This refers to the promenade running along a shear cliff face, giving panoramic views all across the bays and coves of the coastline set against a mountainous backdrop. Most Nerja villas or apartments in Nerja have views similar to that of the balcony of Europe.

It's great having a pool and the beaches are just 15 minutes away, the bus costing just 1 euro! The apartment in very clean and comfortable and the position in the village great with lovely views over the mountains. Can't wait to visit again - thanks Paul
