Nerja Holidays

Nerja, a seaside resort on the Costa del Sol, in the region of Andalucia, Spain has preserved its low-rise village charm, despite the arrival of tourism and proliferation of souvenir shops and day trippers. Nerja is the first resort town east of Malaga not dominated by ugly high-rise hotels. Behind the city are the attractive foothills of the ... Read more
Sierra Almijara mountains. In town visitors enjoy strolling the beautiful Balcón de Europa, a palm-lined promontory built on the foundations of an old fort with panoramic views of the sea. Beside the many beaches, The Caves are the main tourist attraction.

Weather

The best months to head to Andalucia are in the fall (October and November) and spring (April and May) when the weather is at its finest. Autumn is typically quieter than spring because of the Semana Santa ... Read more
(Holy Week) and Easter. Summers are swelteringly hot in most areas (97, or 36, in Seville) though the coast and the highlands are a bit more tolerable. Winters are cooler and wet with snow dusting the Sierra Nevada and rain hitting the Sierra de Grazalema; however, other parts of the province are more temperate, and it’s not unusual to see sunbathers and people swimming in the sea in February.

The next town along from Torrox, has a market every Tuesday, loads of places to sit and eat tapas, has a plaza full of nite time bars and clubs for anyone who loves the nightlife! Tons of shops to browse around. And the most focal point is the Balcon De Europa, a balcony that overs looks the sea. Has the Wally train which takes your around the town viewing all the sites or a horse and cart ride.

Very nice place for a sun holiday. We visited with small children and that was no problem. Beautiful views from the "terrace of Europe". Quite a large British population here, by the way, you don't need a lot of Spanish to get around here.

I love Nerja.

The paella and seafood. Oh man, it is a phenomenon. Cooked on a beach merendero, fresh from the sea, not 30 meters from the water! Words cannot describe.

The whitewashed facade with terra cotta roofs. The pebble beaches, the cobblestones. The pebblestone step roads! it's almost too fantastic.

Get your sangria on sitting at an outdoor bar on the paseo/Balcón de Europa and melt into the world.

Best off season. It can get a little crowded at the height of the summer.

A 2 hr drive from Granada, but the town has loads to offer. Bigger than it appears, boulders to hike amongst on the coast, peaceful sand beaches, and relaxation await you. Quite the small, coastal city!
