Famous for its spectacular caves, Nerja is one of the most natural and unspoilt resorts in Andalucia.
Much of the old town remains the same as it has for centuries, with winding streets, cobbled squares and whitewashed houses. The famous caves are home to archaeological treasures such as 20,000 year old paintings and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer.
The equally impressive Balcon de Europa, once the site of a Moorish castle, is now a promenade stretching along the cliff edge, offering visitors stunning views of the Mediterranean and the craggy shoreline below. Although Nerja is well known for its beautiful, unspoilt beaches, it is also a mecca for scuba divers, as there are plenty of rocky coves to be found along the shore.
You will find restaurants and bars a plenty in Nerja, and every type of food imaginable can be found here. English cafés sit alongside Indian restaurants and fine dining establishments. Seafood and fresh fish is among the best you will find on the Costa del Sol, and a choice of clubs and late night bars open until the small hours.
