Feria always includes the 10th and 12th, both holidays, and is generally 8th/9th to 12th October.

Feria is a great time to visit - a chance to see the locals in costume and partying all night long - BUT be very careful where you book your accommodation.

You need to be well away from the Feria groiund if you want to get any sleep!!!

The ground is between Calle Carabeo and Calle Los Huertos going towards the Parador. For the rest of the year it is the largest car park in the town.

Thanks again Campolady, managed to locate it on google maps, think we are going off the idea of going to Nerja at that time of year.

Is there anywhere else along the coast that anybody could recommend, we would be flying into Malaga, we could also fly into Alicante.

We are restricted to these dates, and are looking for a place similiar to Nerja,we are a couple in our late 40's, looking for a nice beach some nice tapa's bars and some nice walk's.

Cheers

Have a look at Torre del Mar - just 15 minutes drive or 30 minutes bus ride from Nerja so you could still go there for the day and see some of the Feria festivities.

Torre del Mar is a working Spanish town that lacks the ´prettiness´ of Nerja but has an excellent beach and promenade plus some of the best Tapas Bars in the area (Spanish prices rather than Tourist prices).

It also has a good bus service to Velez Malaga, Malaga city, Granada and even Seville.

Another place to consider is Almuñecar and neighbouring La Herradura.

Thanks very much Campolady

There is a few places to look at,Torre del Mar sounds interesting, will also look at Almuñecar and La Herradura.

Can discount Seville as we were there in April and really enjoyed it (we like to try different places), and we are booked to got to Granada and Malaga in April next year.

So we have a bit of research to do, thanks again for the valuable info

If you still wanted to visit Nerja on those dates, there is plenty of choice of apartments at the Torrecilla beach side of town well away from the noise of the Feria. Have a look at Acapulco Playa, Las Palmeras and along the beach front, by the Monica. You wont be troubled by any noise.

Thanks nerjaforme,

We would prefer Nerja, but we are a bit concerned if the town just becomes a bit overrun and all the restuarants and bars are really busy and we struggle to get a seat.
