Nerja, Costa del Sol in February

La Herradura Beaches at sunset.

Today we decided with Mrs. M and Mrs T to drive east to the beautiful Nerja region to give Mrs. M a glimpse of the eastern parts of Costa del Sol. We had already been driving along the western seaside when returning from Jerez. And we have also seen parts of the mountain area north to northeast of Marbella. We have liked Nerja from the day we first visited it on our arrival to Spain in June last year.  
Also this time we decided to leave the caves for another time and instead we spent time in the town itself having lunch and taking more pictures from Nerja for future use.

Nerja is only about an hours drive from Fuengirola and therefore suitable for a days excursion if you only want to see the town itself. There is a good parking lot near the sea with a good access in a town otherwise having rather steep hillsides. It was also nice to view the Sierra Nevada and it took us by a little surprise as we spotted only very small amounts of snow in one or two places. The southern slopes seem easily accessible this time of the year which was good news to us.

Before returning home along the A-7 we drove towards the east from Nerja to reach La Herradura. This strip of coastline is really photographic and several miradors are placed for stopping for some pictures. This evening the sunset was beautiful with some haze and low clouds near the sun. The below pictures is taken towards the east and summarizes this blogpost.

Driving towards La Herradura. Coastline is picturesque, isn't it.

Thank you Andalucia for an excellent network of roads following one of the worlds most beautiful coastlines.
