A seaside resort on Spain’s Costa Del Sol, Nerja is one of Andalucia’s most popular holiday destinations. In addition to its 13km of beautiful beaches, including Calahonda Beach, Carabeo Beach and Carabeillo Beach, there is plenty for tourists to see and do in Nerja. The Balcony of Europe is a promenade offering exceptional views, while El Salvador Church harks back to the 17th century. The Rio Chillar Waterfall is spectacular, while the foothills of the Sierra de Almijarra offer great walking routes. Stop for a drink, a bite to eat and a spot of people watching in Plaza del Carmen, or take a ride in a romantic horse drawn carriage. The kids will love feeding the donkeys at the Nerja Donkey Sanctuary, and foodies can take a class or two at Sticky Fingers Cookery School. This is a great option if you choose a self-catering Nerja villa or apartment, as you can go back to your very own kitchen and try out your new skills.
