An Insight in Nerja

Initially the road goes over flat fertile terrain with a few seaside villages and no major resorts. Then, suddenly there is a large beach side hotel. We have arrived at Nerja. From this hotel there is a long basic promenade through the fields at the side of the sea, until we arrive at the developed part of the town and another large beachside hotel. The promenade here has seats, plants, a few cafes and all the things for relaxing in comfort. From here you can walk into Nerja itself and be amazed at the ancient village, mainly intact from the time the Moors left late in the fifteen hundred’s.

From the hotel (the Riu Monica) there are local buses to most parts of the town. Walking towards the town from the hotel you come to a large terrace square with pretty gardens steps and walkways for prams and wheelchairs, there are restaurants and cafes where good food and drinks is served usually outside in the holiday season. It’s a delightful place to take a meal, at any time of day and well into the evening. The square overlooks the sea and there is lovely perfume from the many plants.

 

Going further into Nerja along its narrow streets with there old houses and shops you arrives at the El Salvador Church and its square. This is the hub of the town from where most of the streets begin, several of them winding their way down to the fishermen coves and beaches. A few yards from the square you come to the famous promontory called The Balcon de Europa. It is lined with palm trees and gardens high above the sea and from its balustrades day and night people taking in the views, ahead to open sea and on both sides to the several beaches of Nerja.

The Council has built a walkway over the beaches and rocks, (partially destroyed each winter by the rough seas) leading to the relatively new Burriana beach where at night barbecues are held on the promenade and there are now restaurants too. One can walk there along the very narrow cliff-tops streets. At night the roads are closed to traffic and the restaurants lay out their tables and chairs for the dinners creating a very happy atmosphere.

Going back to the Church square one finds small squares hidden away with shops for books lace etc and also a small Town Hall. Nerja although very old, has something new to view round every bend and corner. One can not be bored with such beauty and variety all around. Any new apartments in Nerja have to conform to strict building laws, ensuring that the surrounding environment is not spoiled, hence the lack of high rise apartments in Nerja. 

There are mainly four large hotels Riu Perla and Riu Monica, Flamenco and Balcon de Europa all with pools and the latter having a lift dawn to the beach. The flamenco is further back into the town. An efficient and friendly tourist information service near to the Balcon has a list of all categories of accommodation including a variety of Villa's, houses and apartments in Nerja.

The river to the west of the town (mostly dry) is the area for the bus station. There are various services included one to Malaga Airport. Also in this area there is a large open area market usually held twice a week where they serve all kind of food clothing and household items. There are Supermarkets everywhere, including a couple oh hypermarkets.

Taxis can be hired on the street or at travel agencies. There coach companies that offer day-tours to the surrender areas e.g. Granada, Almeria and the Alpurias mountings and to the seaside resort of La Herradura, Almunecar and Salobrenia.

There are two more spacial attractions to which the local buses takes you, one is the white village of Frigiliana built into a steep hill side. There are many steps, terraces and balconies everyone overflowing with flowers. The road is winding, shear and is an adventure in itself getting there. The food is good including a dish of a local specialty – goat in almond sauce.The views are superb. As you leave you can buy the locally produced sweet wine.

A second local attraction reached by local buses is the Caves of Nerja at Maro.They are a majestic and awesome sight only discovered about 17 years ago by two little boys playing on the hills. There are so large that a theatre has been built inside and ballet performances take place in the summer. This should not be a quick visit. Plenty of time is needed to walk around this unforgettable treasure of nature. If your holiday coincides with one of the religious celebration days you will probably see a parade in Spanish costumes and on horseback. If you come at Christmas time you will see shops full of artistic decorations plus all the seasonal foods to eat and drink and in most days you will enjoy the warm December sunshine until the sun goes down.
