Playa de la Cala el Canuelo reviews
This is a beautiful and clean beach. We spent hours snorkelling as the water is crystal clear and the marine life is amazing! more »
good for snorkeling with clear waters. nice beach for relaxing not too busy. playa maro is were they rent out kayaks etc. a good walk on a path down the steep rocks to come there but it is worth it more »
The beach is very nice with a clear water for swimming but the guy packs away the sun loungers and chucks you off at around 6.30pm. As we only arrived in late afternoon, we were obviously not happy. Shuttle bus gets very busy after 7pm so we walked back up, which was actually nice - good views of the beach!
Lovely beach, losses a star for being slightly grubby but way cleaner then further down the coast at Nerja. Get the shuttle bus down the hill is exhilarating in itself and once down there are beds and wicker umbrellas. The beds are surprisingly comfy. Amazing restaurant, portions are huge so I suggest sharing mains if you’re not wanting to be a beached whale!
