Miles of coastline
Nerja is renowned for its stunning beaches, from long golden stretches to small sandy coves. There’s around nine kilometres of coastline in total so if your ideal holiday is lazing in the sun on a gorgeous beach, then you’ll be spoilt for choice in Nerja, you could spend every day on a different stretch.
Holidays to Nerja aren’t short of things to see and do. The historic Nerja Caves offers something for everyone. History buffs will love getting to know the story behind the caves from its early inhabitants to its discovery and if you’re not into the history side of things then they’re still a magnificent sight to look at. Speaking of magnificent sights, if you love beautiful views, head to the Balcon de Europa for panoramic views out to the Mediterranean Sea and beyond.
Asides from the beautiful beaches and stunning sights, there’s plenty to do for families too. Nerja is close to two waterparks so you could spend a day at each of them if you have a family that loves the thrills of shooting down slides and splashing around in the water. In the evenings you can then head to the lively Plaza Tutti Frutti for a meal with live music playing in the background. If you’re holidaying with older kids then you can grab a drink at one of the many bars afterwards.
