Places to Eat and Drink


You would never be short of finding a lively place to go to in the evenings. With clubs and bars like Acuario, Bananas, the excellent Algas Beach Bar and many more, you are assured of having a fantastic night out - if you want it! People often come to Moraira, however, for the quieter sort of holiday. If you really want to freak out once in a lifetime . . .. the noisier resorts are not very far away.

There are many places of interest to see on day excursions to other coastal resorts such as Javea, Calpe, Denia, Altea, Villajoyosa and Alicante.

There is also spectacular scenery inland a little including the wonderful mountain-top fortress of Guadalest, the 'Garden of Eden' water glades and waterfall of Fuentes del Algar, the Vergel Safari Park near Denia, Europe's largest palm forest at Elche and the ancient city of Murcia. Valencia (third largest city in Spain) is less than one hour drive away and Barcelona (second largest) and the capital Madrid are three to four hours away - all reachable by motorway. Spain's answer to Euro Disney, Port Adventure near Barcelona, is about Three and a half hours away. We are also only 45 minutes away from 'Fenestrate' where Southern Spain's answer to Disneyland will open in 1999. The famous 'Lemon express', running between Alicante and Denia, is also worth a ride as it is considered to be one of the great train journeys of Europe.



If you like open markets in addition to the weekly Friday market held next to the Moraira main beach, you could plan a visit to the various markets held at nearby resorts for each day of the week! Apart from the buzzing activity, you would see inexpensive fresh fruit and vegetables, local specialities, herbs and spices, leather goods, clothes, rugs, fresh and silk flowers, souvenirs, pottery and a whole variety of other goods.
