworks and a water procession of local fishing and pleasure boats.
Holiday amenities include a diving centre.
The area has a number of sites of historical interest, such as Portet Cove, which is a picturesque inlet used over the centuries as a safe haven by Phoenician, Greek, Roman and Arab sailors, as they traded around the Mediterranean Sea. It is a gentle stroll to the watchtower near Cap d'Or.
The Cova de les Cendres is the site of an archaeological dig and the plan is to eventually build a museum to display the items found there. The castle at Moraira was built in 1742 and has links with the Bourbon family.
Local car hire is available from Centro Com. Los Pinos C/Pintor el Greco Na 44, 03724 Moraira.
