This short tapas trail takes in five excellent tapas bars in the centre of the old town, plus three more within a 5 minute walk. All give a free tapa with your drink.

Starting at La Piqueta on Calle Pintada (a free tapa is brought with your drink), then moving up the street to Paco Mari and Redondo on Calle Gloria (the narrow side street that links Pintada to Cristo) – in both of these bars you get a choice of tapas.

Next go to El Pulguilla (huge choice of fish or meat tapas) down the hill on Calle Cristo before going round the corner to Calle Carabeo to try Los Barriles where you will get cheese and bread.

This is a classic Tapas Trail and you will find bars you will want to return to again and again.

Please note that some of these bars are not open on Sundays and some also take a break in the winter months, however there are always at least a few tapas bars open in this area, year round.

If you are feeling more adventurous you can also try some smaller bars in the back streets of Nerja. Go up the hill along Calle Cristo and find El Niño. There are also two more small tapas bars on Calle Bolivia; Puntillas and Chispa – both of these are well worth trying, but do get very busy with locals, so are not for the faint hearted.

UPDATE WINTER 2013/2014: Bar Turry has reopened as El Quijote and Los Cuñaos is under new management. Both are worth visiting.
