The Costa Blanca has become one of Spain's favourite holiday areas and is famous for its wonderful climate, spectacular scenary and fascinating small towns.
Alicante and Valencia are the two main cities of the region and their airports provide easy and reasonably priced access to the area throughout the year.
The area offers plenty to see and do. The coastal towns of Altea and Calpe to the south, Javea and Denia to the north are all are all well worth a visit and situated within a half hour's drive of the apartment. A little further afield is Benidorm, by far the biggest tourist centre of the coast and approximately midway between Moraira and Alicante. Its theme parks and other attractions provide lively entertainment for all generations throughout the year.
Other local leisure facilities include 3 large Golf courses, tennis, football, squash, all water sports, boat hire and trips, horse-riding, go-kart racing tracks for both adults and children.
The mountain towns and villages behind the coast are only a short distance from the major resorts but life there is a world away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
A small coastal town, Moraira is situated in the beautiful mountainous area of the Costa Blanca. The resort is conveniently placed between the airports of Alicante and Valencia (about 90km from each). However, the surrounding area has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, with beautiful and unspoilt scenery and many small villages to explore.
Moraira, small enough to be unaffected by mass tourism, and fortunate to have retained much of its original charm and character - no high rise development has been permitted - is now vibrant and cosmopolitan holiday village. There is a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants with a choice of international cuisine, all within a few minutes walk from the apartment, as well as Indian, Chinese and Deli take away food at very reasonable prices. There is also a large open market every Friday held right behind the apartment.
Fishing boats still sail from the port, and a magnificent fish auction is held from Tuesday to Sunday in the Lonja (public exchange market) right in the port area. However their numbers are now far exceeded by the luxury yachts and pleasure craft that today use the port facilities and marina.
The two main local sandy beaches, awarded the prestigious EEC Blue Flags for cleanliness, are well tended and very safe for family bathing.
If you are lucky to be there in July, the Patron Saint is the Virgin of the Unsheltered and the Virgin of Carmen who is said to protect the sailors and fishermen. There is a beautiful parade and fireworks and a water procession with the statue of the Virgin floating among endless bouquets of flowers. Quite a scene to be seen!
Moraira enjoys an enviable climate with an average of 325 sunny days each year supporting its claim to be an all year round resort. The World Health Organisation has said that the climate in this part of the Costa Blanca is one of the most equitable in the world.
