'El Capistrano Village'is ideally situated for the town centre and the sea. 'Burriana', Nerja's largest and most cosmopolitan blue-flag beach is directly below. Here you will find every amenity you want to make your holiday experience memorable. Every kind of bar and restaurants line the beach where beach restaurants barbeque fresh meats, fish, shellfish and vegetables all day and late into the evening. Try one of their giant paellas cooked over an open fire!
The 'Balcon de Europa',situated in the coastal heart of Nerja, is nearby. The whole area comes alive during the evening where (in summer months) the many restaurants spill out onto the streets when the area becomes traffic-free.
Within walking distance from El Capistrano you will find the internationally recognised 'Caves of Nerja', a must see attraction.
A short bus ride into the hills (10 minutes ride) is the white village of Frigiliana. Known as the 'village of three cultures' (Christian, Moorish & Jewish), take a camera !
Other Activities: Walking (beach and mountain), off-road biking, quad biking and cycling, horseriding, snorkeling, jet-skiing and diving are all readily available local
Golf: A very short drive away in the town of Velez Malaga is the 'Baviera' Golf Course (close to the famous 'El Ingenio' shopping centre so, a big day out there if you fancy it! 'Baviera' is a full 18 hole course, well respected and competatively priced but, be aware, you will need your handicap documentation.
The course is well tended and professionally run with a club-house which offers guest players and members alike every amenity.
A fully recognised professional, motorised buggies, trollly carts and caddies - all there for your use.
Ski: The well known Sierra Nevada slopes are but 2 hours drive away (no more) or, early some days (you would need to just check for full details) there is a bus from Nerja to the slopes inland with a reasonable and useable return-time bus.
Basically, the bus runs in order to provide the facility for a days skiing for people from the Nerja area and so, it's designed and timed for you!
The SIerra Nevada slopes are well and professionally run with options to suit every ability level. There are bars, restaurants, shops and all ski-lift facilities up there to ensure a faultless day of real fun!
