“A 'Must Do' on a visit to Nerja.....”
Review of Balcon de Europa

Balcon de Europa
Ranked #1 of 58 things to do in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We visited the Balcon de Europa most every evening of our stay in Nerja.
Great to see Spanish families and tourists alike enjoying the atmosphere and the view.
The ice creams are to die for!

A little disappointed not to see more entertainment that could be organised by the tourist board. When I went some years back I remember a couple dancing Argentinian Tango...and how about Flamenco and guitar....?

Thank Jacqueline M

This is the hub of Nerja. Lovely views and buzzing at night with families and visitors. The decor in the restaurant needs uopdating, but it was lovely and cool in the afternoon and the staff were friendly!

A picturesque panoramic view of the coast. Central place in Nerja full of life and vibrancy - look out for the local icecream shops!

Stroll out to the end of the Balcon for superb views along the coast and out to sea. It is surrounded by bars and restaurants and great for a "paseo" any time.

I spent two weeks in Nerja earlier this month and visited the Balcon almost every day to simply stand and gaze at the most beautiful image of endless blue skies meeting endless blue sea. Quite stunning. There's a life size statue of King Alfonso there too (he wasn't very tall), which is of course a prime photo opportunity. Down the steps and underneath the statue is Alfonso's restaurant, but there are so many eateries both in the Balcon and in all the streets leading to it that you're spoilt for choice. Just about every cafe and bar there has wifi, in fact I only came across one bar in Nerja that didn't. It's a very peaceful place to sit and relax during the day, even when it's full of tourists, but at night it looks spectacular. Don't miss it.

To the guy who commented in his review that the streets there were filthy, he should come to York on any given weekend.. Better still visit Amsterdam!!
