Balcon de Europa, Nerja

(4.5/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline from Balcon de Europa. Built originally as a fortress to protect from intruders, the viewpoint now serves as the focal point of the beautiful coastal town of Nerja. From the top of the structure, you have a bird’s eye view of the local swimming beaches and can also spot the famous village of Maro, site of the Nerja Caves. Walk the bustling promenade that leads to the viewpoint to find several shops, restaurants, and accommodations. See Balcon de Europa and all Nerja has to offer by arranging your trip with our Nerja vacation planner.

  • Beautiful views and close to a great ice cream parlour with some of the best ice cream I've had. The dark chocolate and oreo is a must have
  • The Balcon is a good spot after dinner for an ice cream. Great meeting place and often crowded, particularly in high season.
  • nice little resort town by the Mediterranean. Comes alive during the summer. Some good views, but better even to visit the neighboring Frigiliana, a few KMs north.
  • Go here of an evening, see a magical sunset, plenty of area for everyone to move about, at Christmas it is even more magical. Enjoy it i sure did.
  • Fantastic place with wonderful views. I love it!
