Nerja, often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Costa del Sol’, is 45 minutes by car or 1 hour to 1 hour 45 minutes by bus from Málaga airport. The resort is sheltered by the Sierra Almijara, Tejeda and Alhama mountains, giving it a unique and mild climate and making it a great place to visit at any time of year.

The idea of this ‘potted guide’ is to, hopefully, cover most topics relating to the town and provide as much useful information as possible. It will be continually updated and expanded.

Just Be Aware

To the eternal shame of all involved, and despite over four decades of talk, Nerja still does not have a functioning water treatment plant, all waste being pumped out to sea off Burriana and El Chucho beaches. This does mean that, if you are unlucky or the prevailing sea and weather conditions are unfavourable, particularly in the long summer season when the population triples, there is the possibility that you could witness the ‘problem’. It is well documented on Tripadvisor and Facebook. However, the beaches themselves are clean, well maintained and safe.
