Nerja is the only town in Malaga province to have been included in an Andalusian-wide programme designed to boost tourism following the coronavirus pandemic.

The initiative, which has been designed by the regional government, the Junta de Andalucía, will be giving a total of 5.1 million euros in financial help to 12 coastal resorts in a bid to stimulate tourism after the coronavirus pandemic. Nerja will receive just under 500,000 euros from the programme.

Nerja's councillor for beaches, Mari Carmen López, said that the money would be spent on improving access to La Torrecilla beach, public facilities on the promenade, a first aid and lifeguard room, more rubbish bins, information posters and better shower facilities.

Almuñécar has also been included in the programme and will receive 445,113 euros.
