The coastal town Moraira on the Costa Blanca is part of the municipality of Teulada and is known for its tranquility and its beautiful, traditional fishing port, but also for the large marina. At the end of the 18th century, when Teulada, which is located further inland of the country, was still a farming town, its crops were exported through natural ports.
As time went by, people began to settle next to their workplace and began to dedicate themselves more and more to fishing. This was the beginning of the town that is known today as charming Moraira. With an average temperature of 18ºC and an average of 320 days of sunshine per year, Moraira is a perfect destination all year round.
