Nerja is a coastal town in the province of Málaga. It is a popular destination for tourists mainly because of its caves but it also has several fine beaches set amidst charming coves beneath steep cliffs.


The Balcón de Europa is a nice place to visit. It is in the centre of the old town and is a mirador or viewpoint that provides stunning views along the coastline.

The caves are about five million years old and were formed by rainwater seeping through the cracks and fissures in the rock, eroding the layers below to produce cavities and hollow channels. Over a long period the cavities got larger creating enormous chambers. The dripping water also formed stalactites and stalagmites.
