Nerja and Verano Azul

Nerja and Verano Azul are the same, because the series directed by Antonio Mercero marked a before and after. Because the series launched the town to international stardom.

Although the series premiered in the autumn of 1981. Since its premiere the series has been the representation of the dreamed summer holidays for many Spaniards born after the dictatorship. 

Because who wouldn’t want to spend a month on the beach with a gang of friends who whistle happily while they ride their bikes.

Verano Azul is one of Antonio Mercero’s greatest successes because he managed to capture the aspirations of many young people and capture them on television. And also because of TVE’s tireless revivals.

The scene of the dream holidays is Nerja, a village in the region of La Axarquía de Málaga. In which the team lived during the year and peak that lasted the shooting. Some locations were recorded in other towns such as Motril or Almuñecar (Granada). But the main reference is the town of Malaga.

The protagonists are:

  • Quique
  • Pancho
  • Bea
  • Desi
  • Javi
  • Piraña
  • Tito

They form a gang of kids of different ages (from infancy to pre-adolescence). All but Pancho are with their summer families in town. Besides making friends with each other, they discover two references that will change their idea of what it is to be an adult.

One is Chanquete, an old fisherman who lives in a boat stranded on the beach, La Dorada 1. 

And the other is Julia, a painter who spends the summer alone there. 

Besides, neither of them have anything to do with their parents and that also makes them friends and confidants.

Watch out Spoiler

During the 19 chapters of Blue Summer the kids discover the value of friendship, first love, the importance of taking care of the environment… 

All this under the sun, at the sea, on vacation and with happy endings, except for the Chanquete incident, which still brings tears to the eyes of the audience.

A curiosity is that the series does not say his name at any time.
