This family-friendly holiday beach is situated in the east of Nerja on the Costa del Sol. At Playa de la Torrecilla you'll find ideal sand and water conditions spread out between the rocky outcrops in the south of the hotel district. From there several streets and steps lead you to the 300 metre long sandy beach. A small palm-lined promenade runs along the back of Playa de Torrecilla and is home to two excellent restaurants where you can partake of authentic Spanish delicacies.
Playa de la Torrecilla - a well frequented bathing beach with ideal water conditions
Playa de la Torrecilla is located on the Costa del Sol in Andalusia and is one of several beaches in the popular tourist town of Nerja. From the pretty coastal town's hotel district lots of little streets and steps lead you straight to the beach, which awaits you with 300 metres of the finest, light sand and ideal water conditions. Flanked by two rocky outcrops, the family-friendly urban beach has clean, clear bathing water, lifeguards, an area with loungers and sun umbrellas, and showers and toilets.
The promenade is shaded with palm trees and entices you to linger a while on its inviting benches. You can walk along it to the ruins of an old fortified tower, from which the beach derives its name. On the beautiful promenade you will find two restaurants. In the stylishly furnished Chiringuito Torrecilla 3 you can indulge in tasty fish dishes and other delicacies, and in the somewhat more rustic Cabas Merendero you can sample the grilled sardine skewers for which the restaurant is well known. You will find more restaurants, cafés and shops in the streets behind the promenade.
In the summer months it can get very busy here. Holidaymakers from Spain, Germany, Great Britain and France appreciate this centrally located beach, which is compact and has everything you need. When the wind is strong you'll see the odd surfer on Playa de la Torrecilla as well. The conditions here are very good for surfing, particularly in late summer and autumn.
