Supermarkets near Oasis de Capistrano

by bambiboy

Can anyone tell me about supermarkets in the vicinity of the Oasis de Capistrano development? We arrive Saturday evening and it would be helpful to know if any supermarkets will still be open after 6pm, so we can buy essentials for the first couple of days. Alternatively, are there any large "out-of-town" supermarkets (pref. on the east side of town) at which we could stop on the way into Nerja, also after 6pm on a Saturday evening? Any advice will be welcome! Thanks.

Re: Supermarkets near Oasis de Capistrano

by KayCaldwell

No use for Bambiboy, but if anyone else is accessing this site with the same question, Supersol is a large supermarket just before you come to Oasis de Capistrano, on the main road on the left (coming from Malaga: just beyond OdC on the right if coming from other direction.) It's normally open until 8 or 9 p.m. in the summer months, but closed on Sundays.

Eroski is a large hypermarket in between Malaga and Nerja (about twenty minutes from Nerja) and stocks most things.

Travel Tips for Nerja

Sevillanas

by amapola66

Sevillanas is a dance associated with flamenco but it is not strictly flamenco and is believed to be an old Castilian folk dance.

It is danced in pairs (based on the old style of courtship, but it doesn't 'have' to be a man and a woman) and usually danced by groups during the Feria de Sevilla and has made its way into discos and bars as a popular dance form in recent years. It is a social dance, most Spanish children learning it from a young age.

Both the songs and the dance always have the same structure, the same rhythm, the same pattern and you can dance sevillanas with everybody at parties, ferias and fiestas. The sentiments expressed are normally festive or amorous, with plenty of room for humor - Sevillanas is fun!

The dance is in a set of 4 verses and takes some effort to remember the steps. Ideally, you could do with a workshop to get the basics as there are steps, arms, clapping (palmas), timing and style to consider and all at the same time. Some people also dance it with castanets.

Steps include the Sevillana step, pasadas (passes), stamps, endings, turns and more.
There is so much to remember, but once you have it, you can add your own personal style to make it your own, yet still fitting in with everyone else.

When in Nerja, check out what's going on in one of the free local entertainment rags, there are classes (highly recommended and reasonably priced) and shows to see . (Try the Caves of Nerja to see what's on).

(Pictured here, the lovely Lola's class I attend here in Brighton, performing Sevillanas at a show in London last year).

Chinese cuisine at China House.

by Pauldelabar about China House.

Chinese Restaurant
An excellent place to dine if you like Chinese food is Chinese House. This is a truly large and popular restaurant.

All the usual Chinese items are on the menu plus a few more that you (certainly I) may not have heard of.

For those who like to eat their Chinese at home, (for home read apartment or Villa), they do a take away service. (Last take away orders 11.45pm). They will also deliver.

Fully licensed. Spare ribs, Beef Chow Mein, Chinese beef Curry, Chop Suey, Beef in Black bean sauce, Spring Rolls.........The list is endless and all good.

One thing only. Sauces are a lot thinner than we are used to in the UK.
This is not a reflection on this particular restaurant. All over Spain, Chinese sauces tend to be thin.

Disabled notes:
Level access but pavements very narrow for wheelchairs.

Nerja's Caves

by Beach_dog

Nerja's most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its fascinating caves, located just three kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer.
