Nerja is an old fishing village that has now turned into a popular summer tourist destination on the Costa del Sol of Spain. Some of the standout features of this superb resort include endless beaches, whitewashed houses, narrow streets, amazing sea views and a stunning backdrop of the Sierra de Almijara mountain range. It is the ideal holiday hotspot for families, couples and friends.
Budget holidays to Nerja are very readily available and the resort can be reached from most regional airports. The resort itself is located around an hour drive away from Malaga airport.

Direct flights to this region tend to be around 3 hours long from most airports in the UK.
Nerja is at its best from spring until autumn. Temperatures reach the high 20s and sometimes into the low 30s throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring but the resort definitely doesn’t see the same level of activity and excitement during the cooler months. The peak tourist season is during the summer and this is also when the region’s beaches are at their best. However, there are some good walking routes in the Sierra de Almijara mountain range that are best done in comfortable daytime temperatures.
The most popular activity in Nerja is to relax on one of the many sandy beaches that the resort has to offer. Many of these places are sheltered, spacious, have coves to explore and calm waters to swim in - the perfect combination for plenty of long beach days! Away from the beach there is also plenty to see and do. A day-trip to the gorgeous village of Frigiliana is always worth doing due to its proximity to Nerja. You will find narrow streets with whitewashed houses that resemble the very best of both Greek and Spanish influence. Hiking in the hills, relaxing in the town centre and enjoying yourself in the bars are just some of the other best activities in this place.
Nerja has a wide selection of accommodation options to offer visitors. Many of the budget hotels are located by the beach and provide easy access to and from there. There are also more luxurious hotels as well as villas and apartments. Dining out in Nerja is certainly an experience in itself with cute cafes, restaurants that serve a variety of cuisines from all over the world, traditional tapas bars and venues with breathtaking views out to sea. Simply take your pick!
