Beach holidays to Nerja are hugely popular in this eastern part of Spain's Costa del Sol. Wide stretches of sand go off in search of the horizon while the Mediterranean gently invites bathers into its shallow waters.
Take holidays in Nerja to taste the authentic flavours of the Spanish coast.
This beautiful former fishing village on the Costa del Sol has retained its traditional seaside charms, yet welcomes holidaymakers to modern hotels featuring every facility that they could possibly desire while relaxing on this sunny strip of Spain's magnificent Mediterranean coastline.
Miles of beaches can be found where the sea meets the land in Nerja, which is at the eastern end of the Costa del Sol. Here, the wide stretches of sand provide crash-spots for weary visitors and water sports for the adrenaline-hungry, while the small rocky coves offer the chance to unwind in peace, with only the sound of the sea to interrupt your snooze in the sun. And surrounding it all are the Sierra Almijara mountains, which have helped to shelter Nerja from high-rise developments that can often be seen elsewhere on the popular Spanish Costas
Nerja is not sleepy though, despite being quieter than many of the neighbouring resorts on this part of the Spanish coast. In fact, the delightful town centre is a hub of life, where Spaniards sup drinks at pavement cafes and visitors take snaps of amazing, cliff-top views and cute, white-washed homes adorned with bright flowers. There are also plenty of cool bars and live-music venues around Nerja, with the majority centred on the wonderfully named Plaza Tutti Frutti.
Daytime activities for visitors looking for an alternative to a day at the beach include taking a tour of the marble promenade called the Balcon de Europa, for views of the coastline and the chance to get your bearings and visiting the Caves of Nerja (Las Cuevas de Nerja), which are well worth seeing on Nerja holidays. The five-million-year-old caves are full of wonder and intrigue and attract visitors year round, as well as for July's International Cave Festival.
When the sun drops behind the mountains, meanwhile, it is time to explore the restaurants of this smart town. Seafood is, of course, a speciality - there's nothing like tucking into fresh fish to the soundtrack of folding waves. But you'll find much more besides, with a good range of international cuisine available.
