Moraira: The old fishing village of Moraira has three fine beaches very suitable for bathing, and a yachting marina. Moraira has many excellent restaurants, bars and shops, a lot of them along the sea front. Moraira market every Friday is well worth visiting for fresh fruits and vegetables, clothes, crafts and household effects.
Amenities: There is plenty to do in the area - play golf, sail, go scuba diving, sea fishing, water skiing, horse riding, go-karting, bird watching, walking, and much more. Relatively short drives (10km) up or down the coast lead to the resorts of Javea or Calpe, or Altea (20km); further south is Benidorm (30km) with excellent night life and the exciting Terra Mitica theme park very popular with children. Exploration of the mountainous area inland is also well worthwhile, for example through the Jalon valley with its beautiful vineyards and villages, along the mountains of the striking Bernia range, or to the dramatic Moorish village of Guadalest. For the energetic there are magnificent walks throughout this area.
Moraira enjoys a typical subtropical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the north winds in winter.

In 1986 the World Health Organization recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
