Nerja, (originally named Narixa, meaning ‘rich in water’), has many legends and stories which have been passed by word of mouth across the centuries, stemming from romance between the sun, the moon and the sea. The sea has always been – and still remains – the soul of the town. Thousands of visitors have chosen Nerja as their idyll. Clean, shingle beaches, the charisma of the people, the gentle way of life and traditionally rich Andalucian culture. Nerja offers many beaches or holidaymakers and these include El Playazo, La Torrecilla, El Salon, Calahonda, El Chorillo, and Burriana. In total, they cover 16 km of fine sand and clear waters.

First discovered in 1959, the Caves or Nerja have become one of the most visited because of holidays and attractions in Andalucia and each summer hosts a spectacular festival of music and dance. Nestling in the mountains above Nerja is the beautiful whitewashed village of Frigiliana, which is well worth the visit. There are lots of little craft shops selling local produce, including the well-known Frigiliana wine. Just a 5-minute drive from Nerja can be found Torrox Pueblo. With great views over the Mediterranean Sea, Torrox is a fantastic whitewashed village that clings to the hillside.

Nerja is only two hours drive from the Sierra Nevada Europe’s most Southerly Ski resort so you can be on the beach for the morning, and skiing in the afternoon! The Sierra Nevada towers above the historic town of Granada where the Alhambra Palace is a Mecca for visitors all year round. 

Nerja is a fantastic location for people looking for property including luxury villas, beachside apartments and traditional whitewashed townhouses. Originally a fishing town, Nerja has always been a popular holiday location, but the last few years have seen a huge interest in property purchases. The popularity of Nerja continues to increase and its no real surprise considering its fantastic location on the Costa del Sol.
