Beautiful beach, not over developed. A couple of eateries, handy shuttle-bus from car park. 10-15 mins from Nerja. Worth it.

It is more convenient if you have a car to go to this beach but the nearest car park is small so getting there early is recommended. The beach is on the bottom of the hill from the car park so you have to take...More

Nice beach for everyone. A bit pity that the way between the beaches is run down and closed. And full of garbage. But you can still go. Just don‘t go barefoot, there is allot of glas.

Small beach hidden in a rocky cove. It's worth waiting for the shuttle bus as the path down to the beach is steep and relatively long. There is good snorkelling around the rocks at the far end of the beach and a half decent restaurant/cafe...More

A lovely wild beach with a nice nature around, it's not a sandy beach but with pebbles, nice for walks in the nature; the water is cristal clear and you can observe many fishs; nice for snorkeling and to go with children.
