Spanish Courses in Nerja at Escuela de Idiomas Nerja
Nerja, a small town of 20,000 people 50 km. east of Malaga, has been less affected by the commercial development of other Costa del Sol resorts, despite the attractiveness of its setting against the deep blue Mediterranean. This typical Andalusian town of white walls has maintained an appealing old quarter, some fine beaches, and lively night-life, all with a minimum of hype and glare. Nothing can cast a shadow on the coast’s major attraction — abundant sunlight that gives the region four months of summer and eight months of spring per year, and also contributes to the friendliness of the local people.
The town’s focal point is the “Balcon de Europa,” a cliff-top promenade that looks out over 14 km. of coastline. At night, the terrace becomes a lively “paseo” where you can watch and be watched. Sidewalk cafes border the promenade. Below the cliff are a series of small coves and long beaches mostly of gravel and coarse sand. Nerja can be reached by frequent buses from Malaga (there are 10 each day; the trip lasts 1 1/2 hr.) Granada is just 1 1/2 hours away, Morocco 4 hours, Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos, 2 hours.
