Balcon de Europa, Nerja

(4.1/5 based on 4,000+ 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.

  • I was in this place since it was something very essential according to the comments and recommendations of the vast majority of tourists, in my opinion if very nice views and the panoramic view that you can observe from this place but it was not something that you can not see in many places of coast in Spain, if it is a nice site but neither it's okay if you don't go to this place It is said that if you haven't been to Nerja and you have not seen the balcon de Europa, it is as if you had not gone to Nerja.

  • If you are in this area of Costa del Sol you must visit the Balcon. It is a nice place with a good atmosphere and a fine view of the coast 
  • Although it rained us views are impressive, the coast is beautiful and the area with much room. Recommended for a walk at dusk.

  • Perfect for visiting the Centre of Nerja. Relatively expensive. The parking lots and streets are too narrow and, especially in the Central streets, parking is rather complicated.

  • It has very good location and the facilities are very good.

  • I didn't like the parking. Good thing is that is in the Center and it is comfortable because of the closeness but do not accept card payment, something which I think is very rare and mostly because if you let the car several days these high amounts. The person who was at the checkpoint was quite bit sympathetic to any question.
