Moraira

Moraira is a small town in the La Marina about half way between Alicante 80 kms to its south and Valencia 108 kms to its north. Barcelona is 438 kms to the north. Moraira remains one of the most unspoilt resorts on the Costa Blanca, with 8km of beautiful coastline backed by mountains. There is a high proportion of expats living here from Northern Europe, and the area is very popular with retirees.

Moraira has more than 2,000 hectares under cultivation and 1,000 hectares of vineyards. The vineyard area, where they grow Muscatel grapes for wine making, .is away from from the coast, up in the hills, where the climate is a little cooler, and the land is not so valuable for villa development.

The 9,500 permanent population increases to as many as 30,000 during the summer tourist season.
