The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, it's miles of beautiful sandy beaches and fantastic weather which have kept tourists flocking back year after year to resorts like Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella. The Costa del Sol caters for young and old alike, offering a host of entertainment choices for the native and visitor alike.
The coast boasts one of the highest concentrations of world class golf courses, to the extent that it is often dubbed "The Costa del Golf". For families there are theme parks, including water parks, go-karting, safari parks and many beautiful public gardens. For younger visitors the main areas of attraction are Benalmadena's Puerto Marina & '24 hour square' and Marbella's Puerto Banus. Both are very trendy and chic, but be warned the bars and clubs don't get busy until near midnight and stay open till dawn.
The area's history dates back to the Phoenicians and has since been inhabited by Greeks, Romans and Moors, all of whom have left their mark on the areas architecture and culture. Perhaps less well known is the areas culture, often in the shadow of its neighbour Seville, The Costa and the Malaga province are home to some of the finest Flamenco shows, bull fighting & tapas restaurants.
Nerja is on the seashore some 50 kilometres from Málaga on the N340 coastal highway, and marks the eastern tip of Málaga's Costa del Sol. Once a sleepy fishing village, the town now has a population of over 12,000.
Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. 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 town has, fortunately, managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise scenario which has been the inevitable result of the tourist boom in some of the coastal resorts. 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.
There are plenty of restaurants and cafes here to choose from, and the visitor can hire a horse-drawn carriage to explore the most romantic corner of the town.
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 three 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 the summer.

We stayed here for a week during a 6 week tour around Andalucia and this was the nicest place we stayed in. The apartment is comfortable, bright and very well equipped with a great balcony and roof terrace. El Capistrano village is immaculate and beautifully landscaped. Yes it is on quite a steep hill, but there is a shuttle bus into town, however we walked everywhere so that we felt less guilty about all the tapas we ate in the many bars in Nerja. A great place for a relaxing holiday with great nightlife not far away.

"Great little apartment"
Loved this cosy flat. Sat on the terrace every night with our glass of wine taking in the lights and view. My only criticism would be the small shower and bathroom.Nor is it suitable, because of the hill and steps, for the infirm. I do recommend and cannot wait to hopefully go back.

A really lovely holiday rental, in a well cared for complex.
All mod cons, plus a great terrace and BBQ.
Only 2 gripes:
1. It is a good 30min walk into Nerja town(which is lovely)
2. You have to rent sun loungers around the pool at a cost of 3 euros each per day. Exploitation if you ask me.

"Great Location for the Beach"
Great Location for the beach as it is only a 10 minute stroll down the steps!
Also a lovely view of the beach and sea.
However beware that there is a climb back up so not suitable for elderly people or families with small children.
