Had an amazing afternoon/evening! PAul and Valerie ( hope correct names I’m rubbish with names) were fabulous hosts and we also had great travel companions in the guests. Treated like royalty. Great food, activities, free flowing drinks and a stunning sunset. Couldn’t ask for more!

Boat trip (3 Replies)
Morning, Have been to Nerja many times and returning again this year. I have been asked to find out if there are any boat trips around. I have read only of 2, one from Torre del Mar and one from Marina del Este. One of which seems quite expensive (Sailandstay) and the other only gives a phone number, they have a Facebook page which I have messaged but have had no reply. Does anyone know of any others that may have started up. Many thanks
