“Wonderful Nerja”
Review of Capistrano Playa

Ranked #18 of 54 things to do in Nerja

Attraction details
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Just returned from a week in Nerja, staying in an apartment at Capistrano Playa. Nerja really is a gem: a small family resort with a delightful Spanish town at it's core. The narrow streets are full of interest at any time of day, there are several good beaches, a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and many excellent bars, cafes and restaurants.
The one note of caution is amply illustrated by the urbanisation at Capistrano Playa.Nerja sits on a series of cliffs dissected by deep valleys or "barrancas" which mean steep climbs abound around the town, and which may prove difficult for the less mobile or families with very young kids. Our apartment at Capistrano Playa sat at the very top of the complex which meant a long,steep climb back up from nearby Burriana Beach.and havoc for my dodgy knees....although the stunning views over the bay were a fair reward!
Capistrano Playa is an excellent choice if the steep slope is not an issue;if it is, then try the more accessible El Capistrano (Capistrano Village), our favourite place to stay in Nerja

Went to visit Nerja whilst staying nearby, what a beautiful place, never been there before, weather on the day we went (March 2013) was beautiful, warm and sunny. It is very clean, food was lovely, atmosphere was wonderful, very pretty and well worth a visit, we just can't wait to go back next year but hopefully for longer

Try the fish of the day - it is sublime. So very fresh and delicious. This is set right on the beach and the staff are just lovely. Nothing is too much trouble. I have eaten here many times and every one a winner.

This is probably the prettiest apartment complex I have stayed in , with waterfalls, well kept tropical gardens and pools. Our apartment was centrally situated on the plaza about midway between the top and the bottom so we could either get the lift to the top of the apartments where we parked our car or walk down the steps via the pools and waterfalls to the beach.The steps wern't too much of a problem as you can take your time and there are plenty of places to sit down and rest on the way up, tho sometimes after we had walked into Nerja and back we stopped for refreshment at one of the many bars on Burriana before we commenced the climb back. Nerja is great , nice beaches, bars, restaraunts and shops and not overly developed and there are lots of nice places nearby to visit if you've got a car. Will go back there in the not too distant future hopefully.
