Welcome to Nerjanow, your website for
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!
The Nerjanow Latest :
The DJ boys from Wonky Donkey Sessions at Papagayos bar on Calahonda beach are playing again this Saturday if you missed last Friday, don´t miss out this Saturday from 22h to 04h
The concert performed on the Balcon de Europa last night by the town’s junior band was most excellent, a great selection of music. These young talented musicians deserve the massive applause they got at the end of the evening. Well done!
I also got to see the new lighting of the cliffs at Calahonda beach for the first time
