    Your Guided Group Holiday To Nerja, Granada & Costa del Sol 

    Travel with us on this fantastic sun holiday to Spain, where we will enjoy the southern region's breathtaking scenery, great weather and the unbeatable culture of Andalucía. We’ll stay in the delightful seaside town of Nerja, approximately 50km east of Malaga, and the perfect jumping off point to explore this region! From our base in Nerja, we will explore the olive groves of Lecrín or the ‘Valley of Joy’, Frigiliana and the Andalucian towns of Malaga. A full-day excursion to the historic city of Granada, the last stronghold of the Moors in Western Europe and home to the spectacular Alhambra Palace complex, will be a sure highlight. You’ll also have plenty of free time in Nerja for relaxing on the panoramic ‘Balcón de Europa’ or exploring the atmospheric whitewashed streets of the town.

    Please Note:

    • Some excursions on this holiday will involve walking on hilly terrain and uneven surfaces.
    • Perla Marina Hotel is on Half Board basis and Hotel Nerja Club & Spa is on Bed & Breakfast basis.
