    Nerja then Granada

    July 14 in Spain

    This morning we got our swimmers on and went straight downstairs to the beach. There was no time to be wasted. Beautiful warm sunshine and the Mediterranean was beckoning. We sat on the beach for about an hour, swam for a while in the clear water and skimmed stones across the sea. It wa a very memorable morning and we wished we were staying longer in the Costa del Sol. We had to check out at 12:00pm so that was the limit of the time we had.

    We then drove about five minutes down the road to the famous viewing terrace called Balcon de Europa. It has a spectacular vista of the magnificent beaches in the area. The view is the most used publicity photo used to promote this region. We spent some time here soaking up the atmosphere. We bought some lunch and had an ice cream from one of the many stores selling a huge variety of flavours.

    We then headed off towards Granada, stopping only to look at the notable landmark which is the aqueduct with four tiers of arches. Another memorable sight in Nerja.

    We reluctantly left Nerja, wishing we had allocated more time to this beautiful coastal region of southern Spain.

    The last city at the Mediterranean Sea we visited on this trip was Nerja. It is a small town located on a rock with a great view on the ocean. The hotel and the viewpoint in Nerja is named "Balcon de Europe".
    All in all it was a nice stop for a coffee and some churros on our way to Granada.

    Die letzte Stadt am Mittelmeer die wir auf dieser Reise besucht haben war Nerja. Nerja ist eine kleine und sehr touristische Stadt die auf den Klippen einer Steilküste gebaut ist. Der beste Aussichtspunkt und das daneben liegende Hotel heißt "Balkon von Europa". Der Name ist nicht ganz abwegig denn es fühlt sich tatsächlich wie auf einem Balkon an, wenn man dort steht.

    Es war definitiv ein guter Kaffee und Churros Stop auf unserem Weg nach Granada.
