New Year in Nerja

I read recently that over 45% of British adults spend their New Year’s Eve at home in their PJs. I recommend they pack a bag and come and see in the New Year with us in Nerja.

'Noche Vieja' is one of the best nights of the year. Much of the town comes together on the Balcon de Europa where there is live music, fireworks and stalls selling hot drinks. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed with young and old enjoying the celebrations. As the clock chimes midnight it is a Spanish tradition to eat one grape for each chime. This is said to bring you good luck for each month of the following year. However rather than bringing a bunch of grapes with you I recommend buying the small tins sold in local supermarkets. This avoids the horrid realisation that you haven’t bought seedless grapes or that you haven’t got enough grapes and may inadvertently have earnt some bad luck.

So why not leave the PJs at home this year and come and join the party in Nerja.
