Nerja beaches: the small bays near Burriana beach

The idyllic town Nerja, which is located about 30km east from Casa Erica, has a lot to offer: From the dripstone cave (Cuevas de Nerja) over the picturesque narrow streets in the center, to the beautiful beaches. A trip to Nerja, during daytime to take a stroll of at night for dinner, is definitely worth it!

Between Balcon de Europa, a observation platform in the city center of Nerja and the wide Burriana beach are stunning bays. I’ll tell you how to get to the bays in Nerja further down in that post.

The secret path to the picturesque bays of Nerja

You can start at Burriana beach: If you look towards the sea and walk right along the water, you will get to a wall. It can look a little dodgy sometimes here, but as soon as you climbed over the wall your adventure has already been paid off. Over a few steps you get from bay to bay and you can explore the beaches of Nerja.
