Playa de la Alberquilla, Nerja

4.4
#7 of 9 in Beaches in Nerja
Crescent-shaped and overlooked by steep cliffs, Playa de la Alberquilla lies tucked away in a pebbled bay that slopes gently into the sea. The pristine, all-natural beach with no amenities has to be accessed on foot via a gravel path that meanders down from the small parking lot next to the road. Rocky spurs on both sides of the bay provide privacy to occasional nude bathers. Bring water shoes and snorkeling gear.
