Nerja - Spain



Learn Spanish in Spain


Nerja – The coast around Nerja is known as the Costa Tropical. It is a description that fits very well. Nerja is located between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.

Nerja really has a subtropical climate. The average temperatures in Nerja are all year around about 2 degrees Celsius above the temperature of the Costa del Sol.

Along the Costa Tropical and especially in Nerja subtropical plants that can not tolerate the climate elsewhere in Spain and Europe are grown. Also the water resources in Nerja are large comparing to other places in the south of Spain. This allows the cultivation of the most exotic fruits and vegetables. 

The inhabitants in Nerja are just a little more than 25 000, but the population is growing very fast. During the summer months the 14 kilometers of coastline in Nerja is the holiday home to many tourists. 


One of the most famous images of Nerja is the “Balcon de Europa”. Balcon de Europa is a panoramic view point with magnificent views over the Mediterranean Sea. On clear days one can see the African coast. The viewpoint is located in Nerja's town Center. On both sides, there are nice small beaches and many charming restaurants.

Arab architecture can be seen in the old city Center of Nerja. Low white Andalusian buildings and many narrow streets which have been converted into pedestrian walking lanes streets gives Nerja the typical south Spanish atmosphere

A must in Nerja is a visit to the huge caves that was discovered in 1959. The enormous stalactites hanging from the ceiling and stalagmites that rise from the floor has been formed for about 200 million years. It has been shown that the caves were inhabited more than 20 000 years ago. The cave is used for performances during the summer. In the largest “room” in the cave, where opera concerts and ballets are shown, the distance from the floor to the ceiling is 130 meters and 600 spectators can be seated. The Nerja cave is visited by half a million tourists every year.
