“Beautiful location, secluded pebble beach”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Located a few minutes from Moraira, you have to park your car at the top of the cliff and walk down a steep road towards the beach. There used to be a parking at the bottom, but after rebuilding it a few times after winter storms, the local authorities gave up and now there is only room for a few cars at the bottom. The beach is made of large pebbles - bring swimming sandals as it's hard to get in and out of the water. Better be a good swimmer, currents can be tricky. Good place for snorkeling or scuba diving. You can have a drink or a meal at either of two "chiringuitos" - restaurants set up for the summer season. The food is good and the prices within the average for the area. There is a nudist beach at the far end, if you'd rather go naked.

Really nice little beach, clear waters & a low cliff to dive off! Great "chiringuitos" on the beach for cold beers & lovely food, mega chill-out zone!

“Chiringuito-cala-moraig”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

A beautiful cove to visit. The Chiringuito has a great choice of excellent tapas. The paella was the best we have had, since moving to this wonderful country 5 years ago.

“Our Beach!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Cala del Moraig, Cumbre del Sol Benitachell, this beach is immediately below where we live, it is a small very pleasant beach with an "in season" cafe/bar where drinks and meals can be had. We often pop down in the evening for a coffee. The car park has suffered over the years by frequent storms which has destroyed the car park. The cafe is assembled at the start of the season (May ish), and removed in October.You now have to park on the steep hill road or at the top and walk down, get the fittest member of your party to drive down to the bottom and drop the rest of you all off! However you get there it is well worth the visit, Juan who manages the cafe will always give you a warm welcome. Can get crowded in August and at weekends.
The beach at the far end is a nudist beach.
