If you want to feel that you are living in a real and traditional Andalusian town, and yet want to make sure that you have access to the best beaches and nightlife and that you won’t run out of things to do, then Nerja is the place for you! To go looking for a property for sale in Nerja and making it your home is to get the very best Spain has to offer right on your doorstep. Come and see for yourself at the Balcón de Europa, Nerja’s impressive mirador and its most well-known landmark. You will instantly see what the city has to offer and will surely surrender to the charm of a town abuzz with life, but with a very distinct personality that caters to those who are trying to avoid the more traditional touristic hotspots. Within a minimal driving distance of Nerja, you will also find the towns of Frigiliana and Torrox, two villages with very distinct personalities that have also become the top choices for many international customers looking for a property for sale in the area.
Although Nerja is a relatively small town with just 20,000 inhabitants, the number of bars and restaurants that you can find all around is simply impressive. Some of the best Spanish tapas and Andalusian pescaito frito (fried fish) can be found at El Pulguilla, La Marina or El Cangrejo, and you cannot miss Nerja’s annual tapas contest among different bars and restaurants, La Ruta de la Tapa. When the evening approaches, there is nothing like having a relaxed beer with your friends and family in one of the many terraces scattered across the town. And if you won’t settle for anything less than partying for the whole night, head on to the pubs and clubs in Antonio Millon and Tutti Frutti squares, with their many options for music and live entertainment.
Nerja is the place to come to relax with your family in crystalline waters surrounded by impressive cliffs. There are plenty of coves among the rocky coastline where you can have a relaxing beach day snorkelling or scuba diving while avoiding the larger tourist masses. Burriana beach is easily accessible and very family friendly, although it may become more crowded during the summer months. Other options include Playa de Maro, considered by many as one of the best beaches in Spain or el Playazo, one of the largest and further away beaches, ideal to cut yourself off from the world.
If you are interested in something more than just beach and sun, then you cannot miss Cuevas de Nerja, the outstanding limestone caverns in which you can find a joined stalactite-stalagmite of 32 metres height. Nerja is also known for the different cultural festivals (music, dance, theatre, etc) that make their presence felt across the town all year round. If you want more of a cultural life, then unforgettable Granada is only one hour’s drive away, with its impressive Moorish monuments and, in winter time, some of the best ski facilities in Spain. To go looking for a property for sale in Nerja and to make it your home means you can go skiing in the morning and be home in time for an afternoon swim in the sea.
