Burriana Beach

Burriana Beach

Burriana Beach


This is probably Nerja’s principal tourist beach and as a result offers the most services of all the nearby beaches. The area is quite built up with four/five storey buildings immediately behind the sea front however this is not a sprawling urban area as cliffs prevent further development. There are numerous bars and restaurants to choose from ranging from traditional outdoor Chiringuitos to more international establishments. Immediately behind the beach you’ll find a paved promenade, followed by a line of restaurants/public areas, a road that runs the length of the beach (which also includes parking) and a further line of restaurants and bars.

The beach is well equiped, is covered by lifeguards, regularly cleaned and suitable for families. It also boasts blue flag status.

How to get there

From the bus station found on the N340 you need to follow the road north from the roundabout passing the petrol station on the left until you reach a second roundabout. Go straight across this but choose the smaller road to the right instead of the main road in the center. Follow the road ahead until you reach a second roundabout. At this point you need to turn right, if you chose the right hand lane whilst crossing the roundabout you should now be in the correct lane. Upon turning right you’ll find yourself at the top of a long hill. This will take you straight down to the beach front so simply continue ahead until the road flattens out and you come to a T junction on the sea front. The road is one way and you may be able to find parking here.
