Visiting Nerja is going into a small paradise on the Costa del Sol. The Maro Cerro Gordo Natural Site and 15 spectacular beaches will be in charge of welcoming the visitor to this white viewpoint of the Mediterranean. A luminous town flanked by its Sierra de Almijara with heights of up to 1,500 meters that descend to the sea.
Visitors will be attracted by the relaxed lifestyle and stunning sunny landscapes. Of obligatory visit there are emblematic places as the Balcony of Europe and the Caves of Nerja. These last ones of great historical and cultural interest thanks to the conservation of numerous fossils, tools and paintings that their inhabitants have left us as a legacy since approximately 25,000 years ago.
Refuge of the worldly noise
Lovers of nature activities will find in Nerja a destination to discover. A few meters away you can enjoy a wide range of possibilities to escape the frenetic pace of the city. Knowing the heart of the Mediterranean through the Senda Litoral (path) and water activities such as diving and kayaking, or entering high mountains by foot or horse routes are only a small sample.
Thanks to its privileged location, Nerja enjoys a subtropical climate that gives residents and visitors delicacies such as avocado, mango or custard apple, a delight for the senses. Its gastronomy mixes with charm, sea and mountain products with dishes such as Ajocolorao, Burriana sea bream or Boniatos with cane honey. All this without forgetting the Pescaíto Frito and the Paella, two stars of the gastronomy of the Costa del Sol to which every visitor who boasts must succumb.
