Nerja is a small, tranquil coastal town belonging to la Costa del Sol in Málaga.
Its very corners are famous thanks to a television series from the 80s called Verano Azul, which displayed the towns features thoroughly and realistically. In fact, many of the tourist routes that the town offers allude to this series, and organized tours show the places of the filming.
The best known location is the Balcon de Europa, with its añones from which one can contemplate the well known beach of Calahonda practically a cove, it is accessed through an opening at the end of Puerta del Mar street. To the other side of the Balcon de Europa is the beach of the Caletilla.
Also highly regarded is Burriana beach, which, surrounded as it is by comforts and urbanizations, is a concentration of affluent tourism.
There are a few rustic beaches like Chicho, Palyazo, and Cañuelo: more isolated, they are only moderately frequented in summer.
Another site to enjoy is Cala del Pino, where large rocks separate a sandy cove into two different beach sections, situated next to a beautiful pine grove.
Although the town seems small, there are many fascinating sites to visit in Nejra: the famous caves (with some of the largest formations of stalagmites and stalactites yet found), the Museum of Fleas, the paths where donkeys pull buggies, and the cliffs of Maro.
The main road centers on the Plaza TutiFruti, where the best offerings for nocturnal leisure are found, while on the beach of Torrecilla is a multitude of chiringuitos open until daybreak.
