This pretty Andalusian town is situated on the eastern ridge of the Costa del Sol, just a 50km drive outside of Malaga. The town is famous for its dramatic Maro cliffs, which harbor secluded coves and beautiful beaches like the famous Blue Flag Burriana Beach. The beach lends itself to a range of active holiday water sports including windsurfing, sailing and diving.
Having worked up an appetite, you’ll find plenty of waterfront eateries to tempt all palates. Fish is definitely the dish of the day here and it’s well worth sampling the low cost ‘just netted’ local seafood. Following a good feed, a stroll through the old town is advised. Nerja’s medieval center is steeped in history, evidence of which can be seen at the Balcón de Europa, which dates back to 1487. The winding cobbled streets of the old town quarters are the perfect place to invest in local produce like sweet fruity wine, olive oil and honey.
