Spectacular Views to Enjoy Whilst on Holiday in Nerja
The whitewashed twisting streets of the "old town" are clustered around the palm lined promenade of the Balcon de Europa (Balcony of Europe), perched on a cliff top and providing spectacular views of the coves and bays along this pretty corner of the Costa del Sol. Point the camera in the other direction and you can snap Nerja against the rugged backdrop of the Sierra Almijara mountains and the usually piercing blue skies.
Romantics on a package holiday to Nerja can hire a horse-drawn carriage to explore the prettiest parts of Old Nerja and there are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants to while away the hours. You can certainly find traditional tapas and Spanish dishes but there are also good old English menus to provide the expats with a taste of home. It is also famed as a walker’s paradise as people take a holiday here to enjoy the dramatic scenery and salubrious lifestyle.

Just 3km out of town, Nerja Caves are a local highlight with prehistoric wall paintings – some 20,000 years old – which are transformed for summer concerts in the vast caverns.
