|My sister and I some years ago|
We decided that this year was the time to return, and of course we had to do it with my family or it wouldn't have been the same. So this Easter the four of us, along with my mum and dad and my sister and her boyfriend, made the trip back to what was once regarded as our second home, the quiet village of Moraira in Spain.

Despite it being thirteen years later, that place has barely changed. The same bar was there, its owners slightly older and now parents themselves, but apart from that exactly the same.

If you are ever looking for a quiet family holiday I would recommend Moraira hands-down. It has everything you need, and yet is unspoilt. It's building have a height restriction so it will never reach the level of nearby Benidorm, and it has four beautiful beaches all within walking distance of each other. If you prefer getting out and about, it is within an hours reach of many towns including Calpe with it's shallow, turquoise waters and freshly caught seafood displayed outside harbour-side restaurants, Javea, where new meets old and a tapas bar is just around the corner, or the old town of Gata known for its traditional craft of basket weaving.
The pool was pretty cold, but the children embraced it with glee, particularly loving pushing daddy and their uncle in there!
We only spent a week out there but by the end of our trip we all wished we could have stayed for longer, and I'm sure it won't be our children's last visit to this special place.
