Possibly the most attractive resort on the Costa del Sol, Nerja lies some 50kms east of Malaga. Nerja has managed to blend its natural charm and the peace and quiet of a fishing village with the modern services of a first class resort. Nerja has recently been developed omitting the usual high rise buildings found in other resorts. The policy of the local government is to limit highrise building to a minimum.
Nerja's centrepiece is the Balcon de Europa, a palm-fringed promenade offering wonderful views of the coastline. From here you can walk into the old town, a maze of narrow cobbled streets filled with interesting shops and boutiques, cafes and a large number of restaurants, many of which are highly recommended. In the evening this whole area has a wonderful atmosphere.
Within the town itself there are a handful of small sandy coves plus the lovely Burriana Beach 1km away where a variety of watersports are available along with several beach bars and restaurants. The beach can easily be reached from the town via the newly-built cliff top path.
A short drive from Nerja is the pretty, unspoilt, white village of Frigiliana. A peaceful village spread over two hills, made up of narrow streets with whitewashed houses decorated with flowerpots and hanging flowers. An enchanting place where the natives are friendly and the prices are reasonable.
Sierra Nevadas fine skiing resorts are less than two hours away from Nerja.
Well worth a visit are the famous Nerja Caves, situated about 5kms from Nerja, near Maro. These form a kind of underground cathedral, containing prehistoric paintings and beautiful stalagmites and reputedly the world's largest stalactite. The caves also hold concerts several times a year in their vast underground auditorium.
There is a market each Tuesday. Facilities like tennis, swimming pools, boat rental and watersports are present. There are lots of beautiful little bays all along the coast. From Nerja one can take the bus to cities like Malaga (58 km) or Granada (100 km).
