La Caletilla is a small, dark sandy beach immediately to the right of the Balcón de Europa.
It is only about 50 metres long and 15 to 20 metres wide, depending on the tide, and as well as being a public beach, it is also used by the Hotel Balcón de Europa for its guests, the Hotel providing the services.
Access to the beach, for non-Hotel guests, is via a walkway from neighbouring Calahonda beach and then down some steps.
It is essentially a small cove and if the sea is a little rough, or the tide is in, the water comes right up to the hotel terrace and the beach completely disappears.
The Bar and Restaurant El Nautico, part of the Hotel Balcón de Europa, has a fair sized terrace overlooking the beach, a nice setting for a relaxed lunch.
