Nice small beach. No facilities though and a steep walk down to it. Nice sand and was OK for a swim. Follow signs for Cochrans bar off the square where the church is and walk down to it.

It says "good bathing" in the heading, but you need to be sansible if the sea's rough. No beach café since the local laws banned them. The entrance to the long slope down is very close to the Balcón de Europa, but easy to miss.

Beach is to one side (right) of the Balcon de Europa headland (Papagayo Beach is on the other) and although smallest of the two it’s more attractive - probably due hotels being directly behind and lack of scrubland. Access is reached either via the narrow...More

Our hotel overlooked this beach and though it is literally below the town square, I would skip this beach. Instead, walk about 15-20 minutes through town over to much more beautiful, scenic, well appointed Burriana Beach. However, for photos, walk at sunset, etc. this spot...More

Just a short walk brings you to this nice beach. It is a good place for a swim but beware the increase in depth.

This is a fantastic location, just off the main square in Nerja. It's not the biggest beach and yet, when we were there (October) it was never too crowded. We went there on four or five days. On a couple of days I noticed that...More

Unlike other reviewers I did not particularly like this beach. The beach itself was fine, only saw raw sewage on one of our days there. However you were told in no uncertain terms that you could not get a bed until after 9.00 am. most...More
