This beach is a little jem and is very popular as it is just of the Balcon de Europe. Sun beds and sun brolly are available but get their early as they are snapped up by 10am.

Lovely restaurant located down the steps from the Balcon, food was excellent, looking out across the beach towards the sea. Really felt comfortable and best described as shabby chic, not fussy and if your in that, don't go. The drawback for me was having to climb the steps to get back to the town, kinda ruined the meal for me... More

Small beach, and ideal to bring small children down there (except for the trolleys down the stairs, but look at it positively, great workout). Good food at El papagayo just behind you; excellent for a nightswim.

Great lunch, served with a smile ! My rating for this beach centres around the lovely sun- drenched Cafe, where the atmosphere was really lovely !

This place was absolutely awesome, with amazing service and amazing food and cocktails. Without a doubt the best place in Playas, all the cocktails were amazing and this was about the only place on holiday were we didn't get hounded on to go in, a bit more expensive than most places but well worth it for the luxury of this...

We always try to eat here a few lunchtimes when in Nerja. It's on a very pretty beach beside the Balcon, and the food it great!

This beach is situated right under the Balcon de Erupoa. Easy access although a little steep on the way back up. Hire yourself a beach bed for €4.50 per day. Althoug the seas were rough during our visit, it was lovely lazing the day away under the sun.
