Balcón de Europa
Nerja is situated in the East part of the Costa del Sol and enjoys, together with Torrox, an exceptional climate. In winter the temperature is a few degrees above, and in summer a few degrees below that found in many other villages in the Costa del Sol.
This is because the Sierra de Almijara, the Sierra de Alhama and the Sierra de Tejeda protect this part of the Costa del Sol from the cold which comes from the North in winter and the inland heat in summer.
While it might be 45°C ( 112º F)in Cordoba, Seville or Granada, it will only be between 30° C.(83º F), and 35°C (93º F) in Nerja.
Nerja is a very popular spot for travellers seeking winter warmth as it generally has temperatures of around and above 20º C. (70º F).
In the centre of the town and on the beach areas, where the apartments CASA CHARLOTTE, CARABEO 2000, LA MAQUINILLA, CORONADO 58 and LUNA DE NERJA are located there is no pollen.
