At just 9 kilometres as the crow flies from Nerja – Cantarriján Beach is set in the National Park of Cerro Gordo in a natural bay surrounded by steep slopes seemingly far from civilisation. The beach is nudist – but clothing is optional and it is well worth a visit during your stay in Nerja! Everybody is welcome!

The beach is 14km in the car along the N340 coastal road in the direction of Almeria. During the summer months, you need to park in the car park directly on the N340 road and take the minibus down to the beach (2 euros per person). From September through to June you can drive all the way down and park directly behind the beach.

There are two lovely chiringuitos directly on the beach where you really can relax and chill out – La Barraca and Bola Marina. Both serve great food, drinks and also offer sunbeds with beach drinks service! 


This spectacular beach is nestled between Cañuelo Beach to the east and La Herradura to the West – we would well recommend a day trip along the coast to experience these natural delights!
