Nerja

Nerja

The town of Nerja is on the coast some 35 minutes from most of our villas. Once a sleepy fishing village, the town now has a population of over 12,000, which probably quadruples during the summer months. 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. However, the heart of Nerja is its spectacular Balc�n 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. Nerja caves are not quite in Nerja, but a couple of kilometers away in Maro, buses frequently run between there and town, or it costs about a Euro to use the caves car park.
