Focus On Nerja for your wedding
Once a sleepy fishing village, Nerja is now a bustling tourist town oozing with character yet, one of the few places to have kept its traditional charm, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets and all the modern amenities you could hope for.
A walk along the Balcón de Europa offers spectacular panoramic views of the whole coast, definitely the best to be had in Nerja. The Balcón de Europa, is Nerja’s most famous landmark and the focal point for most of the town’s activities. Is the perfect spot for some absolutely stunning wedding photos.
Nerja boasts 16 kilometers of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east, the town has, fortunately, managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise scenario which has been the inevitable result of the tourist boom in some of the coastal resorts. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with geraniums. This is a perfect holiday destination to enjoy with family and friends.
Alternatively the white-washed village of Frigiliana is situated just 6kms from Nerja, this is another popular wedding choice. Frigiliana is regularly cited as being the most beautiful village in Andalucia and has consistently won awards to that effect. A maze of cobbled streets, with meticulously maintained whitewashed houses, decorated with plant pots brimming with bougainvillea, lavender and jasmine……looking for a postcard perfect Andalusian white-washed village? This is it. There is no wonder that this village is such a popular choice for brides getting married here in Spain.
