    Hi.
    Great post. We are from Portugal and, Spain is always one of our best destinations. We love the south of Spain but, we never been to Nerja, the most far was to Málaga but, we are planning in the next summer to explore more and Nerja is for sure one of the places we will be. And it’s good to know that there is more to do than only beach.

    Such an inspiring post with informative details about planning a trip to Spain – in particular to Nerja. I must say, I hadn’t even heard about this amazing off-the-beaten-path destination in Spain. The photographs look stunning. Will be sure to include it in our itinerary as we travel around Spain.

    Wow, this is a stunning place and is indeed a gem of Europe. I haven’t heard of Nerja but after reading this post, I am truly convinced that I need to visit this place. There is so much here from beaches to the lost village.

    I had never heard about Nerja and am glad I read your post. While the old world charm of the city is interesting, I would probably visit Nerja for those caves and all the natural beauty of it. And of course, stand on the balcony of Europe and gaze at the sea.

    It’s a great secret indeed because I never heard of it. The cave looks stunning and I would definitely want to visit there and love Spanish food, so I am definitely happy I came through this post.

    I just came back from Spain less than a month ago and was sad that I missed visiting Malaga. I haven’t heard of Nerja specifically but it looks like the perfect kind of beach town. The Nerja Caves look a lot like the ones I visited in Mallorca. Balcón de Europa sounds particularly interesting with that observation deck, the views must be breathtaking!

    Even though I studied abroad in Spain and traveled around the country I have never heard of Nerja. It’s so nice that the local authorities value tourism, yet are also conscious of not prompting over tourism. I think I would love Nerja with the old warm charmed combined with the convenience of a lot of shops and different types of cuisines. The hikes in the area look really nice too.

      that’s a bit surprising, Elizabeth but I guess Spain has so many great summer destinations that it’s really hard to know about all of them 🙂

    So as much as I LOVE SPAIN, and have been multiple times, I have yet to explore the Costa del Sol. Oddly enough, I spent a lot of time across the water in Morocco but I haven’t been to Grenada and definitely not Nerja.
    I actually whoa-ed out loud when I saw the Caves of Nerja. What an amazing find. Darcee would absolutely love seeing the aqueduct too, she has a big fascination with them ever since we went to the U.K.
    For me, the churches and beaches are probably amazing but the Hike to El Cielo looks like “heaven” literally!

    I haven’t been fortunate enough to travel to Spain yet, but glad I found this post so I can add Nerja to my list of places to visit. It looks like there was a lot to do there and also very beautiful scenery all around. Very informative.

    The Nerja Caves and the Chillar River must be a fantastic surrounding to explore near the Balcony of Europe. I haven’t known about this place so thank you so much for writing this great post. We are always subject to learning new and new things.

    My family have been to Nerja a few times and loved it. I love hiking so I’d want to explore Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Mountains. The Nerja Caves look super impressive and El Cielo would be perfect for me. The Aqueduct of El Aguila looks so unique and I love the fact that they are rebuilding the ‘lost’ village of Acebucha.

    Ah!!! This is making my skin tingle! I have ALWAYS wanted to head to Spain, and Barcelona is at the top of my list. But Nerja sounds so delightful, too. I’ve never ever heard of it, but I think I’ll add it to my journey when I get to go (hopefully in 2020!).
