It was a very quiet village

We first visited this white village, about 2 miles up the road from Nerja,close to the Caves, in the early 90s.
It was an attractive little village, seemed to be thriving and on the "Up".
There were a couple of recommended restaurants there but on our winter visits - always closed. We found there opening hours erratic in late Sept/early Oct. too so never got to sample them.
We enjoyed stopping off here for a walk on the breezy "promenade" and a cup of coffee in one of the bars.
The village was surrounded by small allotments - going right down to the edge of the cliff and to the sea in places . Each had a small shed as tool store and shelter from mid-day sun durieng siesta time.

Over the years we watched ithe village grow like Topsy - new apartment blocks, refurbished and new hotels.
But it a pretty little place and has become a popular "suburb" of Nerja.
