The Andalucia region
EASTERN COSTA DEL SOL
This is the 54 kilometre stretch of coast to the east of Malaga city.
From Malaga eastwards there are cliffs of up to 200 meters where the Sierra Almijara joins the sea. This section ends at Maro, on a coastal plain. It has an urban landscape surrounded by traditional agriculture.
Nerja is the most important urban centre on this end of the coast and has grown rapidly. Much of the eastern Costa del Sol's accommodation for tourists is found in Nerja, which is surrounded by tourist pueblos. This town also has one of this area's main tourist attractions - the Nerja Caves, a spectacular find that is open to the public and that hosts an annual music and dance festival within its famous caverns. At the foot of Nerja town a winding footpath joins several coves and there are some nice beaches to be found in this area.
Axarquia is an Arab name meaning "The East". This area, to the east of Malaga City, is much less developed than the west.
Major attractions are the spectacular unspoilt countryside and coastal villages. Shepherds lead their goats and sheep through hills and valleys, eagles soar the skies and pretty, unspoiled white villages abound, each having a version of local sweet wine made from sun-dried grapes.
The natural sub-tropical climate for the latitude is of hot summers, mild winters and little or no rainfall either side of the long summer season. This is further influenced by surrounding geographical features. Huge mountains to the north and east provide a barrier from cold north winds and the wide coastline maintain mild temperatures in winter.
Somehow Nerja, while cashing in on the fun-in-the-sun culture, has kept much of its quiet, Old World charm. It has good beaches, stay-awhile tapas bars, and a rich frosting of pastry shops. The evening paseo, the Spanish ritual of strolling and people-watching, packs the streets. Holding hands or ice cream cones, everyone meanders toward Nerja's Balcony of Europe, a people-friendly terrace overlooking the Mediterranean.
With its mild climate, you can enjoy yourself to the full all year round and take advantage of the relaxed way of life of a village that still retains much of the character of its moorish past. Today, Nerja offers an excellent range of quality accommodation and leisure time facilities. There are 16 Kms. of beaches , including the internationally famous Burriana beach that has once again been awarded by the Blue Flag of the European Union and the small coves below the impressive cliffs of Maro, which have been the inspiration of numerous artists who have set up residence here.
All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east . The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with geraniums, on which a canary can sometimes be heard singing...
However, the heart of Nerja is its spectacular Balcón de Europa, the "Balcony of Europe", a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff, once the site of the great Moorish castle, with sweeping panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the small coves and beaches below, against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.
The town's monuments include the 17th century Church of El Salvador, in a style which is a charming mixture of baroque and Moorish, or mudéjar, and the beautiful Gardens of Capistrano Playa, which descend to Burriana Beach.
However, Nerja's most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its fascinating caves, located just 3 kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during July.
CLIFFS OF NERJA - MARO Natural Area :
This protected coastline runs for 12km east of Nerja to La Herradura in the Granada province. Its dramatic rocky steep cliffs (acantilados) plunge down to the sea, leaving a few sheltered bays with beaches in between, which can be accessed via staircases or tracks. Located on the very edge of the Sierra Almijara, these limestone outcrops have been eroded by the sea and weather into fantastic shapes, with offshore stacks and arches and undersea caves.
There are restrictions on vehicles driving down to the beaches, while camping on the beach and fishing in the protected waters are forbidden.
Golf Courts nearby Velez Málaga and Rincon de la Victoria. ( 20 minute drive )
NERJA is the perfect holiday destination.

"A place hard to leave"
This is our second time this year and we are certainly coming back next year. You cannot imagine a better place to relax. The cottage is clean and well kept and the owners are most kind and helpful. There is nothing fancy about the cottage, it is spanish rural style, cosy and there is all you need to make a comfortable stay. Ah, there is no internet and mobile network is not exactly reliable. But at the end of the day this is just what makes it exceptional for a relaxing place, you are "out of reach" (you may go to Nerja to get connected or involved if you wish). And the best of it all: the most spectacular view from the terrace(s). You have the sea right in front of you, always something happening and to look at, the most beautiful sunsets this time of year and at night you will be overwhelmed of the starry nights. Activities around? Who cares, but there are plenty of possibilities since you must have a car. Granada, Malaga and Ronda are quite close. We came with books but hardly read much, we did pop in to see Nerja (again), it was more quiet this time because it was out-of-season. We were lucky to have six days with sun from morning till evening and temperatures (25C) above normal for Nerja. Plenty of restaurants around but much better to make your own food and enjoy it with the view. Can we recommend it? Oh surely. Just do not expect a high-tech audi-style modern type of cottage, if that's what you want you should look elsewhere. For us it was once again very hard to leave this wonderful place.

"The balcony beckons and it is difficult to tear yourself away"
This place is just fabulous. The situation is perfect for those who are seeking peace and quiet and who love simply looking at the sea. Watching the birds and observing the ever changing effects of the light as the day goes by makes for a relaxing time. The accomodation is comfortable and spotlessly clean. Everything you need for a self-catering holiday is provided-an important factor for us as we had no wish to eat out, preferring to make the most of our time here.There are 3 distinct outside places to sit and while away the time, each with it's own table and chairs so you don't have to move furniture. You can choose to be in the sun or the shade but the front balcony is the place to be at sunset as you watch the sun sink behind Nerja. There is plenty to do within easy reach including walking, beautiful drives and sight-seeing. Shopping is easily done in Nerja where there is a choice of supermarkets. We left here reluctantly, feeling chilled out and rested. This was our second visit and we very much hope to return one day.

"I didn't want to leave...."
This is a very special place! Initially Carmen met me in Maro and guided me to the house (within a National Park) and made sure I had everything I needed. I did and enjoyed my first of 10 wonderful sunsets there. Morning or evening you can sit out on one of 3 terraces and enjoy views on the sea and over the cliffs of Maro to the town of Nerja--a 5 minute drive away. In the mornings I heard only the waves and song birds; and at night saw only stars. But it is still a great central location for visiting a lot of Andalusia: I easily made day trips to Granada, Ronda, Cordoba, Malaga etc. I found the bed to be comfortable and the kitchen to have everything I needed to cook with. You can walk down the steps to your "private" beach below. It was March so I only saw other people there on the weekend. if you want to "get away from it all" but still be a short drive away from bustling Nerja than this is the place. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe there as the property is gated. There is another independent unit below the top floor that I rented and if you combined the 2 you have a space large enough for a group. Carmen did show me that unit and I would definitely consider renting it as well if I had a larger party of guests. If you love the sea and being surrounded by nature then you will love this place
