“Unusually beautiful place on the Costa Del Sol”
Review of Balcon de Europa

Balcon de Europa
Ranked #2 of 58 things to do in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I was staying in Torremolinos, a few miles down the coast from Nerja, and had the fortune to come up to here to visit a friend, I got off the bus and started walking into the town centre, the first thing I saw was this what looked like a big Plaza, but as I walked out, I realised it was actually a really big 'Balcony' that looked out over the surrounding area, quite a nifty idea so local councellor must have had back a few years ago to pave and fancy up a headland. it really is one of the memories of spain that will stay with me, Nerja is actually a really nice town, and if I am back down in the Costa del Sol again, I will stay here rather than in overly tack and commercial Torremolinos.
As for the 'Balcon' it just adds more class to an already classy place.

Great place to visit either during the day or at night when the street performers come out to entertain. Nice icecream adn the opportunity to get a portrait/caricature of the family. Also a bit of space where kids like to run about. You will see lots of cats that live in the area...

Magnificent view over the Mediteranean and on a good day you can see Africa !

Lots of restaurants near by to have a drink or some lunch. There is also a small beach either side that you can walk down steps to - albeit, it is quite a distance if you are with eldery relatives.

Stunning location and beautiful views over the sea. The walk to the end is lovely too although there appeared to be tonnes of cats??

An excellent place to spend a little time enjoying the views and taking some snaps. Have a coffee in a bar or something stronger and watch the people go by.
