Lovely to share Easter festivities from local Church....so moving! To watch men and women of all ages parading and carrying statues of Christian worship was fabulous. Will certainly visit at Easter time again.

I love a decent view, and it's the perfect place for a panoramic - but that's all there is to it. This isn't a bad thing at all because the Spanish have made the most of this beautiful view by adding pubs, restaurants and tapas bars near by, so there's always somewhere to rest your feet once you've got there!

It's just a place, nothing more. But the views and the energetic feeling makes all the difference. Come here at sunset and enjoy the sights of both ocean, cliffs, people and the horizon.

This palm-lined paved projection into the sea is delightful. There are seats with views of the mountains inland and,beyond, the seductive blue of the Mediterranean. It is a favourite place for strolling and, on Sundays, very popular. Here you encounter people of all ages, the elderly, families, young couples and children. There are also a few from the fringes, sitting... More

The balcon de Europa is a beautiful place with outstanding views but several years ago this area was fantastic at night with street entertainers but was outlawed by the council. This I believe was bad for Nerja tourism and the council should reconsider their decision

Always nice to visit this highlight of Nerja. We were there a on beautiful warm sunny day which allowed us to enjoy the views from the end of the Balcon up and down the coast and the inland mountain range. Visited many times and always enjoy the Balcon

Balcon de Europa is a lovely place to while away the time on a warm afternoon or first thing in the morning. It offers lovely views back to the coast and over the beaches on both sides. Luckily while we were there it wasn't too busy but I can imagine the height of the tourist season could be claustrophobic. Definitely... More

At the weekends all the Spanish families go for a stroll in the sunshine so you really feel part of Spanish life rather than tourism. A nice place to people watch.
