The Caves of Nerja

November 22, 2017 | Activities, Andalucia, Costa del Sol, Spain

The Nerja caves are one of Spain’s top tourist attractions, and well worth the visit especially if you have kids who are wilting in the summer heat. The caves were re-discovered in modern times in 1959 by five friends, who entered through a narrow sinkhole known as “La Mina”. This forms one of the two natural entrances to the cave system. A third entrance was created in 1960 to allow easy access for tourists. There is relatively easy access via a flight of stairs and concreted pathways to allow tourists to move about in the cavern without difficulty. They are located on the outskirts of Maro, a small village 5 km from Nerja.

    The site comprises a series of huge beautifully lit caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and boasts the world’s largest stalagmite. Now that’s something to tell the other kids about when they get back to school! (Sophie Russell-Ross)
