Nerja is an absolute Gem of a town on the Costa del sol. With a backdrop of stunning Mountain scenery and the dramatic Mediterranean coastline to the fore.
The sun casting dazzling star like sparkles in the azure sea is a beautiful sight as the waves lap gently on the shore.From the Caves at Maro to the beautiful Balcon de Europa there is so much to see and do here including water sports such as diving, wind surfing, para sailing and the hiring of canoes. In the summer the dreaded banana boat trips can be found on Burianna beach.

Nerja – Discerning Visitors
Nerja is an absolute must for the discerning visitor who expects so much more from their holiday location. The beautiful Balcon De Europa with its stunning arches made even more attractive by the colourful pots of geraniums decorating it.
Although Burriana beach is a favourite with tourists, the lovely beaches of Torrecilla, Playazo and El Chucho which are located to the West of Nerja are well worth a visit. El Chucho is situated between Torrecilla and Playazo beaches and is the last of the beaches to have seaside promenade.
Along Playazo you can find a number of Chiringuitos (beachside restaurants) serving amazing local seafood and paella.
You can find lots of extra general tourist information at the Nerja Today website as well.
