Playa El Salon–a pleasant town bay that is small and exquisite

This delightful beach can be accessed through a wide pathway of Nerja. It is approximately five minutes from the popular Balcón de Europa and it is close to the popular Irish Pub "Cochran's". Wheelchairs can access the wide steep route, which is surrounded with planted tall palm trees. The promenade is surrounded by beautiful tall trees that adds to the beauty of the beach. 


As you head towards the water the pebbles increase, the lovely beach is surrounded by rocks that are not too high. The beach of Playa El Salon have 200x20 meter’s surface of smooth sand and the water quality is superb. You can get a bit of privacy between the rocks surface. The water shines with beautiful blue tones and it is cool and transparently clear and this attracts tourists who want to snorkel and dive. On either side of beach there are isolated boulders which make diving and snorkeling a-must activity.

The back of the beach is overgrown with bushes and trees. There are several hotels and apartment complexes found along the cliff surrounding the beach.

On the dry sand, lies two or more little fishing boats waiting to be used for their next outing and there is a small beach kiosk found in between the small private fisherman's cottages. There are rows of loungers and sun umbrellas available for rent especially during the summer months. There are also public toilets and showers on the Playa El Salon.

Your safety and your children’s safety are guaranteed because of the presence of lifeguards on the beach.
