Great Beach
Oct 2019
A really good beach close to the balcon de Europe. Water really clear, sunbeds available and toilet and shower facilities. Ideal.

Nice small beach
Oct 2019
This beach links to another small beach on the opposite side of the Balcon. Unfortunately, Nerja doesn't have a joined-up system of boardwalks like many towns and it's not possible to continue further north-east or south-west. Access is via a broad flight of steps from one side of the Balcon. Steep walk down, worth the effort.

If you love the beach you’ll love Papagayo
Oct 2019
We’ve had half a day here. Beautiful turquoise water and lovely gold sandy beaches . We’ve had nice walks on cliff tops with beautiful views on Fuertaventura A bit of an off-road to get there but that’s make it even more exciting.recommend to spend day here.

Not too crowded. Parked up the road and two minutes walk to the beach. turquoise water. Showers, changing rooms, toilets available. nice little house built on the side of a rock too. Sandy but there is a bit of sea weed. Beds are EUR 5 for the day.

Very nice rather small beach next to the balcony de Europa. Local fisherman still operate from here. Weekends local Spanish people come to this popular beach.

Best beaches in Lanzarote
Jun 2019 • Couples
The Papagayo beaches are my favourite on Lanzarote, be prepared to pay €3 well worth it. There are various beaches and coves, dependent on the tide you can walk round the rocks or across the top. Blue sparkling water, great to explore with a snorkel. Lots of boats to see. Amazing and spectacular views.
Would suggest taking a parasol and a cool bag with drinks and snacks. There is a restaurant but it is right at the top.

Walking along river Chillar. A great walk with lots of interesting shrubs & views

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Nerja but I am absolutely astounded that the sea is filthy & could not swim any day with the raw sewerage floating on the sea. What I am flabbergasted over is the fact that the tourist office & business people are not insisting that they get the sewerage plant up & running regardless of cost. Nerja is the only town that pumps raw sewerage into the sea. Forget about your plastic & deal with Raw Sewerage. I was advised not to swim in the sea. SHAME ON YOU NERJA TO ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.!!! ITS 2019 & has gone on for too long.

Central location
May 2019 • Couples
This is a cute little beach just by the side of the balcon. This means it is in a great location if you are staying in the centre of town but it is only quite small.

It appears to be being developed at the moment. For years, there was a scruffy rundown restaurant on the beach but that has been knocked down now and some clearing has begun.

It is ideal if you have your own towels and beach equipment to spend just a couple of hours in the lovely sun.

Unattractive scrub detracts from a pleasant beach
Feb 2019 • Couples
Confusingly this beach is known by two names - Papagayo/Calahonda. Anyway, since our visit last year I would have expected the local council to at least made some attempt to beautify the overgrown scrub area leading up from the beach, especially when you consider it’s directly beneath Balcon de Europa and all the tourists who visit and peer down onto this small cove. Ok, so the derelict cafe building has been removed but that’s about it. Access to the beach is through an arch on corner of the Balcon and down wide stone steps (from where you can also walk round underneath the Balcon to Playa El Salon on the other side). Beach area is quite small, especially if the tide’s in. At one time a path led along to the next beach northwards but has been closed since rock falls made it dangerous. With a little effort this area could be so much better.

Not Papagayo any more!
Aug 2018 • Couples
The town council has compulsorily purchased the site and cleared most of the rubble. Let's hope that they get on with improving it. This is one of the best sites in the town, and deserves to be looked after.
