RIVER CHILLAR: Visits should be postponed credit: Diputacion de Malaga

AFTER two-and-a-half months in lockdown, Nerja’s caves are due to reopen on Monday.
During the first fortnight, most sightseers will come from inside the province but the caves’ manager, Chema Dominguez, told the local media that everything was ready for visits.
“We have installed a temperature-detection camera and visitors will need to use facemasks and gloves,” Dominguez said.
The caves open from 10am until 4.30pm and at present capacity is limited to an hourly maximum of 120 people.
Meanwhile, Nerja Town Hall’s Environment and Health councillor Javier Rodriguez warned that another Nerja beauty spot, the River Chillar, is best avoided for the time being.
Residents and tourists should postpone their visits until the coronavirus health crisis has remitted still further, Rodriguez said.
