Nerja is a side note that many vacationing brits have found. So many retired brits come here, that many of the hotels provide complimentary tea kettles and english breakfast/earl grey teas as a norm. I really love this local. It is all whitewashed houses on the top of a hill that leads down to a fairly tranquil beach. We were there in the off season so there weren’t many people around but restaurants were still open. I am not sure how crowded it gets during the summer months but this was a great escape from Madrid during April and the water, although quite cold was still tolerable for a quick dip in April. We stopped here because hotel deals were affordable here during this time of the off season. And it was totally worth it. Sometime i will make it back to Nerja.
