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
