Why should I explore Nerja by hired car?

Unterwegs in Nerja, Spanien

Exploring Nerja

Nerja is located in the province of Málaga in Andalusia, that is, on the south coast of Spain, on the Costa del Sol, near Granada or Málaga. About 22,000 inhabitants live here and enjoy the sun all year round. In the warm months they spoil tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world. The reason is simple. Nomen est omen. You are here on the Costa del Sol, in one of the sunniest areas in Europe. The place seems to have been settled a very long time ago. Caves testify to Paleolithic settlement by man. The first mention of the village by name dates back to the 10th century. In the 16th century a small fortress was built nearby to protect the town from attacks from the sea. The remains of this embattled period can still be admired today. However, the biggest attractions in the region, if you don't want to just bask in the sun, are the caves of Nerja, the Balcón de Eropa and the aqueduct east of town. The main reason for a holiday in the region, however, should be: to soak up the sun while swimming in the sea!

What is the best way to get to Nerja?

In Spain there are many cities with airports. Two destination airports are suitable for a quick trip to Nerja: Granada-Jaén Airport (GRX) and Malaga Airport (AGP). From both airports, you can get to Nerja by hired car within about an hour. However, you should have booked your hired car in advance. Only if it is available directly at the airport, you can travel as fast as possible. It is best to book it with a few days before your arrival. Indicate that you want to take it over directly at the airport. This way you will profit several times over.

Travel preparations - what you should know about your domicile

Wunderschöner Strand bei Nerja, Spanien

Beautiful beach near Nerja

The Costa del Sol is very spoiled when it comes to good weather and sun. As the very most important travel utensil we would consider a good sunscreen. After that comes a dictionary. Although there are a lot of tourists, not everywhere you can communicate in German. English could work as plan B. There is no guarantee for it. Third tip: Here the clocks tick differently. You live according to the climate and enjoy life. If you think you have to rush on holiday, you have two problems: First, the locals take it very easy and second, the executive does not like to see people speeding. That's why you should purposefully slow down on holiday.

These are the traffic rules you should follow in Andalusia


The beautiful landscape of Andalusia is ideal for a road trip. Starting with a hired car in Nerja is ideal to explore the coast of the Costa del Sol. As mentioned before, Spain has rough customs when you are stopped by the police for speeding, or parking the wrong way, to name just two examples. The following speed limits apply:

Road Speeding limit in km/h
Inner cities 50
Motorway 110


In Spain, parking sins are not a trivial offense. Here you have to pay attention. The colour of the line on the curb tells you whether you are allowed to park / stop or not.

  • Yellow: absolute no stopping
  • Blue: parking allowed for a limited time, partly with parking fees


Please take "fully comprehensive insurance without excess". You must also take out liability insurance. The liability coverage should be about 7.5 million euros total amount of damage.


Especially in heavy conditions, you may not always like to be in charge alone and take turns driving. So, especially in Spain, a second driver might be worthwhile. However, you may not simply take turns at the wheel. You may have to book a second driver. reveals all possible additional costs, if there are any for this.
