Nerja & Frigiliana, June 2015

hiking Frigiliana 🔜 Nerja

Happiness comes from the novelty of new experience and I am lucky enough to have met Rachael, who also turns out to be a kayaking instructor. So here we go, my first amazingly wonderful experience with kayaking.

The weather turned out to be perfect, the sea was completely calm. We got our kayaking rentals from a stall on playa carabeillo, one of the most beautiful beaches in Nerja. The all inclusive rental comes at a mere €5.5 per hour. On a second thought, after spending a few months in London, everything from the south coast Spain appears to be ridiculously cheap!
Playa Carabeillo is an easy walk from the famous Balcón de Europa. As we paddle away, there are gorgeous waterfalls and secluded coves on almost every corner. The water is incredibly clear& I got to experience this 2 hours of pure bliss.

Frigiliana is one of the many Pueblos Blancos (white villages) you could visit in in Andalucia. Her rich Moorish culture and history could be seen in the Mudéjar district.

This is the old district inhabited by the Moors before and after the Reconquista. Its name Mudéjar is used to describe the architectural style used by Arab craftsmen working in Christian territory. 


For four days at the end of August each year, Frigiliana hosts the Festival of the Three Cultures (Festival de las Tres Culturas), celebrating the region’s historic confluence and co-existence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish traditions. (from Wikipedia)
