Nerja Beaches


The problem is not with holes in the pipe-line. It is simply the fact that raw sewage is pumped out to sea and this is then washed backed to the shore by the tides. The authorities say that the force of the waves etc should break up the sewage but that doesn´t stop us frequently having filthy water. It is also affecting other beaches along the coast.

I am a beach person and I do check before I go in the water BUT I do not go in above my neck. Also I only use a beach that has showers so I can rinse off straight away and then have a good shower when I get home.

This has been a problem for many, many years and is already well known by Nerja’s visitors. Google ‘Nerja sea pollution’ and there are articles going back years from sites like Trip advisor, (the US and New Zealand versions as well) that talk about the state of the sea. The authorities are well aware of it and the possible damage to the tourist industry, but have not exactly rushed to build a water treatment works.

Recommendation- for Band Hire

Sol Souvenir is an acoustic duo, both play guitar and sing. I first saw them last year, at Cochran’s Irish Bar, playing to a packed house. One of the best gigs I attended in 2016. Now they are back in the area after a Winter away. I saw them recently at Busker’s Bar, Nerja. Another excellent gig.

I would highly recommend them if you are seeking some live entertainment for almost any type of event. Very reasonable rates. Perfect for weddings, reunions, parties, bar gigs, etc. Still young enough to exude boundless musical excitement, they are none-the-less both polished musicians and vocalists. They bring a small but strong, high quality PA system. They don’t require much space to set-up.

They have a long playlist covering Rock, Folk, Blues, Pop Classics. They are native Spanish speaking, but speak and sing in English. They do not use backing tracks. They do not use pitch correction. They do sing from the heart, and each show is unique, tailored to the situation.

Email them for pics, rates or more info:

Recommendation Needed – Car Valeting

Looking for recommendations for car valeting, inside and out.

Around the Sayalonga area, so Algarobbo to Competa. I recall services mentioned in the recent past but there no longer seems to be a searchable archive.

I may of course be being stupid but I can only seem to search each daily blog individually, and the old digame archive although searchable and categorized is well out of date.
recommendations to bob @ extralan.co.uk

(Searching Digamextra: Simply enter “digamextra + car valet” into Google or Bing search page. You will get a list of results in chronological order. Hint: look at DigameXtra issue #610, Fri., 02June 2017 for the most recent car valet recommendation.)
