On a day out we went to Nerja and visited the old town. On our walk we reached The Balcon and loved the atmosphere of thecpeople walking around and admired the view out to sea. Kept well away from the tourist area.

Beautiful square in the centre of town. Views to take your breath away and always someone playing music to sit and pass the time.

The beach down from this is really nice. The restaurants here are very good and very reasonable. You are basically in the centre of Nerja here.
