Access to the beach is either via some very steep steps, not suitable for anyone with mobility problems, or by walking along the sand from Burriana beach, a bit further along. It is 117 steps from the top to the actual sand.
This is a nice sandy beach, relatively quiet due to the slightly difficult access and a great place if you want to get away from the crowds and hustle-bustle.
Obtaining refreshments means either going up the steps to the kiosks, bars and restaurants or walking along to Burriana beach where, being Nerja’s premier beach, everything is available in abundance.
Alternatively, you take your own refreshments!
- Beach showers
- Lifeguard (in summer)
Overlooking Carabeillo beach is the Mirador del Bendito – viewpoint – which affords great views out over the Mediterranean, down to Carabeillo beach and along to Burriana beach. Vine-covered pergolas provide shelter and it is a great place to relax after the strenuous activities on the beach.
