Playa de la Alberquilla, Nerja

4.4
#7 of 9 in Beaches in Nerja
Crescent-shaped and overlooked by steep cliffs, Playa de la Alberquilla lies tucked away in a pebbled bay that slopes gently into the sea. The pristine, all-natural beach with no amenities has to be accessed on foot via a gravel path that meanders down from the small parking lot next to the road. Rocky spurs on both sides of the bay provide privacy to occasional nude bathers. Bring water shoes and snorkeling gear.

  • As we must lower walk has less people than Cantarrijan or Cañuelo, but for my taste is as good as the other two. Highly recommended, especially if the other most famous are full.

  • I expected a difficult access and what I found was a horrible access. Pebble Beach in and out of the water that make it difficult to enjoy it. Full of garbage. I will not.

  • Super clean water!
  • Access somewhat complicated but enjoy very good day at the beach. If you like diving, I recommend it.
