Fodor's Review

The highlight of Nerja, this tree-lined promenade is on a promontory just off the central square, with magnificent views of the mountains and sea. You can gaze far off into the horizon using the strategically placed telescopes, or use this as a starting point for a horse and carriage clip-clop ride around town.

We LOVE Nerja....a small town on the Med Sea. The Balcone de Europa is a beautiful promenade with amazing views of the Sierra Nevada behind you, and the sea crashing to the rocks below in front of you. We have been here three times (from the US). We love the sunsets and seaside cafes. There are quaint shopping streets leading into the town square where bells peal all day....lovely. A gem of a town!
