Nerja is a very popular summer resort located in the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol. Once a small sleepy fishing village, Nerja has become probably the best place for beach holidays in Andalucia.

Nerja boasts unique coastal landscape which you won’t find anywhere else on Costa del Sol. Surrounded by cliffs, Nerja’s extensive beaches are famous for crystal clear water and charming coves that lure all beach-goers to take advantage of the warm sea. Nerja’s coast is probably the best place for scubadiving and snorkelling on Costa del Sol. However, not all the beaches in Nerja are perfect for building sand castles as the sand tends to be coarse and mixed with small pebbles.

The Caves of Nerja, part of Andalusian Geological Heritage, is the most popular attraction of Nerja, although located on the outskirts of the town. A long walk up and down the winding stairs allows a visitor to explore a series of overwhelmingly collosal caverns, home to the world’s largest stalagmite measuring an incredible 32 metes.
