Nerja is located on the eastern Costa del Sol about 50 km from Malaga, between the Sierra Almijara mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea.
It is a beautiful coastal town surrounded by mountains and romantic Bays. In addition to the beautiful beaches, visitors can expect an excellent hospitality.
The old town, with its lime-white houses, has retained its typical Andalusian style up to today.
The Balcon de Europa is a cliff protruding over the sea . It is one of the most popular places for many visitors, with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea and in the immediate vicinity of the Tourist Information Centre Nerja. During the day, you can enjoy panoramic views of the coastlines and in the evening the crafts of numerous artists .
The surrounding streets of the old town are mostly car-free.
In the small alleys there are numerous restaurants, flamenco bars and many small shops. Fish and seafood are inexpensive and often preserved in beach restaurants – an ancient tradition of the pearl of the Costa del Sol.
Some of the typical dishes are: charcoal grilled sardines on the spiby, Ajoblanco (a refreshing garlic soup), migas (oil-fried breadcrumbs with sausage pieces), tortitas de bacalao (salty tarts with cod) and De La Doncella (red mule). Due to the large number of foreign residents and businesses, of course, you will find a wide range of other culinary offers.
Excursions include the stalactite cave in Nerja, the white villages of Frigiliana, Competa and the cities of Malaga, Marbella, Granada, Ronda and much more.
