The balcony of Europe

Nerja is most famous for the Balcón de Europa, a clifftop promenade with scenery right across the Med. It’s finished with cafés and restaurants, and also plays host to festivals and shows. You can see along the town’s handful of sandy coves and the towering Sierra Almijara Mountains nearby.

Beach days, old town nights

Secure yourself a spot along the main beach, El Playazo, or hit the trio of small stretches to the east great for snorkelling. A short walk from the water is the quaint old town, where traditional Andalusian life is on show, complete with narrow streets and whitewashed houses.

Exploring Andalusia

You’re in a great spot to see some of Andalusia’s most famous cities and sights. It’s around about an hour’s drive to Málaga, as well as to the historic town of Granada, known for its Moorish architecture. There’s Ronda too, a striking town that spans the El Tajo canyon.
