Moraira, a calm and pleasant seaside resort on the Costa Blanca

Moraira, formerly a poor fishing village, has become one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Costa Blanca in Spain. The small coastal town of Moraira actually belongs to the town of Teulada, located a bit further inland between Denia and Calpe, near to Benissa. Whilst the inhabitants of the quiet village of Teulada live off of the agricultural sector, the fishing village of Moraira is more of a busy seaside resort. Because of its isolated location among green hills, Moraira was able to become a seaside resort that is tranquil, pleasant and contemporary. Luckily, Moraira has been saved from the proliferation of tourist hotels and apartment complexes. In Moraira the sun shines on average 320 days per year, making it possible to spend your holidays here all year round.
