Nerja is probably the nicest, quietest and most authentic little town on Costa Del Sol. Having said that, you’d have more luck spotting Big Foot than a real life Spanish person in Nerja. The upside though – everyone speaks English. It was a nice change from having to do strange hand waves and facial expressions at Cambodian locals, and then finishing all that off with a smile and a thank you in the wrong Asian language. Top marks, Alice, top marks.
Another thing Nerja is great for, is great breakfast views and great breakfast. By breakfast I mean fresh fruit, orange juice and the genius invention of black pudding gazpacho. If you ever need a meal to instantly add two inches to your waistline here one is. Although apparently black pudding is now a health food. I’m not convinced. If you aren’t either, standalone gazpacho is great especially when served with a slice of parma ham on top – I’m looking for a decent place to find some in London. Any suggestions?
