Luxury Nerja Holidays

Cliff-top strolls and Andalucian charm

Nerja

Nerja's appeal lies in its traditional, small-town charm, feeling a little like an authentic gem compared to some of the Costa del Sol's more modern resorts. Wrapped in lush, rugged countryside and scattered with historic sites, Nerja is a firm favourite with visitors curious about culture as well as beaches.

Set into the dramatic rocky coast is the Balcón de Europa, the focal point of the town that provides spectacular views across the coast. There are plenty of places to eat and drink around the viewpoint, where you can soak up the sights and the atmosphere.

Nerja is also famous across Spain for the mysterious Cuevas de Nerja – vast caves dating back millennia and filled with haunting rock formations. When you're ready to take a breather, you can have your pick of beaches, from big stretches of sand to little coves complete with chiringuitos (tiny beach cafés serving cold drinks and snacks).

Don’t miss the Nerja Caves just outside of town - they cover a huge surface area and have some of the largest stalactites in Europe.

When to go

With a name that translates as the Sunshine Coast, it’s no surprise that this slice of Spain gets over 300 days of sun a year. Things start to heat up in the spring, with temperatures nudging the 20s, while in the height of summer, the mercury often tops 30°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
