El Portet beach:
Let's start by visiting the Portet Beach, a sandy beach that is 300 metres long. It is one of the most popular beaches in Moraira. It is a blue flag beach, as it is highly valued, in fact it has little depth and very calm waves, therefore it is a beach very visited by families.
This cove is located to the northeast of the municipality, next to the CV-746 road. The cove of l'Andragó itself has a viewpoint from which you can enjoy a full view of the Mediterranean Sea, and just below the viewpoint we find the cove, a small rocky cove that has metal stairs to enter the water comfortably. An incredibly charming cove.
Les platjetes and l'Ampolla:
This cove is located 600 metres northeast of Cala de l'Andragó, and is a small sandy beach separated by a stretch of rock. At 300 metres from it is the beach of "l'Ampolla", the busiest beach in Moraira as it is located in the town centre. It is 250 metres long and 38 metres wide. It is the closest beach to all the services, restaurants and shops. It is also a very family-friendly beach.

The Castle of Moraira:
This is a defensive construction dating back to the 18th century made of rock from an old quarry near the village. Inside Moraira Castle there is an exhibition on the coastal defence towers, towers that served to warn of possible attacks from the sea.
The port of Moraira dates back to 1935, the year in which the first breakwater was built to mitigate the storms against boats. We must remember that Moraira is an old fishing village.
The Old Town:
The old town of Moraira was created in the 19th century, as until then there was only the port and some fishermen's houses. Already in the 19th and 20th century the construction of different buildings began, both holiday homes and hotels and second homes.
