Within a 12 minutes drive from La Perla de Frigiliana you are right in the centre of bustling Nerja where you will find beautiful beaches and the famous, charming ‘Balcón de Europa’. This promenade atop a cliff offers a magnificent view of the sea, the mountains and the coastline. On clear days it is possible to catch a glimpse of Africa.
The cosy coastal town of Nerja has no less than 16 kilometres of beach, many shops, cafes and restaurants and numerous atmospheric streets. There are plenty of opportunities for water sports and relaxing on one of the many secluded beaches and coves, as found east of the city, in the direction of the beautiful La Herradura. A visit to the caves ‘Cuevas de Nerja’ is definitely worth it. There have been many archaeological finds here and murals up to 20,000 years old were found.
