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.

  • Tuesday 10th of May and we visited the coastal town of Nerja. No visit is complete without a walk around the iconic Balcon de Europa. This clifftop walk was once the site of the 16th century...

  • A great way to start a great day. There it stands before you in all its spectacular, the glorious sea all around you absorbed in glorious pollution free air. After the idyllic experience is over you are surrounded by restaurants and shops galore along with folks eager to serve you.
  • Beautiful! Well done to those who conceived and designed this. Overlooking two splendid beaches. What a pleasant place to hang out. Be choosy about where you eat or drink though
