This area is considered to be one of the most exclusive of the Costa Blanca and you can get a good feel for the area by driving down to the coast from the town of Teulada. The typically white-washed houses and villas stand out against the backdrop of green countryside, which in parts is covered with pine tree forest, and big blue mass of sea. The coves and beaches are excellent for diving and snorkelling. The town of Moraira has a charming character with its boutiques, narrow winding streets, gourmet restaurants and chic port area.
