The Costa del Sol region
Nerja is located 55 km east of Malaga airport, and is on the eastern-most stretch of the Costa del Sol, bordering the Costa Tropical. This, together with its mild winter temperature (generally sunny days and cool nights), makes it an all round holiday destination.
Recommended visits to places of interest;
Nerja Caves; just 3km from centre of town; frequent buses. Not to be missed. A series of vast natural caverns, which feature paintings over 20,000 years old. One of the caverns has been translated into a concert hall, where performances are staged in the summer.
Granada; home of the Alhambra Palace, the Arab Quarter, the Cathedral and Crypt of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand, and a good modern shopping area.
Malaga; birthplace of Picasso and home of the Picasso Museum, Roman amphitheatre
Frigiliana, the most picturesque whitewashed Andalucian mountain village is just 6km away and is well worth a visit. If you have not hired a car there are frequent buses or arranged trips.
Also within driving distance or by arranged trips are Seville, Ronda and Gibraltar.
Nerja is a lovely little-known coastal town that people return to year after year. It combines an authentic, unspoilt Spanish flavour with modern amenities and stunning scenery. It enjoys a superb climate all year round, with an average of more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and is a year round holiday destination.
Nerja lies on the eastern most tip of the Costa del Sol where the mountains meet the sea, bordering the Costa Tropical. It is 55Km from Malaga airport, around 45 minutes drive on the A7/E15 motorway to Nerja, ex. 292.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Nerja has retained its Andalucian character, particularly in the old quarter with its narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Traditional Spanish culture and customs are still very much part of everyday life in Nerja, and there are many colourful festivals and street parades throughout the year. In addition there are many cultural events; music of all kinds, including jazz, classical, choral and formal and informal flamenco. There is a dance festival in the summer, and there are regular performances of flamenco and tango and some ballet at the local cultural centre.
The heart of Nerja is the spectacular Balcon de Europa, a magnificant palm-tree lined promenade on top of a towering cliff, once the site of a Moorish castle, with sweeping panoramic views of the Med and the small coves below, all against a backdrop of mountains and blue skies
There are a wonderful selection of restaurants and Tapas bars in Nerja, the majority have al-fresco dining, and many have sea-views. Visitors will find the prices extremely reasonable compared to their home countries. As well as traditional Andalusian cuisine, there is a wide variety of other cuisines available; British, German, Thai, Indian, Italian and
Nerja's nine sandy beaches stretching to over 16km in total.
Flanked and protected by the mighty Sierra Almijara mountain range(mostly natural parkland) Nerja is said to have the best climate on the entire Costa del Sol, not to mention the dramatic scenery the mountains provide.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, many retaining their typical Andalucian charm, plus of course a great variety of international cuisine on offer.
Shopping is plentiful
All major watersports are catered for, and golf is available about 20 min drive away. There are many walks available, and even the Sierra Nevada ski resort is only an hour and a half away.
Nerja's most spectacular attraction has to be its caves. The Cueva de Nerja is regarded as one of the most significant monuments of the world, with archeological remains dating back to the Paleolithic Age. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall where performances are staged duringt the summe
