At the foot of the Sierra Almijara and Sierra Nevada mountains, approximately 50 km east of Malaga, lies the town of Nerja on the Costa del Sol. Situated on a rugged headland in an area of sheltered coves with excellent sandy beaches, overlooking the Mediterranean. Nerja is one of the smaller and more tastefully developed coastal resorts, noted for its absence of high-rise hotels and apartment buildings. Surrounded by some of the most fertile farmland in Spain, where olives, avocados and many other crops grow in abundance, Nerja remains a small unspoiled town. The old part of town is a maze of cobbled streets offering cafes and tapas bars, boutiques and fine shops. Later in the evening, the Balcon de Europa – a palm-fringed promenade overlooking the sea – and the cobbled streets of Nerja come to life and are lovely places to stroll or just sit and watch the world go by.
Nerja has five wonderful sandy beaches offering sunbed & parasol hire, watersports, pedaloes, tapas bars and restaurants.
The Costa del Sol boasts the best winter climate in mainland Europe with very low rainfall and high rates of year-round sunshine
