We had heard that the upcoming place to be was NERJA , a beautiful, genuinely Spanish small town, with a population of about 20,000.
Built on a ledge, it offers a splendid view of the varied surroundings so typical of the area.
Nerja was called Narixa -- rich with water -- and exotic fruits such as chirimoya, kiwi and avocado are grown here.
Known as the "Balcony of the Mediterranean" Nerja is located 52 kilometres east of Malaga.

Revisited Nerja, this time with our good friends Carmen, Stace, Sandra and Isa. While there we visited with Placido, a good friend of theirs who lives in Nerja.

Nerja was our first stop on a Bus Tour organized from our Hotel Bajondillo. There was about 40 of us, including Hans and I. Our bus drove to the parking area of the Nerja Caves, where we got off and headed into the restaurant there. Most of us had a cup of coffee, sitting at the back which had wonderful panoramic views of the Mediterranean.
