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 truly fantastic place worth to visit. Inspiring settings. Nice beaches. Clear waters. If you come by bus, you can just walk down and find it easily. Truly highly recommended.
  • Came on day trip. Stunning scenery. Lovely atmosphere in the Square under the trees. Lovely shops. Spent way too much but hey was on first holiday
  • Beautiful area, Images taken January.Not everything is open but enough is. Better weather than the UK that's for sure. Be aware there are a lot of hills up away from the beaches.
  • Just amazing. Fantastic location on the promenade with a nice clean and large room, helpful and friendly staff and a superb pool area with sun longers an infinity pool and a jacuzzi. There's also a lift that takes you direct to a private beech with more sun longer. Definitely recommended
  • Wow! This place is so beautiful. The views are amazing and the waters beneath the view point are just breathtaking
