Tosca Musk, the sister of billionaire Elon Musk, has begun shooting her new film, Wallbanger, in Nerja. The South African-Canadian director and producer “fell in love” with the holiday destination, according to the town hall, on a visit this summer, and that is why she wanted to film in some of its most spectacular areas, such as the Balcón de Europa, the descent to El Salon beach and Calahonda beach, among others.
Nerja has once again been the scene of the recording of the program “A Place in the Sun” which is broadcast on Channel 4 in Great Britain, and for the rest of the world on E4, Channel 4+ and More 4.
