I went to Nerja for a month with 2 mates and it was the best time ever! Definitley going back. Awesome place with people of all nationalities and ages. Great nightlife and fantastic beaches!!
Just in Nerja, beautiful town, nice people, driving a pain in the ARS, scooters ripping by you. Wonderful town to explore on foot, shopping nice, views spectacular, food Spanish, the bread (pan) long crusty hard loafs baked locally in small bakeries along the streets, their sweets are pretty, but not loaded with much flavor or sugar. The locals are nice, and most are eager to give you infomration upon request, but you bettere brush up on your Spanish. I would definitly return.
Well I went to Nerja with two friends and all I can say it was bloody fantastic!! It had a real Spanish feel to it, we met some locals and they showed us round and well I would really recommend anyone to pay Nerja a visit. A place for all ages a really great place!!
I went to Nerja for New Year and what a fantastic place. It's no good for single sex groups, but couples and older people it's perfect. I stayed on the balcony and the surroundings are very clean and lots of good restaurants.
Been going to Nerja since i was 3...now 17! Fab place for people of all ages!
Nice town but very noisy with moterbikes and dog dirt on the pavement.
Great town with international appeal. Lots of beaches and good nightlife.
Nerja is a coastal town in the province of Malaga, Andalusia, Spain, and part of the Costa del Sol. Costa del Sol means “Coast of the Sun” in Spanish and is a region in Southern Spain that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Costa del Sol is a long stretch of towns and cities that has a main tourism industry dedicated to beaches and seaside activities.
The name of Nerja comes from the Arabic word “nerixa,” meaning “source of abundance.” Like all of Southern Spain, Nerja is heavily influenced by the Muslim and Arab conquerors and settlers during the medieval period. Nerja has a long history, dating to the Neolithic and Paleolithic ages where evidences of Neanderthal and other human remains and settlement were found in various places. The most prominent of this settlement was the Nerja Caves.
Nerja Caves or the Caves or Nerja are a series of caverns in Nerja. The Caves or Nerja is one of the most well-known tourist attraction in Andalusia and all of Spain. Because of its stalactite and stalagmite formations that rise into a spacious natural amphitheater, the Caves of Nerja is a national geological treasure. The Caves of Nerja also feature prehistoric cave paintings.
Aside from the Caves of Nerja, Nerja is also famous for its impressively preserved Roman aqueduct. The Aqueduct of Nerja dates back to the Roman conquest and settlement of Andalusia. Various people have made Nerja their home, including the southern Iberian tribes, Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Visigoths, and the subsequent Christian Reconquista and various Kingdoms of Spain.
Throughout the town, Baroque and medieval structures like churches and castles can be found in the town; the influences of various cultures are evident in the city layout, the streets, the houses, villas, and mansions. Traditionally, Nerja is an agricultural haven that produces tropical and semi-tropical products like sugar cane, mango, papaya, avocado, and other fruits. In modern times, Nerja has transformed into a tourist destination. Nerja is also famous for its various stretches of beaches. Because of its rocky edges, some of the resorts, Nerja hostels, and town centers are built upon the rocky cliffs. These rocky cliffs then form enclaves of beaches with fine white sand and clear blue waters. Nerja hostels can be found everywhere in the city and vary in shape, location, and rate. Nerja hostels range from very luxurious hostels to simple ones.
