Moraira most beautiful beaches
Moraira is a picturesque coastal town on the Spanish Costa Blanca and is a part of Teulada. Moraira is located in the province of Alicante and has some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the area. Below is a small list of “Moraira's most beautiful beaches”.
1. Playa de L'Ampolla
The children thought Playa de L'Ampolla was a super nice place. The beach is a real sandy beach, has a river full of fish that ends right next to the beach, there is a cafe for an ice cream, there are bouncy castles in the water and also rocks to jump from. As the icing on the cake, Moraira has a few shops and a small market that my daughter especially liked. Normally we go to a climbing park like in France for her birthday or we go to one water park full of slides like that time in Malaga. However, the water park was too far this year (Benidorm) and it was also reasonably pricey (120 euros for four including a discount). So this year she wanted to rent a SUP for the birthday and bouncy castles on the water.
Free parking on the beach
The price for one hour was 12 euros per child and for a whole day 25 euros per person. Be sure to bring a parasol and chairs, because there is no shade on the beach anywhere. There is a bar / restaurant right on the beach “El Castillo Moraira".
You can park easily and for free on the large shaded parking located on Calle Aitana, Teulada. The strange thing is that the car park calls “El Portet” while Playa del Portet is a little further! Note: Do not take the first large parking on Av. Madrid. That parking is of course also a good parking, but "El Portet" is really close to the beach.
2. Playa Platgetes
Behind the corner is another small beach with pebbles. It is called Playa Platgetes and you can park right at the beach. It is advisable to park there, because the beach is a few hundred meters further from Playa de L'Ampolla. You will find the sandy beach along the “Ctra. Moraira a Calpe " just past the parking" El Portet "in the direction of Calpe.
3. Playa del Portet
Last but not least! Like Playa de L'ampolla, this very beautiful beach is also located in Moraira. Playa del Portrait should certainly not be missing on the list of "Moraira's most beautiful beaches". We "discovered" the beautiful beach, because we took a walk from El Portet to Torre del Cap d'Or and we had a beautiful view of Moraira at the top. The visibility that day was very good and you could even see beyond Jávea. From Torre del Cap d'Dor you could clearly see the strong contrast between the rocks, the houses and the beautiful turquoise water in the bay.
Parking is possible on the small parking on "Calle Puerto Mejorada, Teulada" and offers space for 100 cars. I do not know if this parking is free, but I would be surprised if this were not the case. You can park for free in the streets (such as in Calle Puerto Lápice or Calle Puerto del Sol) in the area, as we did then.
Extra Tip: Jávea
Do you also love rocky coasts and swimming spots? Half an hour's drive from Moraira to the north you will find several picturesque and unspoilt bays with beautiful sparkling turquoise water. It is ideal for snorkeling. You will find all the necessary information in the following blog post “The eight most beautiful beaches of Jávea and the surrounding area".

Three beautiful walks in the surroundings of Jávea
- Walk to the caves of Cova Tallada. We made the 7 km long version through the natural park of Montgó (Parc Naturel del Montgó).
- Walk to the watchtower Torre Vigia Cap d'Or from Moraira in the municipality of Teulada.
- To the top of Penyal d'Ifac (Parque Natural del Peñón de Ifach), a massive limestone rock of 332 meters high just before Calpe.
