El Playazo

General Description

This is a long and wide open beach with great views along the coast to the neighboring town of Torrox. Located on the western fringe of Nerja this is a distinctly less developed beach compared to some of the others in the area and is generally less popular with foreign tourists. Directly behind the beach is a well established dirt road followed by farmland. This beach is not overlooked by multistory buildings. There are some bars and Chiringuitos however the selection is limited. There is excellent access for vehicles and ample parking is freely available. The beach is covered by lifeguards and regularly cleaned.
