Balcony of Europe, Nerja

Must see · Observation Deck · Landmark
Appreciate panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline from Balcony of Europe. 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 Balcony of Europe on your trip to Nerja, use our Nerja trip planning website.

  • It's a promenade overlooking the sea. End of. It's a nice enough place but nothing special. Nice local church nearby.  more »
  • This balcony/square is the most centric area of Nerja. The view is fantastic. In the plaza there is a small church, the town hall and a few bars with terrace. A must visit place when coming to Nerja.  more »
  • Quite bad. Not much to do here, nothing special, the restaurants in this place specially inside the plaza, are atrocious to say the least. Nor=t recommended at all.  more »
  • The balcony was great as expected! I would totally recommend to wake up early and watch the sunset while drinking a coffee on the benches around. We visited Nerja during December and therefore didn’t have to deal with crowds and heaps of people. Good to know the restaurant just below the balcony is closed during the winter months. Cheers! ✌🏻
  • A wonderful place to watch the world go by. Great views to sea and inland for that matter. There is a restaurant down the steps at the end of the Balcon, I'm not too sure if it's open or not. You had better check for yourselves.
  • What a beautiful place! Plenty of sun and a wonderful views! I would say it’s a must visit place if you found yourself in south of Spain. There are some great ice cream places around and plenty shops to wonder around. Make sure you get there early, parking might take a while.
  • A absolute unique and Stunning view! While visiting this Region it‘s a must see! Take your time and enjoy the small streets with their locals and tapas bar‘s around the City.
  • Visited during the feria. Great atmosphere, lovely staff and good value for money but why do they keep the toilet locked? Not very helpful in that respect.
