Nerja or Cadiz?

Deciding between Nerja and Cadiz, two very different destinations in Andalusia, depends entirely on the kind of holiday experience you're looking for. Here's a bit about each location to help you make an informed decision:

Nerja is a popular seaside town on the Costa del Sol, known for its stunning beaches, charming old town, and the Balcon de Europa, which offers panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea. Highlights include the Nerja Caves, an ancient and fascinating network of caves, and the local cuisine, especially seafood. Nerja's pace of life tends to be relaxed, making it a great destination if you're looking to enjoy the beach, soak up some sun, and have a laid-back holiday.

Cadiz, one of the oldest cities in Western Europe, is located on a peninsula in southwestern Spain. It is known for its rich history, beautiful plazas, and long, sandy beaches. The old town is characterized by narrow winding alleys connecting large plazas, with architecture that reflects the city's maritime history. The Cadiz Cathedral and Tavira Tower, which offers great views of the city, are popular attractions. Cadiz also has a more vibrant nightlife and a larger city atmosphere compared to Nerja, thanks to its status as a provincial capital and a port.

In short, if you're looking for a more relaxed, small-town beach holiday with some opportunities for exploration, Nerja would likely be your best bet. On the other hand, if you're interested in a combination of beach and city life, with more emphasis on history and culture, you may find Cadiz more to your liking.

Remember, the best choice depends on your personal preferences, and both destinations offer unique Spanish charm and experiences.
