“Probably the best beach in Nerja, with easy access to restaurants as well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

This beach is very clean with a nice family-friendly atmosphere, plus good shower facilities to wash in after swimming. Just behind the beach are shops / restaurants so you're well catered for.
And the well-regarded Ayo restaurant has great lunchtime-only paella.
To the west side of the beach are rocks offering some shade from the sun and access to the smaller alcove beach - Playa Carabeillo - for those looking for more privacy (see my pics).

“Well serviced for a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Some great restaurants and coffee shops. The beach wasn't too busy and there were play areas for children. Parking not so easy though so went about 2.00 pm when quieter.

“Perfect sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

This was so nice the sea was calm and clear and perfect to swim in. Good range of shops and cafes and the beach is very clean.
Down side is that it is a bit of a trek up and down to the beach.

“Gorgeous beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Playa de Burriana is awesome....... make sure to get the Paella at Ayo's...... and don't hesitate to get a massage from one of the people offer it. It's luxerious.

“Nice beach with plenty of cafés”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We spent a couple of days at Burriana beach during our recent visit to Nerja. This is a lovely beach with a relaxed vibe and plenty of places to get a tasty lunch and a cold beer. There were lots of people around even in March so I imagine it gets very busy during peak season.
