Towards the end of the 19th century, Teulada was little more than a small farming village. The farmers would take any excess produce down to the nearby natural port of Moraira, to sell it off to boatmen who would call in there.
At that time Moraira was no more than a few small shacks that fishermen from Teulada would build here and there, so as to have somewhere to store their tackle.

As the years went by, these primitive constructions were transformed into the homes of these workers and their families, and decades later they turned into the important coastal tourist centre that we know today.


Today, Moraira offers lovers of the sea no less than six beaches and coves.

No sooner will you see them than you'll fall in love with them - love at first sight!
Shaped like a sea shell and sheltered by the Cap d'Or peninsula, the Playa del Portet provides calm and crystal clear water, far from the madding crowd.

For families with small children in search of services and comfort, the best beach is the Playa de L'Ampolla, lying just beneath Moraira Castle.
