Moraira (Valencian pronunciation: [moˈɾajɾa]) is a small, upmarket Spanish coastal town, part of Teulada (also known as Teulada-Moraira) municipality, in the Marina Altacomarca, 80 km north of Alicante and 100 km south of Valencia.
The town is located adjacent to the neighbouring village of El Portet and both communities form a tourist resort on the Costa Blanca strip, with 8 km of coastline backed by mountains and vineyards.
The Moraira valley is the convergent point of several mountain streams, which flow across the beach even during the driest August weather. Over time, these streams have deposited their rich alluvial soil on the valley bottom. To the north, the town is bordered by the Cap d’Or hillside.
Moraira boasts a very stable Mediterranean climate with approximately 300 sunny days a year. The summers are hot and the winters mild, with the surrounding foothills provide protection from harsh weather during the winter while creating a natural vortex for cooling sea breezes in the summer. The sea temperature during the summer months is up to 25 degrees and it hardly rains during the months July–August.
