The market on Monday is pleasant busy. In the area (such as Nerja and Velez Malaga, Caleta de Veléz) there are also markets on other days.
Nerja is a busy tourist coastal town with several beautiful beaches, nice shopping streets and of course Balcon de Europa, a place to be. Later in the day and in the evening a lot of live music can be heard there. The caves of Nerja are also worth a visit.
A popular activity is walking along and through the river Rio Chillar. Especially in summer time this is a cooling experience. Do bring good shoes with you! See the link walking along the Rio Chillar.
