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 tranquility, 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 just has to be seen.
Meanwhile, there are several restaurants and bars within 5 minutes’ walk – all catering for different tastes and budgets. Also there is the Punta Lara Bar right in the middle of the urbanization. This is a late bar that opens around 6pm until late evening. The bar opens at 2pm Saturdays and Sundays. Perfect place to watch football or other sports with a great atmosphere.
A 10-minute stroll down to the Playa Playazo Beach will lead you to Chiringuito Mauri and 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. Just sit and take in the wonderful view of the gently rippling waves. The sun on the water just creates a mesmerizing sparkling carpet of jewels… A paradise for sure!
There is a fabulous swimming pool in Punta Lara ,which is set in a tropical garden setting. Sunbeds are provided and you can take advantage of the Costa Del Sol Sun, which this region adequately provides
Punta Lara swimming pool is probably the best community pool in Nerja. It provides a permanent lifeguard and children’s pool.
First of all the Punta Lara has a wonderful bar restaurant. This is open from May to October, providing excellent snacks and meals at unbelievable prices. Miguel and his family served delicious Spanish cuisine here, from morning until late at night. My favorite is the chicken kebab absolutely delicious.
Furthermore the Oasis restaurant is also next to the pool area where Toni and her family serve lovely simple Spanish food at excellent prices.
Punta Lara has several restaurants located either on the urbanization or nearby. This includes the The hotel Avalon which is rapidly becoming the most popular restaurant in Nerja. Kevin, Alex and their staff serve very tasty international cuisine and have a fantastic Al La Carte menu. eat on there fantastic terrace. … above all the views are amazing. Without doubt the ‘vistas’ from the Avalon terrace are the best of any restaurant in Andalucía, or indeed anywhere you would ever wish to eat……..astounding.
It is a privelage to live here and we have been here for 11 years. 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…
Furthermore the pull to return to Nerja is magnetic, and to stay in Punta Lara is the icing on the cake!
