Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara Mountain range, where mountains meet the sea and overlooking the blue Mediterranean, is the beautiful Spanish whitewashed enclave of Punta Lara!
The setting could not be more beautiful or peaceful. Whether you are viewing Punta Lara from afar or taking in the breath-taking views from Punta Lara, everywhere you turn is a stunning picture!
This little gem of a cluster of typical and beautifully authentic Spanish dwellings has got to be one of the loveliest such places in Spain! In fact, Nerja itself was recently voted the best coastal resort in Spain, and deservedly so! From here, it is possible to have the peace and tranquillity, yet be easily able to dip into the bustle and vibrancy of the town – best of both worlds!
For families seeking a real relaxing break – to couples just wanting to get away from it all; yet having everything they need within easy reach – this is the perfect place! A 25-minute stroll into town along the rustic beach, brings you to the beautiful vibrant town, with whitewashed streets and the famous and incredible Balcon de Europa, which has to be seen.
Meanwhile, there are several restaurants and bars within 5 minutes’ walk – all catering for different tastes and budgets. A 10-minute stroll down to the Playa Playazo Beach will lead you to two Chiringuitos which serve fresh fish and seafood, as well as delicious barbecued meats and fresh crunchy salads and traditional potatoes – all at extremely reasonable prices. Try a delicious glass of wine and just sit and take in the wonderful view of the gently rippling waves and the sun on the water which creates a mesmerising sparkling carpet of jewels… A paradise for sure!
We are so privileged and fortunate to have lived here for 11 years, and we appreciate every single beautiful thing that living here brings… A must try for your next holiday break – but prepare yourself to visit ever after on a regular basis…
The pull to return to Nerja is magnetic, and to stay in Punta Lara is the icing on the cake!
