Portet de Moraira is one of the most beautiful beaches of this town in Alicante. Thanks to its location, you will be able to enjoy calm waters that are ideal for taking part in water sports at any time of the year.
The location of the Portet de Moraira
This beach is located right next to the Moraira port. In addition, it is flanked by the Punta de Moraira, a small ledge that protects this beach from the Levante winds. To get here, it is necessary to take the regional CV-737 highway if you’re coming from the north, or the CV-746 if you’re coming from the south.
All you need to know about Portet Moraira
This sandy area is very close to the centre of Moraira. However, you will notice immediately that it’s landscape is not urban at all. Beyond some houses near the shore, the environment is dominated by several outcrops with abundant flora. Its crystal clear waters invite you to cool off in the hottest months. The turquoise tone that you will see in the distance is due to the presence of posidonia oceanica, an important seabed plant that is responsible for filtering and oxygenating the water in the area.
The length of this beach is about 300 m, mostly covered by sand, although you will also come across some stony areas. The width, at high tide, is about 10 m long. Therefore, you will always be close to the water.

Activities in the Portet de Moraira cove

The sandy area, located in the middle of the bay, is perfect for the practice of different water sports. You will find many users aboard kayaks, since it is one of the most popular activities.

Where to park at the Portet de Moraira beach?
Parking in the area is not easy, since the beach is surrounded by narrow streets and there are not many parking spaces available.

The walking distance to the beach is about 200 m.
Alternatively, you can look for parking in the port. It is a little further from the coast, but you will not have to walk more than 400 m to reach the shore.
