Nerja has such a lovely nightlife - tapas restaurants, rooftop cocktail bars, boutiques that stay open late, and the wonderful Balcon De Europa that juts out into the sea and gives good sunset views.
One evening we went to one of Nerja's newest and upmarket restaurants, Pata Negra 57, where we enjoyed some truly fabulous gastro-tapas.

One of the gorgeous town beaches
Dotted around the town are several smaller beaches, and we hopped around those some days, punctuated by pit-stops for a little Tinto de Verano and fresh seafood tapas. This was our third visit to Nerja, and our second stay in the same apartment overlooking Burriana Beach - last year my husband proposed to me on that beach, so it was nice to be back at that spot. The apartment is just a little one-bed, simply furnished, but it has everything we need, and the terrace is absolutely wonderful. It was back to simplicity after the grandeur of Seville and Granada, where our four days cost about three times what our week in Nerja did! (Wait until you see more photos of the hotels though, they were stunning and honeymoon perfect)

I don't think this is the last time we'll visit Nerja, it's one of my favourite places on Earth, made even more special now because not only was the proposal there, but part of the honeymoon too.
