Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Playa de la Alberquilla lies tucked away at the bottom of the steep Andalusian coast, surrounded by high cliffs. Here on the Costa del Sol a long gravel path leads to the bay, which is covered with large pebble stones. The natural beauty and peace of this beach is very much appreciated by many local residents. Free from tourist infrastructure, you can spend a relaxed day here because Playa de la Alberquilla never gets really full. Nude bathing is also acceptable among the bay's rocky spurs.

Playa de la Alberquilla - a fantastic natural bay that guarantees clear water and relaxed time out

At the eastern end of the Costa del Sol, around quarter of an hour from the coastal town of Nerja, Playa de la Alberquilla nestles in the rocky coastline of Andalusia. You need a vehicle to get here and you can expect the small car park on the road above the bay to fill up quickly.

From the car park you have to walk down a 500 metre long gravel path. Even from the top you are rewarded with a spectacular view over the verdant rocky coast. At the bottom you will find yourselves in a pebble bay, almost 400 metres long and around 20 metres wide, which shelves gently into the fantastically deep blue sea. We recommend wearing beach shoes and bringing along a snorkel because the clear water is excellent for exploring the underwater world. At the sides Playa de la Alberquilla is bordered by large boulders. These provide the necessary privacy for the odd nude bather.

The beautiful natural beach is situated away from large tourist centres and yet it is easy to get to. You won't find any restaurants or other tourist infrastructure here, but there is plenty of peace and romance for relaxed sunbathing. In the summer months lots of families from the surrounding area come here and you'll also come across tourists from Germany or Sweden now and again. Despite this, the magnificent natural bay of Playa de la Alberquilla is never too full.
