Action for Animals End the Season with a Success

Many thanks to the lovely folk who attended Wednesday’s quiz at Bar Cerezo in Canillas de Albaida.

160€ was raised for the charity, and it was doubled by a very generous donation from Fran Bennett.

It was a great night, and hopefully I’ll see you all in September after the summer break.



Cat – Misssing 

Disappeared  15th June in Nerja
lost from Pueblo Mediterraneo 2 / Edificio Bahamas area, above Burriana beach just off Calle Filipinas .

Our “Bonnie” has disappeared from our balcony this morning .

She never goes out only on our roof terrace or on our balcony .

She got onto the fence and we’ve not seen her since

She’s very timid and will be terrified !

Once before this happened a long time ago and was found in a neighbour’s house but we’ve searched them !

You can call me on 0034627269509 .

OR email.. bigbrisue @ hotmail.com , thankyou

kind regards




Is it a health hazard to swim in the sea around Nerja?

Can anyone help with a serious concern of mine?
There have been a lot of reports recently about the sewage floating in the sea in the area of the Torrecilla and Playazo beaches and there has, apparently, been work going on to repair a damaged pipe that takes raw sewage out to sea. I recently enquired at the Tourist Information Office and was told, with a shrug of the shoulders, that it was safe before the work started and that it is safe now.
This is not really good enough and I have heard people who are on holiday here for the first time saying that, while they love Nerja, they will not be returning because of the condoms, sewage and other items floating in the water.
Presumably the sea water is tested regularly so can anyone actually confirm that it is safe to swim in the sea?  There may have been a broken pipe and there may be reasons why a new sewage plant is still not in operation but is there anyone who can say whether or not it is safe to swim in the Nerja area?
My photograph shows one of the areas of pollution floating in the sea off the Playazo beach near to the Marinas de Nerja on Thursday afternoon and I can only say that it looks distinctly like sewage and put me off swimming there.
