Unlike many sites on the Costa Blanca, Camping Moraira is not a place that people tend to over-winter in. The last time we were here we more or less had the place to ourselves. This time it is a bit busier, but there are still fewer than half a dozen mohos parked-up. It's odd really, because Moraira town seems full of British people, who either own or rent property. Perhaps the 2km walk along the shore to the town centre or the short steep hill up to the site put people off. Also, due to the wooded nature of the site, many of the terraced pitches are not suitable for motorhomes, and those that are seem narrow, so you would struggle to 'spread out' under your awning, or establish an outdoor kitchen like many over-winterers like to do. Added to that access roads are tight. It took a lot of care and crossed-fingers to extricate ourselves from the site when we left.

The place has good points. It is home to a lively colony of squirrels and has abundant bird life - which is fun to watch. There is a view of the bay giving great sun rises if you are an earlybird. The showers are reliably warm, and each pitch has its own water point and an emptying drain. Then there is the question of the sanitary block doors, which must be said go beyond the category of being memorable and reach the heady heights of the unforgettable. What is certain, is they are utterly unequivocal, there is no way you will ever inadvertently walk into the opposite sex's facilities.

Conversely the female block door is distinctly Cosmo Badedas ad.
