Moraira has grown from a small fishing village to an attractive holiday and retirement resort whilst retaining its unique charm that attracts visitors from all over Europe and is particularly popular with the Spanish who come from Madrid and Valencia. It has a small and colourful Main Street, a large marina, excellent variety of local shops, weekly open markets, harbour-side fish restaurants and bars still all retaining their Spanish character.
The sturdy fortress that overlooks the beach of Moraira dates from the days of Felipe II (16th Century). But today the importance of this fishing port in the municipal district of Teulada, located 6km inland, is due to its tourist infrastructure. Visitors from all over Europe have discovered the magnificent environment this town offers for holidaymakers or even for residents from abroad. Sandy beaches like El Portet, L'Ampolla and Plagetes, and also the tiny rocky coves with clear blue water (L'Andragó, Punta Estrella and La Cala) make Moraira the spot for fun, sun and sea sports. The modern Moraira Yacht Club completes the round -up for seadogs.
