Quite famously known for it's historical caves which were only discovered in 1959 by five friends. There are two main sections to the cave known as Nerja I and Nerja II. Primitive paintings were also found here as were old objects and a skeleton which was recovered from the cave and is now on display in a glass case. Some of the cave paintings can be seen in Nerja l but Nerja ll containing the upper gallery is still not open to the public.
The sandy beaches of Nerja are a great place for children and the waters are shallow making it ideal for them to paddle about in. Nerja has 8 beaches and Nerja sit's on the sea front. Playa El Playazo, Playa Calahonda and Playa Burriana seem to be people's favoruites.
Playa Burriana, is the best beach in Nerja. It contains the best shops, bars, restaurants, sun bed & umbrella hire, outdoor activities and the good fun of pedaloes.
The name Fuengirola dates back to ancient times when it was known as Suel, a large town on the Costa del Sol in the province of Malaga, It is a major tourist resort, with more than 8 km of beaches. There is also the old port which is still been used by the fisherman.
The Zoo is well known throughout the Costa and what was an old-fashioned collection of cages was restored in 2001 to feature "tropical-forest" dwellings. The zoo now specializes in captive breeding for endangered species, chimpanzee-group research and tropical-forest education.
Marbella has long been a popular town for rich, but it is also enjoyed by many families, couples and group holiday makers who want a bit of luxury. Whilst the new part of the town is full of restaurants, bars, activities and nightclubs. The old town of Marbella still has the traditional charm and is where many of the locals hang out in the tapas bars.
The beaches in Marbella are second to none and the water quality is excellent, that is why you can find so many water sports here. And if you take a wander down to Puerto Banus, you will come across the famous and very expensive Yachts and cars. You never know, you may just come across the odd actor or football player on holiday too.
The climate is another factor that attracts the thousands of people each year all year round where Marbella enjoys around 2,900 hours of sun annually. Access to the town is possible by car and buses run regularly from Malaga and other near by villages and towns and makes possible for day trips.
To keep both adults and children entertained, there is are many things you can do in Marbella but we recommend not missing the sub tropical park, the bonsai museum, a walk round the old town, Ermita de Santiago, Rio Verde Roman Villa and a good look around the shops around the ports.
