Located just 60km from the capital is one of the best options whether you want to enjoy the beach in stunning coves, or visit some of its famous sites as the “Cuevas de Nerja” or the Balcón de Europa”. To enjoy your visit to this city and its surroundings, coasts and coves you will need mobility, so a good option would be to get a cheap car hire in Nerja. In Bahia Sexi you can choose the car that best suits your needs to enjoy your visit.

However, in this post we wanted to focus on giving you to know the city, its history, weather, gastronomy, “required” visits and all the activities it offers.

Thinking about your car hire in Nerja? Let’s take a walk through time first

When visiting any place, to enjoy the experience at a higher level, it is essential to know its history and customs. Knowing the meaning of its monuments and emblematic places will greatly enrich our stay.

History of Nerja

The exact date of foundation of the city is unknown, the first records of it are narrated in some documents of the Arab poet Ibn Sadí. He was a traveller who passed through it in the year 917. At that time the city was already important by and acquired great fame for the manufacture of coloured tissues and silk fabrics.

The Arabs gave it the name of Naricha or Narija which means “abundant spring”. At that time it was part of the province of Rayyam, the population settled under the protection of its castles, of which we can still find vestiges on the road to Frigiliana.

Prior to this stage there is no reference to settlements in the area. However, there are theories that already in the Upper Paleolithic there was a human presence in the area, for example in the famous Nerja Caves. There are also those who believe that there was a settlement in Roman times since nearby there was a village called Detunda, the current Maro.

With the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel and Fernando, an era that is known as the Reconquest arose in Spain, in which the Christians expelled the Muslims from the country. However, in Nerja they continued to live together for a time Christians, Muslims and Jews. Until a new order forced everyone who was not Christian to convert or leave the region.

There are stories that tell that the now known “Playa del Salón” was so called because it witnessed the exodus of hundreds of Jews who said goodbye to each other with the word “Shalom”. And just as sad was the end for the Muslims who were forced to leave a land where they had prospered for years.

Nerja was very depopulated during the sixteenth century until the repopulation was ordered to old Christians to occupy the abandoned houses. In compensation, they were granted exemption from paying taxes.

The eighteenth century is known as the golden stage in Nerja, its streets were improved, its buildings and churches were expanded, it benefited from the trade of wine, honey, sugar and flour and opened its doors to Malaga and Almeria with the construction of roads.

Currently, this city is one of the most prosperous and visited towns in the province of Malaga. Tourism and its immeasurable beauty have made it one of the jewels of the Andalusian coast, so do not hesitate to get a car hire in Nerja and fall in love once again.

Nerja weather

If you have already decided to get your Bahia Sexi car hire in Nerja, one of the most important issues to worry about is the Nerja weather. This varies depending on the month of the year and the season, but the Malaga coast is characterized by mild and warm temperatures throughout the year. The average annual temperature is 18.2 degrees.

In addition, there are few rainy months, so it is unlikely that rain ruins your vacation. The driest month is July and the highest amount of precipitation occurs in November, with an average of 57mm.

As for temperatures, the warmest month is August, however, the sea breeze along with the Mediterranean coastal climate make summer days very pleasant. You just have to be careful with a meteorological phenomenon characteristic of Malaga called “terral”. It is intense, hot and dry wind. Those days the heat intensifies and you will appreciate having the beach nearby. We recommend not to leave during the hours close to noon and to protect yourself well from the sun, with sunscreen and hats.

Now is time to take your hire car and talk about what to do in Nerja

The city of Nerja offers many leisure activities both day and night adapted for the taste of all types of visitors. Beaches, sports, gastronomy, natural monuments and beautiful sites … Here is a list of what to do in Nerja.

Going to the beach with your car hire in Nerja

One of the main activities for tourism in this town is to spend the day in one of its beaches or reserved coves, take a bath and enjoy its beauty. It has more than 17 beaches and these are some of the best known:

1. Playa Burriana

It is a large sandy beach located at the eastern end of the city and is the main bathing location of Nerja. If what you like is to be surrounded by people and meet the locals, do not hesitate to visit it.

2. Playa el Salón

It is the closest beach to the Balcón de Europa, it is accessed through a winding sandy road. It is one of the best beaches in the city. In it you can rent a hammock for sunbathing or eat typical food in the many beach bars that are spread throughout the maritime promenade.

3. Playa de Torrecilla

It is a clean beach with crystal clear water ideal for people who like scuba diving. It is one of the most popular in Nerja and has the rental of hammocks and jet skis. To access it, you just have to take an exit from the N-340 national road.

4. Playa de Maro

It is one of the most famous and recommended coves in the area. It has a wild and natural appearance and is located under some cliffs, also has beach bars where you can eat or drink a drink. We can leave your car hire parked on top of the cliff.

5. Playa de la Caletilla

It is a beach near the old town, accessible from the seafront. In it, we have wonderful views of the Balcón de Europa and the cliffs of Maro, which is why it is so famous in summer.

These are some of the beaches that we recommend in Bahia Sexi. However, if you are not a person who only likes a sun and beach vacation and you need to perform other activities, we recommend visiting some of these places.

Other activities and recommended visits in Nerja

Contemplate the views on the Balcón de Europa

The “Balcon de Europa” is a beautiful viewpoint located in the centre of the city. It is one of the most famous places in Andalusia. It is a meeting point for tourists and artists, where you can take an idyllic photograph of the Mediterranean Sea.

The name was given by King Alfonso XII, from whom we can find a statue in the viewpoint, after the great earthquake of 1884 that affected a large part of the region.

Go deep into the Caves of Nerja

Located in the municipality of Maro, a few kilometres from the city, we can easily reach it with our rental car. They were discovered in 1959, inside were discovered paintings of seals dated 42,000 years old. They could be the first works of art of humanity.

In the park “Verano Azul” we can find the original boat of the series. Verano Azul was one of the most famous Spanish series of the 80s. You can also book a guided tour to learn all the history of the series and its anecdotes.
