Once a sleepy fishing village, Nerja is one of the few places to have kept its traditional charm, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets and all the modern amenities you could hope for.  Geographically speaking, you couldn't hope for a better location. Nerja sits at the mouth of the Chillar River and is wedged in between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of the Sierras de Tejeda.

The name “Nerja” is derived from the word “narixa”, an Arabic term which translates to “bountiful spring.” The abundance of water in this area gives Nerja a tropical feel, a lushness that contributed to its significance in the sugar cane industry in the early 20th century. 

One of the most popular outings in Málaga are the Nerja caves, which were discovered in 1959, when a handful of boys from Maro found it by chance. They had inadvertently stumbled on one of the most important geological finds of our era. The Nerja caves are home to the world's largest column, it has held its place in the Guinness Book of Records since 1989 and the world’s oldest Neanderthal cave paintings - they were recently dated as being over 10,000 years older than the previous record holder. The recent discovery of Roman pottery, Moorish coins, and the presence of unusual biodiversity have all confirmed that discoveries in the Nerja Caves are seemingly limitless and subject to incredible global speculation. The caves are roughly five kilometres in length and have several sections open to the public, visiting them makes a fascinating day out for the whole family. 

If you are in Nerja,  you can’t miss the Balcón de Europa, Nerja's most famous landmark and the focal point for most of the town's activities. 
A walk along the Balcón de Europa offers spectacular panoramic views of the whole coast. 

The village of Frigiliana is situated six-kilometres north of Nerja and just over fifty kilometres from Málaga. Villages on the Costa del Sol don’t come much more picturesque than Frigiliana. This exceptionally beautiful white-washed village is truly one of a kind. A maze of cobbled streets, with meticulously maintained whitewashed houses, that provide a stunning contrast against the blue skies and red slate roofs. The colourful plant pots brimming with bougainvillaea, lavender and jasmine all add an extra dash of colour to this enchanting scene.
