Nerja was not even on our list of places to stay during our 3-week trip to Andalusia but, in the end, it became almost like our home away from home! Mainly known as a Mediterranean beach town that has been practically taken over by British retirees and holiday-makers, it was quiet and relaxing when we were there during the Christmas/New Year period.
Nerja also happened to be the first of our 'no reservations' accommodations, because now that it was just Sue and I to finish the trip, we planned to spend our last eight nights foot-loose and fancy-free! A few nights later, on New Year's Day, it bailed us out again after we failed to find any open accommodations in two other nearby towns.
We had done a great deal of driving by this stage of our trip, so we found Nerja to be a great place to just sit and relax for a bit while watching the waves roll in. Combine that with an inexpensive little hostal, some of our best meals of the trip and chatting with new-found friends in a British-style pub - it was an excellent little place to visit for a few days. My first 'General' tip has a map showing where Nerja is located in the grand scheme of things.
- Pros:Nice waterfront and fairly quiet when we were there
- Cons:Probably too busy with holiday-makers in peak season
- In a nutshell:We enjoyed our relaxing Christmas/New Year stop-overs
By the time we returned to Nerja for the second time, we needed to get some laundry done and figured a town like Nerja... more travel advice
If you have a rental car and some time to spare, you can even make a day-trip to the spectacular inland gorge at Alhama... more travel advice
