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. See Balcon de Europa and all Nerja has to offer by arranging your trip with our Nerja vacation planner.

    The best place to contemplate the beauty of Nerja, cliffs and coves. After strolling through its beautiful historic centre, you could not imagine a better climax.

    Nerja is wonderful, its narrow streets you fall in love with its smell of jasmine. The sea views are beautiful, the water clear and transparent. A good place for vacation.

  • Absolutely stunning location for a wedding or any occasion. Unbelievable how nice this place is. If viewing for a wedding, make sure view the downstairs area out on to the private beach. Wow.
  • Food and staff excellent. Room with sea view n spotless. Only complaint is sun bed hogging.
  • Amazing views. Relaxing environment. Nerja is such a beautiful and charming town. Highly recommended. It's two little bays are awesome for a nice day on the beach
  • Fantastic service We always visit on our Nerja holiday, for coffee and snacks. Fantastic service with a smile. Friendly waiters and a fantastic location with a view.
  • Nice views and great atmosphere at any time of the day. It's also not too 'touristy' so it gives a more relaxed feel.

Where to stay in Nerja

Luxury and economy hotels line the water at Burriana Beach, the most popular beach in the city. For a stay in the center of the action, consider lodging at Carabeo Beach along the town's main promenade.
