Moreira: the ideal budget winter break?

Posted: 26 Feb 2012 04:26 PM PST

With the UK experiencing a particularly cold spell at the moment, a lot of people are understandably having a bit of the winter blues. Even with record low temperatures across much of Europe, there are still some places you can go to get away from rain, snow and icy winds.

Spain is always a great option to get a quick blast of mid-winter sunshine, just the thing to pick you up from the cold, broken resolutions and (for some) post-valentines blues.

There are plenty of cheap flights to all the best-known destinations, with flights to Malaga and Alicante flights being particularly affordable at the moment. Even though you'd be hard pressed to find much cold in Spain, even this time of year, one of the best short-break destinations, and one of my favorites, is Moreira.

The plusses are simple, cheap travel, hotels and villas and a scenic relaxing seaside town with just the right mix of nightlife, daytime excursion potential and relaxing beaches and surroundings.

Moreira is especially great for those looking to catch a breather from hectic city life. The views from just about any balcony you can find are fantastic; all you can see is miles of ocean and beautiful coast line. It may sound like a quiet town, but there are plenty of bars, restaurants and tour guides for people looking to let their hair down.

The only downside is that it is about an hours drive from Alicante airport, which means you either need to rent a car or hire a potentially expensive taxi. However, if you book ahead, a taxi will cost about €80 each way, which split between a medium to large group isn't too bad. Hiring a car is generally a better option though; as it means you have the freedom to take day trips and stock up on groceries (i.e. sangria) rather than eating out every day.

But the real kicker is the weather. Moreira is in the Costa Blanca, which enjoys over 2,800 hours of sun per year (over double the UK's). The average temperature is 19 degrees C, so even the winters are beach friendly. In fact, in winter the average temperature almost never falls below 16 degrees C. While not exactly tropical weather it certainly beats the 5-degree highs the UK is seeing at the moment!

For anyone interested in a short winter break, Moreira is definitely a place to investigate, just be careful though, it's quite difficult to force yourself back to the airport at the end of the week!
