Things to do in El Portet, Moraira

To do around the house and in El Portet.

Panorama

Around the house.

Apart from swimming in the pool and having barbecues, the house has plenty of books, board games and if you want to escape the midday sun, a flat screen TV, DVD and a Wii console. The bay of El Portet is only a 5 minute walk away and so is the start of the walk up to Cap d'Or, an 18th century fortress that served as a lookout point to protect the town from pirates. From the top you will have fantastic views both over Moraira and the other side of the peninsula. Snorkling; click the map below  to see the depths you can expect just off the beach. Find out more about El Portet restaurants HERE.
