    Classic Costa del Sol in Nerja

    A determination to keep things traditional has allowed Nerja to retain plenty of Andalusian charm. As resorts spring up all around it, this one stays low-key and – crucially – low-rise. The upshot is that the cacti-topped coastal hills are covered with charming Nerja holiday rentals with pools and terracotta-tiled roofs, not your usual blocks of condos. It's also nice that fishing boats still pepper the sea off Playa Calahonda and there's still room to laze next to the Med in the various pebble coves. Most of the crowds meet at the Balcony of Europe – a cool marine lookout that was once a 13th-century keep.

    Nerja is for Mediterranean living

    Nerja's top draw is the easy-going vibe of the Med. The whitewashed architecture means there's a sort of "old-world" echo to the place. Get lost and wander the cobbled streets, where shops touting everything from costa del fridge magnets to knock-off sunnies to ice-cream cones may be found. Head down to the seaside walks to pass sizzling Spanish seafood on the grills and sip cold ones to the sunset. After that, the Nerja Caves call on the other side of town, cutting deep underground with their stalactites and stalagmites.

    Nerja – a balcony over the Costa del Sol

    The stunning views of the deep-blue Mediterranean Sea that are on offer from the lookout points of the Balcony of Europe are not to be missed. Most folks begin there, before seeking out the other attractions that surround Nerja holiday rentals. When you come to those, think about hopping to the Aquatropic Water Park around the coast, where the kids can whiz down winding slides while parents laze in bubbling pools. Think about delving in to the Nerja Caves for explorations through subterranean tunnels. Think about going wild in the Sierras de Tejeda, where hiking beneath bald peaks abounds.

    Nerja, where sunshine speaks

    Over 300 days of sun a year certainly means that Nerja is worthy of its place on the Costa del Sol. However, while the winters stay largely dry, it's the summer months that really magnetise the crowds. Families and beach hunters and couples all flock to Nerja holiday rentals between June and August, eager to soak up the unending rays and enjoy warmth of over 30 degrees. That makes spring – in May – and autumn – in September and October –great alternatives if you're keen to avoid the rush.

    On cliffs above the sea in Nerja

    Nerja can charm outdoorsy types with its fusion of mountains and Med. The town itself is perched atop a series of rocky cliffs that tumble straight down to a sea of pearly blue and green. There are several pebble and sand coves in the centre, running from small Playa Calahonda to wave-lapped El Playazo in the west. Go inland, though, and the peaks appear. In fact, much of the city spills over into the Sierras de Tejeda, a vast park where waterfalls babble, and carved dolomite and limestone ridges drop to deep canyons.
