Miles of sandy beaches, great weather and Andalucian charm – no wonder so many love holidays in Nerja. This resort, on the sun-drenced Costa del Sol, enjoys the best of both worlds: The main promenade is lined with palm trees and an array of al fresco restaurants, whilst the Old Town is all cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Many hotels in Nerja are large, seafront affairs, allowing you to get close to the beautiful coast. Swim, relax, or take a boat trip. The area also has plenty of natural beauty to be discovered (including some pretty impressive caves.) Whether you're looking for lively drinks in the evening or a laid-back meal, this resort has got it all. It's easy to see why Nerja holidays are loved by solo travellers, families and couples – all year round.
Nerja holidays tend to be all about the beach (or the beaches there's 16km of them here.) Away from the soft sands and sea, explore inland villages like Frigiliana, packed with traditional charm. Underneath the resort, theres a fascinating network of prehistoric caves, complete with ancient paintings. Golfers love the Costa del Sol for its courses and there are plenty near to Nerja. Great day trips from here include taking the boat to Gibraltar, culture and stunning scenery in Ronda and the mustsee Alhambra Palace at Granada.
Many hotels in Nerja offer entertainment, usually in the form of cabaret and shows. In the resort, youll find a host of late night venues, from karaoke bars to clubs. Still, the resort is large enough for visitors to be able to avoid the nightlife if they wish which is one of the reasons so many couples and families come here. For a much slowerpaced lifestyle, head into the Old Town and pull up a chair at a pavement cafe.
You'll find a vast array of places to eat and drink here. Many hotels in Nerja have their own restaurants. In the resort itself, the main promenade spoils you for choice with a good mix of outdoor restaurants, most of which have a terrace with a view. Don't miss the chance to try tapas and sangria in the atmospheric Old Town.
