Filming At CalahondaOver the past 12 months, Nerja has been the setting for a total of 34 TV, film and photographic productions, ranging from commercials, TV reports, fashion shoots and even a feature film. July was the busiest month, with a total of ten productions, followed by May with six, comfortably beating the dozen that took place in the whole of 2012

2013 started with adverts filmed for Panasonic, Orange and Timotei who used Burriana and Maro beaches as backdrops. In May Playa Calahonda (pictured) and the Balcon de Europa were the setting for the filming of a new movie “All Inclusive” by the German director and writer Doris Dörrie, set in the 1970s and the present day, with actors and extras dressed for the 1970s.

During the summer, Spanish TV companies visited the town to report from the cliffs of Maro, the beaches, the Rio Chillar walk and the Nerja Caves as well as making an episode of a new Spanish TV game show “Negocia como puedas”. Foreign TV crews were also visitors to Nerja, from Japan, Uruguay and the UK. Channel 4 recorded an episode of “A Place In The Sun” and the BBC filmed an installment of “Wolly and Tig” for CBBC.

Nerja’s councillor for Tourism, Bernardo Pozuelo said that this year’s productions “consolidates the municipality as an excellent natural setting with its light and landscapes” and has confirmed that the first production for 2014 will be by a French fashion company in the middle of January.
