OK, it's just a personal thing but I hate those people who pose as living statues. There used to be none in Nerja but the last couple of years they are starting to multiply and are fast taking over the entrance to the Balcon de Europa.
The Spanish Mafia!
It seems around the area of Tutti Frutti Square a group of youths that can be indentified by a feather earring have caused me unease a few times, they are no more than any other towns idiots, just as a warning if you spot one of them try not to antagonise them, because they will have a few friends close to hanD!
Really they just tend to prefer being left alone by foreigners, unless they are women! Nothing much to be fearful, it can just prevent any trouble before it happens if you know what to look for.
The busy carriageway
This is the busy carriageway which starts in Malaga and runs right through into Nerja, I walked along here a couple of times at night because the beach was isolated, and the traffic is mad!!
Walk along the beach - Not this busy road!!
Not really a warning or a danger, but one thing I dislike seeing British style pubs in Spanish resorts. The seem to cater for the British tourist who are too nervous or narrow minded to experience anything new or different. To me it seems to be the kiss of death to a town with so much character, I just hope this trend does not continue here.
My suggestion would be to experience the local Spanish bars, you will get a friendly welcome and will often have the benefit of trying the local tapas, and experience something new.
Here was a Welsh bar, as a Welshman myself I can vouch that it is not really typical of Wales. Its called the Three Cliffs, after the well known Bay on the Gower peninsula in Wales.
