Nudist Beach in Nerja
No locations found.
Once a small fishing village, the attractive seaside town of Nerja is now one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Costa del Sol. With the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Almijara mountain range and few high rise buildings, the town has managed to retain its natural charm. Primitive paintings found in the famous Nerja Caves show evidence of a long history, and as early as the 10th century Nerja’s silk products were highly prized throughout the Muslim world. The Nerja Caves are supposed to be just one of a vast series of unexplored caves and potholes reaching miles into the surrounding mountains. The cave’s central column, situated in the Cataclysm Hall is the world’s widest natural cave column, and visitors during July should not miss the spellbinding flamenco music festival held in the caves.
Another must see for visitors is the majestic Balcón de Europa, originally a fortified gun battery it is now a picturesque promenade offering wonderful sea and mountain views. Unlike most promenades that stretch along seafronts, this beautiful promenade winds its way along the edge of an impressive cliff top and can be visited as part of a horse drawn carriage tour or on foot. On the outskirts of town is the 19th century aqueduct with it’s multitude of supporting arches spanning a deep gorge. The town’s Old Quarter has narrow streets and plazas lined with cafes and tapas bars. For a rest from the day’s heat the Gardens of Capistrano Playa are well worth a visit.
Nerja is the centre for scuba diving on the Costa del Sol and the beautiful Natural Park of Maro-Cerro Gordo offers a unique diving experience. Aside from scuba diving there is a good selection of other water sports available from the town’s beaches. Naturist’s can spend lazy days on the official nudist beach in Nerja or there are a number of sandy coves and cliffs to explore.
