Nerja was the find of a monthlong trip to Europe one May. We took a flight from Barcelona to Málaga with the intention of riding a bus along the coast. We rode the bus all the way to the last town Nerja and decided to spend the night there.
We were greeted with a whitewashed town and this gorgeous view from the Balcon De Europa. Winding our way down to the beach, I discovered, much to my delight, sand vs pebbled! The water is warm and calm. I spent two sun-drenched days exploring this tiny town. Spontaneous flamenco breaks out in the bars in the evenings, and I loved the afternoon siestas. Everything is slower here.
