    Love it!
    Love the Balcon de Europa! Been before 5 years ago and on another visit to Spain it was on my list of things I wanted to do this time around. The Balcon has such a lovely atmosphere and lots going on. Last time there was a busker with a guitar and some dancers, this time there was a whole food market! Beautiful views of the beach and the sea and the surrounding area. A must visit!

    Best place to visit on the Costa del Sol
    We stayed in the Balcon de Europa hotel in a sea view room it's stunning. Its right on the beach with fantastic views of the sunrise. Love the parrots in the palm trees. A guy with a guitar plays for most of the day then back in the evenings. Nerja is a little hidden gem

    The city centre!
    This beautiful structure juts out into the sea and is a focal point for the town. Every visit to the centre involves us having a walk round it as no matter how many times you do it you see something different and wonderful. It is adorned with sculptures and beautiful gardens and really has a classy feel to it. You're never far from a bar or restaurant when you're on it as well so it really is that central. Make sure you take your camera as there are some magnificent views of the mountains and the sea, as well as the beach.

    Christmas decorations on steroids
    In December the Christmas decorations and flowers are spectacular adding to an already outstanding view. I would highly recommend checking out this area. We enjoyed sitting in the sun and listening to street musicians in December and found it warm enough to enjoy an outdoor dining experience.

    As wonderful as ever
    Whenever we go into town which is often twice a day we always have a walk around this wonderful structure. Every time you do go round it you see something different and it is always a hub of activity It is the main focal point of the town and leads down from the beautiful square with the stunning church on it. There are statues, gardens, plant pots on the wall and so many other things to make it beautiful. The views out to say absolutely stunning and it is a photographer's dream.
