Nerja is a pretty place, with building restrictions that have prevented the high-rise skyline that dominates much of the coast. Instead it has whitewashed houses, and in the old quarter these are particularly pretty with their wrought-iron work balconies and flowers spilling out of pots. The town has inevitably sprawled out somewhat with new residential developments, but the town centre retains a historic feel. Nerja has some famous caves just outside it, and that draws a lot of tourists to the area. We've never been! We're much more interested in the amazing food, the gorgeous beaches, the laid back atmosphere and the vast quantities of reasonably priced Spanish wine available.
