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.

  • Lively location in central Nerja, great area to visit, terrific views. Sadly, the Balcon is not looking it’s best, viewed from underneath it’s rusting and is in desperate need of renovation. As...

  • Lovely scenic place to visit in central Nerja. Great place to wander, take photos, look at the beautiful scenic views or sit on the many benches and watch the world go by. We visited in low season in early March and it was very busy compared to other areas so clearly very popular.
  • It’s truly fantastic place worth to visit. Inspiring settings. Nice beaches. Clear waters. If you come by bus, you can just walk down and find it easily. Truly highly recommended.
