Pick a sunny day to visit this wacky beach restaurant. Watch the wooden pallets catching fire under huge dishes of paella. Its cooked and served up by ultra friendly and efficient staff. What a fun place for a holiday lunch.

Pretty cove in the center of Nerja. Super beach-side restaurant. Simple, tasty, good value food & drink. Friendly, helpful staff. A lovely place to sit in the shade & have lunch.

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.

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!
