Re: el capistrano

by DonDavisss

El Capistrano is a touristic community of newer casas and appartments just outside Nerja. It seems to be well-kept and popular with visitors. Nerja is a pretty nice spot on the Costa Oriental, with all the trimmings of a touristy town--- shops, restaurants, the Caves of Nerja and the "Balcony of Europe" jutting out into the Med Sea. I think the kids'll like it!

Allthough i stayed in a Pension of the old town, and so i don't know anything about the neighbourhood, i really like Nerja, plenty of restuarants, nice sea even though there are many tourists it still has a spanish atmosphere. If your kids like the beach, Nerja will be great.

Re: season blue in El Capistrano

by cwest03

I took a quick look and I can't seem to find a Gold Crown in El Capistrano (or Nerja for that matter). Did you say that you won something? That sounds kind of strange to me.

Re: season blue in El Capistrano

by kenbac

Capistrano is an Urb. That means an "urbanisation" or something like a holiday village. There are 4 Capistrano's in Nerja. they are all to the east of the centre and behind the Burriana Beach. The first one is quite near however they get further away from the coast and the last or fourth one is about 2 Km inland. Hope this helps.

swimming pool/sauna/steam - bicycle hire

by aegialichick

Hi !
Does anybody know where I could swim in a pool in Nerja and take a sauna steam bath?
And anywhere I could hire a bicycle for a week?
thanks in advance

RE: RE: swimming pool/sauna/steam - bicycle hire

by jaygee

There was a shop on C/ Chaparil that rented bikes last year. C/ Chaparil is on the west side of town, near Verano Azul park, but stepped back to the east by one street. The bike rental place is near the top, near the junction with Castilla Perez. and San Miguel.

If by pool you mean a public swimming pool, then you're out of luck as Nerja does not have one. The Capistrano Village complex has several for people staying there. Some of the hotels have their own.

Travel Tips for Nerja

Fishing in Andalucia

by Pauldelabar

As anyone who watches the fishing programs on T.V. will tell, there is plenty of fishing to be had in Spain. Whether Sea, River or Lake is your favourite, you will find it here in Spain.
Large fish and great scenery thrown in for good measure.

Sea Fishing.

The Med. shorelines are ideal for fishing and many of the marinas provide everything required for a day of sea fishing. From July to September swordfish are found off the coasts of Almería, Granada and Málaga, as well as in the Bay of Cádiz.

The tunny fishing grounds are Barbate, Zahara or Conil in Cádiz, and Isla Cristina in Huelva.

There are mackerel, blue fish, sea bass and spotted bass on the Atlantic coast as well as some 150 types of shark.

Eels, some quite large, are plentiful along the coast and they can put up a good fight. Rocky outcrops - such as on Torrecilla Beach in Nerja - are the best places and after dark is the best time to catch them. A good bait is strips of mackerel.

Sea fishing is permitted all year from one hour before dawn to one hour after sunset.

Fresh water Fishing.

Trout, pike and black bass, barbel and carp are found in the rivers and reservoirs. There are 64 fishing preserves in the Nature Parks of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas and Sierra Nevada

Rio Frio is a small town between Málaga and Granada, just off the motorway in the foothills of the Sierra de Loja. and trout fishing has been traced back to 1664. Record catches include a brown trout weighing 5.2 kg. There is an all year round season here. Permits can be obtained from: Alberge de Pescadores de Rio Frio, Riviera de Rio Frio s/n, 18300 Loja, (Granada) Tel: (0034) 958 32 31 77.

The open seasons:-
For freshwater fishing are:
Salmon: First Sunday in March to 18th July (limit: 3 fish a day)
Trout: First Sunday in March to 15th August (limit: 20 fish a day)
High mountain trout: 16th May to 30th September
Sturgeon: 1st January to 31st July
River crab: Thursdays, Saturdays and public holidays between 21st June and 31st August. A maritime recreational fishing license is required for fishing from the shore or from a boat near the coast. It is obtainable form the offices of the 'Delegación Provincial de la Conserjeria de Agricultura y Pesca'. There is one office in each of the provincial capital cities. Sports shops can often arrange for a license. The cost is €22 and you need a copy of your passport or NIE.

An angling licence is required for fishing in reservoirs, rivers and estuaries in Andalucia. They are obtainable from an office of the 'Delegación Agencia Medio Ambiente' (AMA). There is one office in each of the provincial capital cities. Licences are also obtainable from branches of the 'Cajamar' bank.

No prohibition at the speakeasy. (Calle Malaga)

by Pauldelabar about Speakeasy

British Restaurant/Bar.
An unsual theme is the Chicago styled Speakeasy. Photograghs and posters of a by-gone era of many themes such as film stars, boxing and the prohibition era decorate the bar.

A larger than most bar, it serves a good sellection of food.

Draught beers are John Smiths or San Miguel. A very cosy atmosphere.
Tea and Coffee are served and are both quite popular here, in the comfortable surroundings.

Price range:
Good value for money.
A bit limited on the conversation side unless you know someone who comes in.
Great American prohibition era theme throughout but there's no lack of drinks here.
Opening times:
Lunchtimes and evenings until fairly late.
Disabled notes:
A few steps ate the front and a narrow passage to the toilets need to be noted. Casual.

Paella on the beach

by CHELSEAWIN about Ayos - Burriana Beach

The best value lunch freshley cooked Paella in a great setting on Burriana Beach. It is very cheap and if you are still hungry you can go back for more!
The best day to go is on a Sunday when all the locals visit. Paella

Little Seafood Place

by jaygee about Chiringutio

This is a little chiringutio on Torrox-Costa promenade. Nothing fancy but great food., fish grilled on open fire. They also serve paella for one which can be dificult to find.

Very Spanish looking, waiter/owner has reasonable English. English menu available. Fried anchovies

Verano Azul

by smilenerja

From The Front Cover of Smile Nerja:) Issue 7

Some of you may have heard of the Spanish television series from the early 80’s, ‘Verano Azul’ or ‘Blue Summer’. It was a series about seven kids who spent the summer in Nerja getting into various adventures. The show covered a number of previously untouched subjects such as relationships and death. It won several awards including Best Actor, by Antonio Ferrandis and Best National Series. What you may not be aware of are the number of references to the programme that there are to be found around Nerja.

There is the most obvious - the Verano Azul Park, which houses the famous boat from the series ‘La Dorada 1’. In the park you will also find a number of plaques depicting the characters of the youngsters who appeared in the series, including that of ‘Tito’ played by Miguel Joven who was the only one to actually come from Nerja.

There are many streetnames, including ‘Antonio Ferrandis’ which is also known as ‘Chanquete’, these being the character and the actor’s names of the father-figure in the series. If you’ve ever wondered, whilst walking along the Paseo at Burriana beach, what the green metal chair depicts; this is a replica of the chair used by the Verano Azul director, Antonio Mercero.

There were also a number of businesses that sprang up at the time, using the name of ‘Verano Azul’ to enhance their business and evidence of these can still be seen around town today on the sides of their blue buses and on apartment buildings.

Why not go ‘Verano Azul Spotting’ yourselves and let us know if you find any more references around town!
