Balcon de Europa, Nerja
(4.1/5 based on 3,800+ 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.

  • A must visit. Stunning views, romantic sunsets and a really friendly atmosphere. Lots of street artists and performers. We will come back.

  • 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.
