End of season

Arrived late morning and just about everywhere was closed. Which is to be expected. Lovely beach which will no doubt be extremely busy in summer.

Burriana is a typical soft, sandy, southern Spanish beach and I mean that both positively and negatively. Positively because the beach is indeed quite nice, has nice views out across the rest of the bay, and is easy to walk to from most of Nerja. Negatively, because it is easily the busiest and most polluted beach in Nerja and absolutely... More

Went for a walk and found Burriana by accident.Seemed more suited for families with children and looked safe.There were plenty of restaurants along the stretch of beach,so would be easy to try a different one each day! Only drawback about being there was the steep hill which could be problematic for less able-bodied people.However,a bus serves the resort at certain... More

We are having a much needed break in our favourite place. I was expecting some of the beach bars and restaurants to be closed but not as many as there are. Still choices but they do close early at around 18:30 ( who can blame them as there is very little footfall trade). Strange to be here when it's so... More

Very nice and clean beach with all the needed services around. White sand and clear water, also good with small children. Nice playgrounds on the beach!

Lots of facilities here - the bathrooms were mostly very clean and there are several restaurants where you can get lunch (surprisingly good lunch - I had low expectations considering it's on the beach). I visited in November so the cost of renting a lounger and umbrella was only EUR3.25 - I would have happily paid double. Lovely view of... More

Very good beach at the bottom of the hill with most properties and hotels a walk away. Very good swimming beach but beach "drops away" quite quickly. It is definitely worth a visit. Plenty of sun beds for hire at reasonable prices. Plenty of restaurants very close by. Why not have a full day out

Playa de Burriana is a long easy access beach with bars and restaurants on the land side. Gently slopping into the sea. 24° in october and a swim cools you off. Ideal for children to paddle along the edge of the water.
