El Tuhillo, 55km along the Spanish coast from the popular resort of Malaga, offers a great alternative to the bustling summer resort. Enjoying access to the same beautiful stretches of beach and with plenty of activities easily accessed from self-catering accommodation, El Tuhillo offers a more relaxing destination, popular with couples and families.

Things to do in El Tuhillo, Spain

El Tuhillo is a great option for those looking to spend their summer holiday in Nerja, with self-catering accommodation only a short walk to the sandy beach. Here holidaymakers can enjoy a variety of water sports, or simply relax and enjoy the sunshine.

The area around El Tuhillo is somewhat of a walker’s paradise, with fantastic walks along the coast from which to admire the sunrise/sunset, or more challenging hikes up into the mountains of Frigiliana above Nerja.

The town centre of Nerja is just a scenic 7-minute walk from El Tuhillo, and is a great place to spend the day, wandering around the old winding streets, absorbing the ambience of ‘Old World’ Spain.

The town is also awash with options for eating and drinking, with plenty of restaurants and sidewalk cafes offering local tapas dishes and fantastic local wines. Many of these also remain open late into the evening, with Spanish music and dancing to keep visitors entertained into the wee hours.

El Tuhillo also has several shops selling traditional Spanish leather goods, as well as a wide range of handcrafted souvenirs, while a trip into Nerja town centre also offers several high-class boutiques as well as high street fashion shops.

The town of Granada is less than an hour’s drive from El Tuhillo, which lies at the foot of the mountains in the Sierra Nevada National Park, of which beautiful views can be had along the scenic drive to the city. The main draw in the city is the Alhambra, a Moorish citadel which is a significant cultural site within Islamic history, although there are also plenty of other historical palaces and churches likely to be of interest to the visitor.

          Fabulous location and very good apartment

          4 of 5
          We had a week's stay in the apartment in Tuhillo. The location is excellent, just a short walk into Nerja and to the Balcon and the other way to the beach. The walk to and from the beach is via a steepish hill. The apartment was exactly as described. The view out across the garden and sea was lovely and we benefited from the Southerly facing balcony by having the sun more or less all day. The apartment was well equipped, very clean and provided free wifi which wasn't advertised but was available. There were also beach mats and a sun umbrella for guests use. Overall a super apartment which was very well equipped. The only reasons for the 4 star rather than the 5 are - some evidence of damp in one of the bedrooms. The 2nd double bedroom is very small, the bed is only a small double and the mattress needs replacing. One final thing which is not a criticism is that British guests just need to be aware there are no UK TV channels available on the satellite TV with the exception of BBC World News.
