About Nerja

Once a sleepy fishing village, the town offers a wide range of activities, restaurants, shops and bars that you would expect for a great holiday.

Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of beaches and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing.


Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, the town has, fortunately, managed to avoid being blighted by concrete high-rise developments associated with other areas of the Spanish coast. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with geraniums, and developments are mainly Spanish style, low rise apartment and villa complexes.
