This charming place was once a very small fishing
village with few inhabitants. Thankfully, the area does not
have any high rise hotels and does not feature in the large
Travel brochures. The whole area has one of the best climates
in the world and has attracted settlers from all over, including
the larger cities of Spain.
there is still a fishing harbour, the village itself has
grown and now sports a large marina and numerous restaurants
and cafes. Most mornings there are auctions in the fish
market and on Fridays there is a street market. This starts
early and closes up around 1-2 pm. Finding a car parking
space is the biggest problem on Friday mornings! Best idea
is to leave the car short of the village and walk in. The
Banks and shops are all busy on market day.
is a Sunday morning car-boot sale beside the large petrol
station just as you leave Teulada. This also starts early
and finishes up around 1 pm.
the surrounding towns and villages have separate market
days. Altea is on Tuesdays and this is worth a visit, the
market stretches along the sea front with lots of stalls.
A word of caution - keep tight hold of valuables, watch
wallets in back pockets and handbags slung over shoulder
There are some lovely beaches round about the Moraira area
[and for 15 miles in either direction - take your pick!].
The Moraira beaches are quite sheltered and good for family
bathing. There is the usual beach-bars etc. Round the bay
from Moraira there is a superb beach at El Portet also with
bars and restaurants alongside.
