All pros, can't really think of any cons, if the suns out it's still tee shirt and shorts (then again i am a northerner).

Thanks Alf, positive as always. Maybe sewage works should be banned.

To answer your question re pros and cons of Nerja,it would be helpful to know how you anticipate spending your time there.
Are you interested in cultural pursuits ? There is an active Arts society and History group.

I have visited Nerja a number of times but only for the day and predominately to play Petanque near the Super Sol. I have spent the last 5 winters at Almuñecar just down the coast. This winter I am considering staying in Nerja but having only visited it in the daytime I’m unsure what it to expect as it seems very different to Almuñecar. I enjoy obviously pétanque but also walking and going for a drink in the evening, I think there is a cinema in Nerja which I’d be interested in. I’m not sure if there is much crime in and around Nerja.

There isn't an actual cinema in Nerja, but they do show films at the Cultural Centre on Calle Granada. They have a very good programme of other events there too, such as concerts.

I would not say there is a lot of crime in Nerja, but like everywhere else there is some. We sometimes read of arrests being made for drug dealing, occasional robberies and pickpocketing. One spot to be careful of is the bus station (it isn't really a bus station, just a couple of stops on either side of the main road, with a small ticket kiosk). It can be a bit of a scrum to get on buses particularly at busy times, and pickpockets thrive in such situations just like they do in crowded markets. I had my purse stolen out of my handbag a few years ago after queuing to board a bus there, and didn't know a thing about it until I'd been on the bus for some time and came to look for it. But I don't want to give the impression the place is a hotbed of crime, it isn't.

As you enjoy walking try the walk along the Rio chillar.
As for a drink in the evening I guess it depends whether you prefer tourist oriented venues or bars mostly frequented by locals if the latter try Bar Bodega de los Bilbainos in the past a meeting place for communists and or Vinoleto. Both basic clean and unpretentious, however I have only been in the afternoon. Vinoleto had some interesting tapas.
