Is There Anything to See in Nerja, Spain?, Nerja, Spain (B)

Spain’s Costa del Sol is famed for its scenic coastline and beautiful sand beaches. As part of Andalusia, it’s an easy place to include on an itinerary that takes you through the intoxicating south of Spain. The most popular places to visit along the Costa del Sol are Malaga and Marbella, but after that it’s surely the resort town of Nerja. During my trip to Andalusia, visiting Nerja was my brief coastal detour between cities like Seville and Ronda. Since I’m not such a big beach person, Andalusia’s historic cities tended to be what I was most interested in. Still, I wanted to see what the coast and beaches here were like and Nerja seemed to fit the bill. Thing is, I wasn’t sure that Nerja had anything more to offer other than beaches. If you’ve been wondering if there’s anything else to see in Nerja, then this article ought to have you covered.

Ok, so before we get to the other attractions of Nerja, let’s quickly talk beaches. With beaches in Nerja, you’re spoilt for choice. Around every bend of the town’s coast you’ll find a beach wedged between cliffs. They come in all shapes and sizes too, from the compact Playa de la Calahonda to the nice stretch of sand at Burriana Beach. There’s enough choice here that you can switch it up each day, with maybe Carabeo Beach one day and Playa el Salón the next. One of the nicest I think is Playa Torrecilla, although others are closer to the very centre of town. If all you want out of visiting Nerja is beach time, then you’re in luck. You’ll find that there are many places to stay in Nerja by the beach, across all budgets. Nerja isn’t a big town either, so even a block or two back puts you nearby but also squarely in the middle of town. For beachgoers, you really don’t need to read any further, but those looking to go sightseeing, here’s what else there is to do in Nerja. ......
