Andalucia offers so much for the holiday maker - whether you are on a short "City Break" or aiming for a relaxing holiday - you will be enticed into visiting the stunning "white-washed villages" so typical of this area. Small narrow, winding streets, terracotta roof-tiled houses and small shops, boutiques and bars all intriguingly interwoven. These lovely old villages all offer their own olives, grapes, almonds, figs and home-made "terreno" wine and are pleased to invite you, the tourist to sample them.. Take a day trip and be rewarded with a glimpse of the real old Spain - much is still unchanged. Each village also has its own patron saint and the opportunity to take part in their celebrations is not to be missed.
Málaga is a fascinating city with much to offer, including shopping and visits to the the Alcazaba, the
old castle, Picasso museum and numerous typical tapas bars.
Marbella and Puerto Banus make for an enjoyable day out, for those who enjoy people-watching and admiring incredible yachts and elaborate cars.
Nerja has famous caves and make an ideal visit, especially if you need to escape the intense summer heat. The stunning Alhambra Palace, in Granada is under 2 hours drive, for an unforgettable day trip, and for winter breaks, the ski slopes of Sierra Nevada are 2 hours drive away.
The climate is very agreeable, offering plenty of sunshine all year.
Caleta de Vélez is a delightful area nestled between the busier resorts of Torre del Mar and, slightly further eastwards, Torrox and the very cosmopolitan town of Nerja. Predominantly low-rise, it was originally an old fishing port, and there is now also an attractive marina. The lengthy "paseo Marítimo" elaborately paved pathway stretches all the way along to Torre del Mar, with numerous traditional beach bars, restaurants and cafés en route. to quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger. The whole area is reasonably flat, making early-evening strolls for a drink or a meal out easy and pleasurable.
There are large straw umbrellas and sun beds available for hire along the local beaches and a lovely way to spend a lazy day beneath the shade, watching the waves lapping against the shore, your favourite book or Kindle to hand. Many beaches have children's play area and small, fun, fitness circuits. In 2015 the Caleta beach was awarded the Blue Flag.
Local amenities include supermarkets, shops, chemist, newsagent (newspapers and magazines in English, Danish and German available),cyber café, banks and a small post office. Each Saturday morning there is an extensive street-market, selling seasonal clothes, fruit, vegetables, local souveniers and much more. Particularly good for leather goods such as handbags, shoes, summer sandals etc.
Within a 10 minute drive is a huge hypermarket within an air-conditioned shopping mall - many familiar clothes shops are here, along with cafés, restaurants and a cinema complex.
Nearby, Aquavelis water park offers a great family day out,
Other sports facilities close by include golf, cycling, horse riding (- you can enjoy a gentle stroll or energetic ride along the beach) scuba diving, pedalos etc.
Torre del Mar is a traditional large Spanish town offering again, shops, tapas bars and restaurants - gastronomic feasts to suit all tastes, and a thriving night life. On Sunday afternoons the Spanish families, often 3 generations together, will dress in their finest clothes and take a gentle stroll through the pedestrianised streets and enjoy an elaborate ice cream to round off the day. There are many attractive artisan stalls in the night market held alongside the beach in the summer months.
Further inland, beyond Vélez Málaga, the main town of this region, is the stunning lake Viñuela, with a spectacular mountain backdrop and the many acres of natural forest and parkland of Alcaucín.
Beyond Nerja, heading eastwards towards the Costa Tropical the landscape changes again and a trip to Marina del Este, near La Herradura is thoroughly reccomended.
There are fabulous photo opprtunities in this lovely area known as the Axarquia, for amateurs and enthusiasts alike, and much inspiration for artists.
