Cala del Moraig beach

A visit to Cala del-Moraig will allow you to get closer to the marine nature that surrounds the Costa Blanca. The surrounding area is also home to many unique hiking trails that take you to nearby coves and natural caves. You can explore the caves or enjoy a secluded day by the water at this beautiful beach. It is well worth a visit while in Moraira.

The northern part of Moraira is the La Marina Alta area, a beautiful place with scenic rocky beaches and gently shelving sands. This is where you will find the Cala del Moraig beach, which is a scenic, idyllic cove just 5 minutes from your villa. This cove is known for its scuba diving opportunities and has a beach bar and restaurant in the summer months. There is even a section of the beach reserved for Naturists.


Cueva de les Rates archaeological site

If you are looking for a fascinating archaeological site in Spain, you should visit the Cueva de les Rates, a cave located close to the town. This underground passageway was created by the water erosion on the rocks, and is home to different species of bat. It is also worth exploring the town’s old centre, with its picturesque stone streets and traditional Costa Blanca houses. Alternatively, visit the Marjal del Senillar, a protected area consisting of lagoons separated by a sandy embankment. It was declared a wildlife reserve in 2004, and many species are endangered here.

The 1970 campaign confirmed that the Cova de les Rates had several levels and a pattern of stratigraphic density. Previous research had suggested that level XI was Aurignacian. However, the materials recovered in recent campaigns are consistent with the Gravettian attribution, and radiocarbon dates support this view. If you visit the site, be sure to bring a camera!

Auditori Teulada Moraira

The auditorium of Moraira is located in the higher part of the double urban core. It is visible from both the coast and Teulada. The building is an example of cultural continuity. It is part of the city, whose identity has remained intact for centuries. The auditorium is a symbol of this union. There are two cores to the building: the lower and the upper one.

The Agrupacion Musical Cultural of Teulada performs concerts in honour of their patron saint. They also present “Paremia, el Musical”, a transmedia play that aims to collect women’s positive and negative remarks. The show is open to all schools interested in the production. This event is also open to the public. However, you should know that the theatre isn’t only a venue for concerts and plays.

Calpe beach

If you’re looking for a beach in the Spanish resort town of Moraira, you should definitely consider L’Ampolla. This urban beach has a length of 400 meters and a width of 50 meters. It’s very close to the town center and has a large parking area nearby. The beach is also close to the Marshland of Senillar and has great views of the Penyal de Ifach rock.

Another beautiful beach in Calpe is the Cantal Roig, which lies just south of the town centre. This beach is made of fine-grained sand and features the remains of the Queen’s Baths, which are valuable archaeological excavations. You can also enjoy the view of the fishing boats in the port and try local cuisine. However, you may prefer the calmer waters of Calpe’s Playa del Cantal Roig, which is approximately 1200 meters long.
