Such a beautiful place that has kept its traditional charm, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets and all the modern amenities you could wish for
So what can you do if you are here just for a few days?
I’ll give you 5 options – just read below:
1. Balcón de Europa
Balcón de Europa is that beautiful viewpoint located in the center of Nerja.
One of the most famous places in Andalusia, is situated on a rocky promontory and was formerly a fortress designed to keep out British pirates and privateers.
An idyllic place to take a panoramic photo of the Mediterranean Sea.
2. Cueva de Nerja
Nerja Caves, are one of Spain’s most popular and spectacular historical sites.
The amazing Nerja Caves – Cuevas de Nerja – are a series of huge caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and it’s home to the world’s largest stalagmite -> a 32 metre high column measuring 13 metres by 7 metres at its base.
The Nerja Caves were officially inaugurated on June 12th 1960 and opened to the public.
3.Church of El Salvador
The Church of El Salvador along with the Balcón de Europa plays a central part in many of the yearly events that take place in Nerja.
The church is a lovely island of serenity in center of Nerja and following renovation work in 1997 is well worth popping into to take a quick look.
During Weekend yo can expect to see some weddings and loud happy people!
4. Going to the beach
High on everyone’s wish list when visiting Nerja is a well deserved visit to one of the many beautiful beaches.
Nerja boasts some of the best beaches in the Costa del Sol region. From the long expanses of sandy beaches found on to hidden cove-like beaches, Nerja has it all.
From this one you can also see Balcón de Europa from another angle.
5. Enjoy the amazing Paella
When you are in Spain and you want to eat Paella well, you have options. I mean….you really have options and it’s even hard to choose from.
Our luck was to see this restaurant right near our parking entrance and decided to stay for a coffee…but fell in love with the Paella!
The Restaurant is Marisqueria Hermes and when it comes to Paella they have a 10 from our side!
