Carabeo beach - Playa de Carabeo, Nerja

About Carabeo beach

Carabeo beach is a small cove that sits directly behind Calle Carabeo. The beach is hidden from view, despite being situated right in the centre of Nerja.

Carabeo beach Nerja 
A place that is often overlooked by the hordes of tourists during the summer months. The steep steps that lead down to the beach also ensure that it stays 'relatively' quiet.

Carabeo beach is surrounded by cliffs and is only accessible via a steep flight of stairs. Look out for a small viewing platform that is situated just off Calle Carabeo. The stairs start here.
