  • Remote gorgeous beach - we went on saturday at 10.00 - enough parking places still - walked down (there is also a bus) - super pretty, we rented beds (12 euro for 2 beds + parasol) - 2 bars available (go to the big one, avoid the one at the entrance)
  • Lovely beach between Nerja and Almunecar. Long walk down (and up after a nice day on the beach) from the parking, but in the summer there’s a small van that brings you and your beach gear down and up again for only € 2,00. Crystal clear water, two nice beach restaurants, mix of small stones and sand, easy to walk on barefoot.
