  • The Playa El Salon has an easy access near the city center. It has space and we spent a pleasant day there.

  • El Salón Beach is one of Nerja’s larger beaches with over 200 meters of sand and surf. This beach generally won’t be extremely overcrowded as there is only one way to get to the beach and the access road can be difficult to find so it can be a nice quiet place to relax and listen to the crashing waves of the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Small and very clean beach, get here early to get a good spot
  • Very nice and calm beach with not so many people (in September!). Clean!
  • This is one of Nerja's lovely beaches. It's 200 metres long, and can get busy. It's down a slope and is close to the Balcon del Europa.
  • Absolutely gorgeous place, cosy, nice and familiar. Epic surroundings. Loved it.
