Teulada-Moraira is an attractive town on the Costa Blanca. With a unique character, great restaurants, perfect beaches and over 320 days of sun each year, it’s no wonder Teulada-Moraira is so popular.
This pretty little village was originally populated by 52 old Christian families dedicated to the production of Muscatel grapes and raisins. In honour of the patron saint; St. Catalina, the families built a beautiful late-Gothic church. The families worked as fisherman in nearby Moraira and in fear of pirate attacks they turned Teulada into a walled village.
Noticeable is the fact that unlike many other resorts along the coast, Moraira has not forgotten its roots. Although it has grown into one of the most popular destinations on the Costa Blanca, it has not sold-out to the tourist boom and isn’t plagued by the high-rise buildings and overcrowding of other resorts. Today both agriculture and fishing have given way to the tourism industry.
Teulada-Moraira is known as the most exclusive and pleasant place to stay whilst on holiday on the Costa Blanca, perhaps in Spain. Wisely, it has retained, the charm of a small picturesque fishing town nestled between mountains and vineyards but has also sensibly developed to provide a fantastic holiday experience whatever the budget and taste.
The two main beaches comprise clean golden sand and are nestled in attractive bays. Swimming here is safe and pleasant and the beach is a relatively un-crowded place to be even in the peak of summer and cleaned daily. Teulada-Moraira’s main beach is situated right next to the town centre with convenient pedestrian walkways and a park area meaning that it is not necessary to cross any roads to get to the town or the marina from the beach.
Teulada-Moraira will be host to a number of classical music concerts throughout November and December 2010.

Residents and visitors to Teulada and Moraira on the Costa Blanca can now take advantage of developments in social media to stay on top of news and events in the area.
The Mayor has stated the importance of enabling people to communicate in many new and different ways.
Both pages will be updated regularly and the Mayor wishes to reach as many people as possible – hence this blog post!
Additionally and excitingly for those who work on the move (such as this post author!), the council is to provide free WiFi in Teulada town square and from the castle in Moraira.
As well as serving its public and tourists, the council hopes to demonstrate its ‘Green IT’ credentials. By communicating in this way, the council hopes to reduce the paper it uses and help the environment.
Good on you, council. keep up the good work..
I have loved coming back and forth to Teulada Moraira for over 10 years. For the first few years, I rented villas and apartments, but for the last 6 or 7 years I have chosen to stay in some of the very fine Teulada Moraira hotels that Teulada Moraira has to offer.
Unlike many other towns along the Costa Blanca, Teulada and Moraira have avoided the large building programmes that have turned some towns into concrete jungles. Accordingly, Teulada Moraira only has a handful of hotels. But you should judge this town on the quality and not the quantity of the hotels. Each has its own character and style and all provide a fantastic base from which to explore the coast.

The municipality of Teulada-Moraira prides itself on its multicultural diversity. The municipality welcomes and is home to thousands of citizens from all around the world attracted by the climate and the beautiful countryside, the superb coastline and the clean sandy beaches and, of course, the hospitality of the locals.
The City Council, or Ayuntamiento de Teulada Moraira, has embarked on a programme of continual improvement, including widespread service improvement and building works, such as the new Auditorium and the Football stadium.
