Great beach with plenty of restaurants on the beach. Just a short walk from Nerja village but there are steep stages back to Nerja village.

One of the many beaches in Nerja - small coves with lovely sand and dotted with beach bars serving cooling drinks and lovely food - lovely just to sit and watch the world go by before heading back to the pool!!!!
