El Chorrillo Beach
About usChorrillo beach at Nerja, is a small cove nestled at the foot of the Sierra de Almijara. Surrounded by huge boulders where you can shelter from the sun and seek greater intimacy.
Also known as “los Chorrillos de Nerja” the name given to the three coves that are next to Calahonda beach, which have a total length of 60 meters and a width that varies with the tides.
A beach where you will not be bored, investigating the nooks between large rocks in search of a quieter place or snorkelling in crystal waters where you will discover abundant marine fauna.
To get there you need to cross Calahonda beach, which is reached by a staircase with twenty five concrete steps from the famous Balcony of Europe. Take advantage of this moment to enjoy the incredible views from this vantage point.
Part of the charm of this enclave is the lack of services, there are no restaurants, no showers or hammocks, so you have to come well prepared to spend the day and enjoy nature at its best.
