My grandparents live there for a good chunk of the year so it’s always nice to be able to go and visit them. I’ve been going there for almost ten years now and I honestly love it. They stay in a lovely complex made up of small very Spanish looking, white townhouses. Nerja is such a beautiful spot and if you’ve never been I would highly recommend it. It’s the prettiest town made up of small winding streets with the centre of the town leading out onto The Balcon de Europe. It’s a bit of a hidden gem and isn’t at all touristy or commercialised like some popular holiday destinations can be.
Seeing as it is November I didn’t have very high expectations for the weather but I was happily surprised as most days were around 20•C. If you know me you’ll know that me and my very pale skin don’t do well in the heat so this suited me perfectly. It was lovely to be able to catch up with my family and just chill out. Even though it wasn’t a wild holiday I still feel as if I need a slight detox after it- tapas are an everyday essential in Spain and you couldn’t dare have them without a glass of wine or G&T (or so I told myself anyways). We wandered around the back streets, visited the markets and played very competitive cards.
As lovely as it is to get away,it’s always nice to get home too! I’m going to be doing a post on my favourite restaurant in Nerja in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled.
