Geographic Location

Moraira, Spain

Moraira is a small fishing town with a geographic location in the Alicante Province on Spain’s Costa Blanca. It is between the coastal towns of Calpe (Calp) in the south, and Javea (Xabia) in the North with the rustic town of Bentiachell inland 5kms west. Getting to Moraira is incredibly easy with an abundance of options by air, land, and sea.

Getting to Moraira

By Air

Getting to Moraira by air is a dream with a wealth of local and International Airports nearby.

Valencia International Airport (VLC) which is 120 km to the North and Alicante-Elche Airport (ALC) to the south 85 km are the most obvious airports not only because of their proximity to the Costa Blanca coastal towns but due to the sheer number of direct flights from many european airports. Further north you do have Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) which serves International flights coming from North America. The journey by car from Barcelona to Moraira and the surrounding region as you get closer on your 5-1/2 hr drive (479 km), is stunning with bright orange groves increasing in volume as you get closer and closer to your destination. A trip that is scenically stunning as you get to the latter stages. Another option to the south 81 km’s past Alicant-Elche Airport is Murcia-San Javier Airport (MJV) which is 160 km or 100 miles from Moraira.

By Road

You have the option to drive to Moraira via two roads. The older and slower national highway N-332 or a more strongly recommended route is the faster AP-7 although it should be noted is a toll road and you will encounter at least one toll depending on where you are coming from.

By Sea

Arriving to Moraira from the sea again is an easy option via Denia which has a port that services the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Palma. Denia on the coast 31 km’s north of Moraira will take you 30 minute to drive by car. This is an ideal launch to and from the Balearic islands. Maybe combining Barcelona, Coast Blanca and the Baleric Islands into one trip or using Moraira as a main hub to jump back and forth?
