Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Nerja / Balcony of Europe
Appreciate panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline from Balcony of Europe. Built originally as a fortress to protect from intruders, the viewpoint now serves as the focal point of the beautiful coastal town of Nerja. From the top of the structure, you have a bird’s eye view of the local swimming beaches and can also spot the famous village of Maro, site of the Nerja Caves. Walk the bustling promenade that leads to the viewpoint to find several shops, restaurants, and accommodations. To visit Balcony of Europe on your trip to Nerja, use our Nerja trip planning website.

A wonderful place to watch the world go by. Great views to sea and inland for that matter. There is a restaurant down the steps at the end of the Balcon, I'm not too sure if it's open or not. You had better check for yourselves.
