A beach holiday in Spain

One of the great things about arranging a holiday in Spain is the fact that, for most of the year, you are guaranteed sunshine, and from experience, also guaranteed to find, very easily, clean, safe and friendly beaches up and down the Costa Blanca.

Not everyone is a beach bum of course but it's great to know that if you do fancy a quick dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean, or to relax with a book, on a sun lounger, on a lovely clean beach, you will have no problem in finding somewhere to go.

Moraira, has eight beaches of various sizes, some family friendly, some with disabled access, and some very secluded and private places too. We look at the beaches in Moraira, including some little known ones too, with a view to selecting which one would suit your Spanish holiday this year?

Playa del Portet.

Playa del Portet, or Portet beach, a small inlet which is sort of in the shape of a sea shell and although facilities such as bars and shops are fairly minimal, it's safe and secluded and ideal for a quick dip. This is really a quiet, picturesque cove that has fine sand and lovely clear water. It is located between Moraira port and the Cap d`Or Tower on the seafront. Some water sports are available at certain times of year from this small beach.

Club Nautica beach

Club Nautica beach is not technically open the public all the time as it is affiliated to users of the popular marina and yacht haven. The beach  is accessed through the port, and although small, it does have a restaurant. If you are not a boat owner, it is still possible sometimes to get in, but it is best to ask first instead of just walking in there.

Torre Cap d'Dor beach

Torre Cap d'Dor is another very small beach which can be only reached by walking from from the El Portet beach nearby, so no worries about cars driving past, which makes it a very quiet place to go and a great beach for just getting away form it all.

La Cala beach

La Cala is another small beach with lovely clear waters but is rocky and difficult to access so you can only get to this beach by boat so if this is possible, be very aware of the days weather conditions, tide times, and make sure you not only tell someone you will be there but also make sure you have a mobile phone signal, just in case.
