Nerja perches above a spectacular rugged coastline and is situated on the eastern side of the Costa del Sol at the edge of the province of Granada.
The town is surrounded by the natural beauty of the National Park area of Maro-Cerro Gordo, with wonderful beaches and hidden coves, beneath the backdrop of the Sierra Almijara and Tejeda mountain ranges. The region is subtropical and is unique in Europe because it has an average temperature of 18 and approximately 300 sunny days a year. Many tropical trees and plants therefore thrive here, including Avocadoes, Mangos, Chirimoyas to name but a few..
The main attraction of the old town of Nerja is the beautiful Balcon De Europe, a palm tree lined square flanked by pavement cafes that juts out to sea. It has very cosmopolitan feel enjoyed by street artistes and musicians alike. At the far end of the Balcon there is a circular vantage point with fantastic views of the sea and coastline below. A visit to Nerja is not complete without a visit to the world famous ‘Caves of Nerja’, a large important archaeological site which hosts famous music festivals in the summer. It is the second most visited monument in Spain. For those wishing to explore further afield the area is rich in culture and history and the nearby Moorish villages of Frigiliana and Maro are only a short distance, 4 km, from Nerja. There are many fine examples of Moorish mudejar architecture and the Axarquia area has its own unique cuisine and many local wines. For Golf enthusiasts the nearby Anoreta and Bavaria de Golf course at Velez Malaga have all the requirements for even the most experienced of Golfers. The nearby fishing port of Caleta de Velez Malaga is a great place for marine activities and also Nerja has specialized centres for water sports and scuba diving .
