Balcon de Europa, Nerja

4.5
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. To visit Balcon de Europa on your trip to Nerja, use our Nerja trip planning website .

  • This is an amazing spot for a day trip and provides with amazing views of the crystal clear sea water. Lots of options to sit down for a beer or meal! Did a family lunch here and spent few hours walking around and admiring the natural beauty
  • One of the nicer beaches that I have been to in Europe. It's rocky and some are sharp, so wear some shoes that you can throwaway if you have sensitive feet.
  • What's not to love, a great square with shops and restaurants, little streets to explore and fantastic views of mountains rolling down to the sea. Great for all ages.
  • What a lovely place. Loads going on and great sea views. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Can get busy with tourists.
  • Nerja is a very picturesque city and the "Balcon de Europa" is a place where you could enjoy the sea view, the charming alley and a lot of bars and restaurants - with one word - Everything!!!
