scenic views and plenty going on.

The views are good, there are plenty of shops and eating places. Lots of shops to look around. Anice central church that usually has a wedding or some function going on.

This is the central spot to meet family and friends whilst in Nerja! Have a drink or enjoy your ice-cream whilst taking in the dazzling sea views come day or night. You can relax and watch the world go by or get caught up in the fun of the street vendors and bustling atmosphere. Either choice it's definitely worth a... More

A scenic central point that makes navigating the confusing narrow Nerja streets a little easier! Lovely bars and restaurants as well as photo opportunities. Also a great focus for all those celebrating New Year in Nerja. Fireworks, live music and crowds of enthusiasts of all ages celebrating together. Mucho cava drunk, lots of grapes eaten but still great atmosphere and... More

A stone's throw from the town centre, this is a great place to go and enjoy the stunning views, or take in the sunset.

We would highly recommend a visit to Nerja at any time of year but we have just brought in the New Year at the Balcon de Europa and the atmosphere was amazing! Beautiful Christmas decorations surrounded the whole town and the New Year was brought in with live music which stopped in time to hear the countdown to midnight with... More

The Balcon de Europa in a traffic-free promenade from the main square in Nerja that leads to an outlook over the cliffs. You can see the entire coast line from the Balcon and several beaches. There are dramatic rocks ... and spectacular waves when it's stormy. There are benches along the promenade and restaurants ... and small flowerbeds in the... More

Nice views, seating on the Balcon to watch the world stroll by! Plenty of places to get food or a drink close by. Brilliant at New Year!

Please be careful there are many drunks here and beggars from Germany.they congregate at the beginning of the Balcon and in the streets leading to it.The other troublspot is the Mirador de Bendito which has become a spot for the drug dealers of Nerja and attracts drinking sessions every day.These are becoming larger and noisier every day

I visited Nerja for a day trip and headed straight for the Balcon de Europa. It's easy to find as there is a palm tree lined path heading right out to the site. The views were incredible. You can see right out to sea and on such a clear sunny day I wasn't disappointed. There are plenty of restaurants close... More
