Ladera del Mar is a modern hillside urbanisation about 3km from the centre of Nerja, the Balcon de Europa.

The nearest beach, a small sandy cove, is about 500 metres away and there is a small restaurant about 1km away.

The nearest shops are in Nerja or Torrox Costa, both roughly 3 kilometres from the urbanisation.

Renting a car is definitely a good idea if you are staying in Ladera del Mar.
