Welcome to Nerjanow, your website for
Nerja.The Balcon de Europa at the heart of Nerja The name Nerja comes from the moorish word for the village “Narixa” which means abundance of water, but the abundance is not through rain!
Nerja has 300 days of sunshine which makes it a great all year round destination. Nerja is still nearer to the real Spain, and just a few minutes walk from the Town centre and you can still occasionally see Oxen pulling a plough, and just a few more minutes drive away is some of the most magnificent scenery to be seen anywhere.  Although Nerja has succumbed to tourism it has managed to keep a lot of it’s character, particularly the old part of town with narrow (some still cobbled) streets and loads of great Tapas Bars.  Nerja is less than two hours drive from the Sierra Nevada (Europe’s most Southerly Ski resort) so you can be on the beach for the morning, and skiing in the afternoon!

A message from The Costa Animal Society ( CAS):
Animal Rights Laws
As a result of the rising number of rescue calls which the Costa Animal Society (CAS) has already received this year, the charity must emphasize that it is a criminal offence to abandon or abuse a dog or cat. 

In 2003, the Junta de Andalucía enacted a set of basic animal rights laws which have gone a long way to improve the care of animals on the Costa but have not solved the problem of pets being left behind when their owners return to home. 

The following is a short list of what is covered by the 2003 animal rights laws so anyone grossly violating these obligations should be reported to the Seprona branch of the Guardia Civil. 

But remember, these laws follow common sense and certainly only the most serious offenders will face the toughest punishment.

Obligations – Owners of animals must care for their animals as indicated below:

1. In good hygienic sanitary conditions with proper lodging
2. Provide food, water, vaccinations and treatment for the health of the animal
3. Microchip at three months of age
4. Dogs should always be in the view of their owners in public areas
5. Owners must dispose of excrement left by their animals in public places

Prohibitions:
Fines
1. Maltreatment or physical abuse of animals         75 – 30,000 €
2. Abandonment of an animal                2,000 – 30,000 €
3. Keeping an animal tied up permanently        500 –   3,000 €
4. Dog/Rooster fighting                    2,000 – 30,000 €
5. Leaving poison in public places                2,000 – 30,000 €
Preparing your pet for return to the UK.

Preparing your pet for return to the UK

In recent years, the Pet Travel Scheme in Britain has been streamlined to make it quicker and easier to move back to the UK with your beloved dogs and cats.  

The six month quarantine has been replaced with a short 21 day waiting period, which can be done either in your own home or at a boarding kennels.  If you cannot wait with your animal for the full 21 days, contact your local kennel or pet transport company for advice.  

The first step is to make sure your pet has a microchip implanted by your vet and that a Pet Passport is issued.  Either on the same day or anytime after the microchip is done, your animal needs to be fully vaccinated against rabies and then wait 21 days before it can travel to the United Kingdom.  

Finally, canines must be wormed for more than 24 hours but no longer than five days before entering Britain and this must be documented in the Pet Passport by a vet.  There is currently no worming requirement for felines.  

Once all of this is completed make sure to keep the rabies vaccinations up to date in the Pet Passport so that your doggie or moggie can travel back and forth to the UK whenever you wish.

The new design (2 old pipes with sand and gravel) of the  footbridge over the Rio Chillar continues to impress with the failure of it’s design.
This continues a long tradition of bad design for this footbridge that was washed away during the really bad storm a few years back.
The original (1 old pipe with sand and gravel ) design failed magnificently for a couple of years before being replaced with the new one.  LOL

A note from The Phoenix Club:
“We have commenced their Christmas collection of food for Los  Angeles de Axarquia and La Cruz Roja, the Spanish Red Cross, Axarquia.
The Angels of Axarquia feed families in need at breakfast and in the  evening, at their soup kitchen just outside the indoor market in Torre del  Mar.  The families who queue for food grow every day and they need our help.
La Cruz Roja help families in the whole of our region and they too are  finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the demand. If you can help by donating any dry foodstuffs, (preferably in twos which  makes it easier to share out) we would be most grateful.  Pulses, rice,  pastas, oils, all help towards filling a basket of food for these families,  especially at Christmas.
Let us do our bit to help and be generous to those less fortunate than  ourselves.

We will continue to collect food until the 17th December when we will  invite both local charities to come in and collect our gift to them.”

**If anyone would like help with transport for donated food please contact me (Neville) I would be more than happy to help. 678 501 473 admin@nerjanow.com

Dont you love September in Nerja?
It is my favourite month, still baking hot during the day but cooler in the mornings and evenings, most of the crowds of August are gone, parking is easier and the holiday visitors have changed from lots of families with young children to an older crowd mainly of singles and couples. A great time to explore Spain from as walking is back on the agenda if you time it to miss the still mad heat of the afternoon. September is also the start of the gorgeous sunset season and the time for spaceship like clouds.
I love it :)

A slightly belated big thank you to Les and Niall and of course Frigiliana town hall for a great night on Saturday. A bit of an early start with a wander around Friggy then up to the football stadium just in time to see local musician Lee Townsend entertaining the audience before Mama Paula Blues Band and then the Bootleg Beatles.
Too much fun, too much drink, too much dancing, so all in all a jolly good night.
I hope that we will be seeing more events from Les & Niall in the future…well done :)

News that the Boatyard bar will close at the end of September after 5 years that included some great live music, Jazz & Jam sessions, some fun charity nights and a couple of Battle of the bands days means somewhat the end of an era.

A bit of a ride out yesterday along the old coast road to Salobrena for a stroll along the sea front where even though it was still quite early the beach was already busy and like anywhere this time of year parking was a bit difficult.

Salobrena

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

back on the road again and on to Rules reservoir which is still pretty much full
rules

 

 

 

 

 

Up through Orgiva to Lanjaron for something to eat and drink. The main street has quite a few bars and restaurants and a surprising amount of Hotels all in one area. The public swimming pool was in full swing and the town was about to start a childrens fiesta in the park that evening and  readings of Federico García Lorca were also being held in one of the hotels as well. Lanjaron als0 celebrates a 3 cultures festival in September.
In the high street there were a couple of properties that obviously would have been glorious at some point before they fell in disuse.
old-house-lanjaron

 

 

 

 

 

 


There was also a sort of park with gates and a small building that said “CONTROL” near the entrance that was locked, but there was a poster announcing opening times of 8.30 to 9.00. Very strange.
The view across the gorge back towards the coast.

A quick drive back to Nerja and then along to Torrrox Racing club to see the  Mama Paula Blues band.
What can I say? The best live music I have seen for quite some time. Fabulous.
Mama Paula are the support band for the not to be missed Bootleg Beatles concert on Saturday 31st August in Frigiliana.
You can find out more about the concert and where to get tickets here

10th August
Nerja is busy, the beaches are full and there is quite a lot on in August, the plaza de fabrica de cangrejo has something on every night and Torrecilla beach hosts the Noche Blanco next Wednesday from 9pm until 2am.
Dress all in white and enjoy 5 DJ’s.

There are other fiestas/ferias in the area: Alcaucin, Canillas de Aceituna, Colmenar and Motril all have something happening this weekend and in Almunecar on  15th August the Fiesta de la Virgen de la Antigua sees a huge firework display. The 15th is also a public holiday as it is the Day of the Assumption in the catholic calendar, which celebrates the taking up of the Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her life.

This weekend is usually great for seeing shooting stars, actually debris from the tail of the comet Swift Tuttle and more commonly called the Perseid meteor shower but the name Tears of St Lawrence is used, the name comes from St Lawrence of Rome who was martyred this time of year in 258.
From now up until the 12th you can still catch some spectacular shootings stars again in the hours just before dawn, just find somewhere where light pollution is not a problem and just lie down and look up into the night sky towards north.
The showers peak in the  hours just before dawn on the 11th & 12th August.
Don’t even bother with binoculars or a telescope as you will have too narrow a field of vision and simply miss them

So set the alarm for 4am and get to a place where there is little or no light pollution and watch the show which ranges from tiny  shooting stars (as small as a pea) that only last a second or less, to fireballs ( bigger than a grapefuit) which can last three or four seconds and are the only ones you can say “there’s one!” and be proved right!

9th August. 

6.36pm: Phew! Panic over!

World exclusive: shortly before 6pm a massive (well maybe not) hole appeared next to a manhole cover in the road outside the Jamaica restaurant. Chaos ensued (well two men were very interested in what was happening) Someone is looking into it. We will keep you posted as events unfold!

It is Linda’s birthday this Saturday and to celebrate Linda will be partying at Irish Annie’s bar with Flip providing the musical entertainment from 4 to 7pm everyone welcome!

On a serious note Donald from Nerja is looking for a partner, not a young chick but one a bit more grown up and mature. Donald offers accommodation by the beach with swimming pool and lots to eat and drink.
If you know of suitable applicants please call 634 778 731 or drop me an email.

Oh by the way Donald is a duck lol

The previously walled off pieces of land to the west of Nerja in the general Chaparil area have re-opened as free car parking woo hoo  (see post from July 2010 here ) But honestly you could not make this up LOL.

Do you remember the plots of land in the west of town that our lovely mayor forced the owners of to wall off to stop the land being used as car parking, and sort of encourage people to use the failing underground car park on Verano Azul (that is now closed to the general public)

Well…..what is happening I wonder? a car park or two perchance LOL

Congratulations to Cathy the new boss of Potters bar which re-opened yesterday afternoon. As the bar is now part of the Boatyard empire there is the almost obligatory great offer on bottles Carlsberg and pints of draft lager both for 1 euro each!

New Choir in Velez Malaga:
“Do you live in Axarquia? Do you like to sing but find yourself singing alone at home or in the car? Would you like to sing with new friends?    Why not join us?  Bel Canto is a multi-national group from across the region who likes to get together once a week to sing in a variety of musical styles. We meet in Velez Malaga.   We have a professional musician to direct us and to help us improve our singing. From time to time, we give public performances, but above all we take pleasure in singing together.  All nationalities are welcomed.
If you would like to know more all you have to do is give Louise a call on 952 534 173. If you leave a message with your number Louise will call you back. (For Spanish speakers call Mariángeles on 952 510 173)
Rehearsals will start early in September. Don’t miss this opportunity to make new friends!”

With the recent 10% increase in tax duty on spirits in Spain will this see the end of the “free pour” and the larger measures than the UK that we are used to here?
Jimmy’s on Antonio Millon is already using 25ml optics (that are also connected to the till!)

What is happening on Chaparil…it has been suggested that a roundabout is to be built.
Aren’t roundabouts great? but in the middle of a one way street? Work starts on Thursday so I guess we will have to wait and see.

San Juan-2:
The town hall announced that people could start camping on El Playazo beach from Saturday for San Juan but early this morning there were loads of pitches marked out with re-bar and posts and tape.
Alan from Rafters Rastro was busy unloading part of the living room set (sofas, TV coffee table standing lamp etc LOL) when the local police accompanied by a town hall van came along and told him not to…..unless it was a tent. Alan rang me and we quickly erected a tent on the pitch we wanted.
The ayuntamiento workmen then proceeded to remove all the markers for pitches that didn’t have a tent.

There was also a big sea fret this morning but you could still really feel the heat of the sun and I guess there may well be some red legs in the sunset this evening.

A reminder that as visitor numbers increase in Nerja just like any popular destination, so do the number of thieves, robbers and villains!
Do not carry large amounts of cash with you, or credit cards, flight tickets or your passport unless absolutely necessary.
Be wary of people who seem to want to ask directions especially if they are two or three and they crowd you.
If driving watch out for another car trying to flag you down (unless it is the police obviously)
Keep all valuables out of sight in the boot and certainly not on the passenger seat.
Do not leave your car unattended with your luggage in it.
In supermarket car parks watch out for anyone trying to distract you.
Watch out for lucky heather type sellers or someone trying to sell you a winning lottery ticket that they can’t cash in because they need to catch a flight.
Be careful while getting money from a cash point machine and don’t walk out of a bank ot money exchange with cash in your hand.
Ladies keep you handbag across your shoulder and under your arm.

Having said all that, Nerja is no less safe than anywhere else and keeping common sense in mind you will have a safe and enjoyable stay here :)

18th June
A reminder: The Chapel Bar San Juan beach Party. the last day to buy tickets is tomorrow ( Wed ).

Well after a nice break away from Nerja for a few days I am back in sunny Nerja, well right now there is a massive sea mist rolling in so no sun LOL.

This Sunday sees the biggest beach party in Spain when everyone heads to the beach to celebrate San Juan.
and this year’s event will also see a peligree full moon. This is when the moon is at the closest point to the earth so it will look bigger than usual.
San Juan is the only day of the year people are allowed to camp overnight on the beach and this year because it falls on a Sunday no doubt lots of people will be sneaking an extra night.
So whether you are doing the full camping on the beach or just a wander along enjoying sardinas and cold beer have a great time.    more on San Juan
