Moraira and the surrounding area boasts a fantastic amount of restaurants, from fine dining to a casual bite – and of course – plenty of seafood!
Almost every town has a weekly market with fresh, colourful and delicious fruit, vegetable and local delicacies. You can pick up a kilo of delicious cherries for 2€ or a big bag of juicy oranges for next to nothing! Oh, and whatever you do, don’t try some made-on-the-spot churros…

We’re so lucky to live on the coast, a seafood lover’s dream. In Calpe, you’ll find a daily (Monday – Friday) fish auction from 5pm-8pm where you’ll see the fishermen flog their impressive catches of the day – octopus, mackerel, sea bream, squid and loads of shellfish. Nip across to the supermarket and buy mackerel for less than 2€ a kilo when in season or sea bass for a fraction of the cost in the Uk.
With such fresh food costing just a couple of euros, it hardly makes it worth dining out. Or does it…
No trip to Spain is complete without a delicious paella. These can be tricky to make it at home but if you take a stroll along the port you can enjoy a starter (soup, mussels, sardines) followed by a meat, vegetable or seafood paella, a dessert AND a glass of Sangria for less than 15€ per person! It’s a must.
With an eclectic mix of nationalities, this area is bursting with German steakhouses and grills, cheap-as-chips Chinese restaurants and delicious Italians. Fine dining is in abundance, particularly in the Old Towns of the villages, and of course a quick ‘boci’ along the beach-fronts are a-plenty.
So if that’s whet your appetite and you fancy a slice of the Spanish lifestyle, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
