Nice small beach. No facilities though and a steep walk down to it. Nice sand and was OK for a swim. Follow signs for Cochrans bar off the square where the church is and walk down to it.

One of Nerja's best beaches unfortunately inhabited by some families who are occupying old fishing huts at the back of the beach. Very anti-social at times and allowing their dogs to play on and foul the beach at will. We are residents of Nerja and always avoid this beach which is a shame as it is
one of our closest.

It says "good bathing" in the heading, but you need to be sansible if the sea's rough. No beach café since the local laws banned them. The entrance to the long slope down is very close to the Balcón de Europa, but easy to miss.

Beach is to one side (right) of the Balcon de Europa headland (Papagayo Beach is on the other) and although smallest of the two it’s more attractive - probably due hotels being directly behind and lack of scrubland. Access is reached either via the narrow cobbled alley leading from near the church in the square or along the short promenade below Balcon. It was a nice sun trap when we visited mid January but the water was definitely not warm enough for swimming!
