We had ambitious plans when we decided to spend a month in Andalucía; we wanted to see all the cities, visit Morocco, enjoy the beach and the Sierra Nevadas. Well, nature, natural and our own, and the most popular (holy) week of the year, led to some different plans, but altogether we had a lot of fun. We visited Málaga, Frigiliana, Sevilla, and Granada (click on each city for a link on our visit) for multiple days, getting to experience a bit more of each place; more than a day trip . But we did take some of those, too. Here are the other places we were lucky enough to visit, even for a short time, during our time in Andalucía.
Nerja: 14 or so kilometers south of Frigiliana on the coast, Nerja was a fun day trip (and easily accessible from Frigiliana by bus, which ran every two hours or so, except Sundays). We walked along the paseo maritimo, sitting on benches looking out at the beaches, stopping in Chiringitos (beach bars) for snacks and drinks in between. We wish we could have had good enough weather for a beach day, as the many small beaches seemed nice to spend a day.
Ronda: We were told about the bridge, but there was a smaller bridge on the way that was sizeable too (and that is where we parked, so we walked up it as well). Nice place to sit and people watch; though the normally good coffee at the Parador hotels (basically connected to the Bridge itself) was lukewarm and disappointing. Still, the bridge is quite impressive and affords some great pictures.
Torremolino: A bit south of Málaga, we walked the promenade of this seaside town on a very windy day, but at least the sun was shining. Lots of Chiringitos (beach bars),heladrias (ice cream parlors) and tourist shops. There are a couple palm tree forests right on the beach, which are cool, as well. A nice walk on the beachfront.
