Deserts & Crystal Caves

Comfortable in our Flamenco Campers van, we took the motorway from Malaga along the coast of the Mediterranean. Driving Lola is much like a car. Although it’s a big camper, its responsive and easy to drive. The route on the motorway is beautiful, and with the elevated position of the campervan, you can enjoy great views from the road. Here the climate is amongst the very best in Europe – and dry in winter so a popular place to explore off season too.

The town of Nerja, about 45 minutes makes for a good place to take a break. Nerja, sheltered by the beautiful mountains of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama is a joy to explore. It is a typical white Andalusian town, with plenty of choices for places to eat. Also, just outside the town is Maro. This small hamlet as a beautiful cove and beach. You can park the camper in the pubic carpark and walk down to this special spot. Also, just north of the little village is la Cueva de Ne
