Weather was excellent - not too hot. Lovely resort with character and various different coves/beaches. Not much in the way of nightlife other than entertainment in the few large hotels. Good shopping.

Its next to the well-serviced burriana beach but has no services of its own, so we found it a bit scruffy, not the best beach in nerja.

Very convenient for the Burriana beach. Masses of steps so only suitable for the very fit. Rather dated.

Wonderful Spanish resort - full of character. Excellent facilities, including a Snack Bar and Swimming Pool. Very close to the most beautiful popular beach. Has lots of steps down to the beach.

This beach is lovely. Busy, but clear water, clean sand. Very beautiful and a lovely relaxing way to spend a day. Down some steep steps, but well worth the walk down (& up again).

The sea was very clean but loads of small jelly fish near the shore when we were there so had to be careful. It was also quite rough one day so yellow flags flying on the beach because of undertow.
