The Costa del Sol, in Malaga, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain, but if you’re looking for a low-key vibe, head to Nerja. This former fishing village is wedged between the dramatic foothills of the Sierra Almijara and a long stretch of coast dotted with beaches, coves and rugged cliffs. Central to its waterfront is the famous Balcón de Europa with its breathtaking views of the sea.
