Shops in Nerja. If shopping is one of your favourite things to do whilst on holiday, to wander the beautiful, whitewashed Streets of Nerja is never a chore! So many different shops offering anything you could wish for!
In the centre of the town, the streets are narrow and paved, and in the summer, shaded by beautiful sails, of cream and white, tied high from building to building. These contrast with the many varieties of plants and flowers of all colours which adorn every building! The smell of jasmine permeates the air, and the shops themselves offer a cooling and colourful oasis out of the hot Spanish sun.
You will find everything from distinctive and exclusive designs from individual ‘costurias’ to simple but beautiful basic pieces. Spanish-made clothes are always of good quality and excellent value for money. Spanish shoes are in Abundance, with a huge range of styles to suit every taste and need. Of course, you may need a handbag also – look no further than these gorgeous and authentic Spanish ‘Tiendas’! The Spanish style in general is chic and quite colourful, and the shops reflect that!
If it is Jewellery you are seeking, then look no further than the exquisite little jeweller’s shops in Nerja dotted around the town. Silver items are particularly in evidence with the most unusual and beautiful designs.
Of course, there are many gift shops in Nerja selling traditional Spanish items. Spanish fans, or ‘abanicos’ can be found everywhere, absolutely beautiful, useful and an excellent gift to take home. They come in all colours, patterns and sizes, and are easy to transport.
Food – Locally grown fruit and Vegetables:
It is also always good to experience the local fruit and vegetable shops in Nerja, which can be found almost anywhere. From tomatoes to mangos, to avocados and melons, and much, much more.
