Playa Burriana

Playa Burriana is a large sandy beach in Nerja that stretches for around 800 metres in length, and averages 40 metres in width. It has been awarded the European Union’s Blue Flag for cleanliness and facilities on multiple occasions, as well as being a repeat recipient of Spain’s equivalent Q for quality award.

Seeing thousands of local and foreign visitors each year, Playa Burriana has excellent facilities, including showers, children’s play areas, and beach volleyball nets. It’s also possible to get involved with a range of water sports, from jet skiing to pedalos hires, kayaking to parasailing.

Playa Burriana is backed by the Paseo Marítimo Antonio Mercero promenade, which comprises a line of restaurants and bars. On the opposite side of the sands, the waters off the beach are clean, but become deep quite quickly.
