Things to do in Acapulco Playa, Spain

The Acapulco Playa complex is in the quiet town of Nerja, and provides basic communal facilities such as a swimming pool, all set amongst a background of palm trees. The great thing about this resort (and Nerja in general) is that it has not succumbed to high-rise development, meaning it is far more aesthetically pleasing than other areas in the region.

Nerja itself is also a much more relaxed location that many other destinations on the Costa del Sol, and has a quaint Old Town that has cobbled streets, quiet cafes and bars and many small shops, making a great area for exploring, away from the tourist crowds.

Just a short walk away from the accommodation is the Balcon de Europa (Balcony of Europe), a promenade of shops, bars, restaurants, street entertainers, historic statures and landmarks - all set in the Old Quarter of town and providing panoramic views out to the sea along its winding paths.

The Nerja Caves are one of Spain’s biggest tourist attractions, and offer a network of underground caverns to explore, with stunning geological features. Those wishing to hit the beach will be spoilt for choice, with the Blue Flag Burriana Beach regarded as one of the very best options, with golden sands and a wide range of water sports to enjoy.

There are two lovely terrace areas with views across the hills to the distant Mediterranean. Very attractive at night with all the candles lit. Nice (smallish) pool ideal for cooling off in and lounging around. Lots of sun loungers and outside furniture. Owner very easy to deal with via internet. Competa itself a gorgeous village. Highly recommended; am planning to go back next year.

I personally would recommend a car in order that you get to experience the region. The owner Jenny has been a delight to deal with. Her directions/instructions from airport to the villa are fantastic - you cannot get lost as she provides a photo of each turn you need to make. Do read the info pack in the villa as it is well put together and offers lots of advice on what to do and see. A must is a visit to Frigiliana. If you travel on a Sunday be advised the 'big name' Supermarkets are closed ! My thanks Jenny to and Carl for sharing your home with us - we hope it will not be too long before we return.
