What to see The old quarter is a fine example of traditional Andalusian seaside architecture. You'll discover stunning landscapes and famous landmarks such as El Balcón de Europa (The Balcony of Europe), where you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea. Another place to get panoramic views is La Torre de Maro, one of the many old watchtowers that stand along the coast. Anyone visiting the area simply has to visit the incredible Cave of Nerja, also known as the “Prehistoric Cathedral”. The underground caverns stretch for almost two kilometres and there are even Palaeolithic paintings. Every year, a festival of music, dance and performing arts is held in the cave. Beaches The area has many beaches of fine, golden sand. One of the best-known is Burriana beach, which is some 700 metres long. You can also enjoy the warm Mediterranean Sea at the beaches of La Torrecilla, El Salón and Calahonda. The latter is right below El Balcón de Europa viewpoint. There are also many picturesque coves nestled amid towering cliffs. We especially recommend visiting the coves known as La Caleta, Cala Barranco de Maro and Las Calas del Pino. Gastronomy The local cuisine is largely based on fresh fish, creating such mouth-watering dishes as grilled Burriana sea bream or fish with clams and paprika. Other local specialities include “ajoblanco” (a cold soup made from almonds, olive oil, garlic and grapes) and noodle casserole.
