marobeach18A few kilometres outside Nerja on the old N-340 coastal road,  is the lovely little village of Maro. It is still within the municipality of Nerja, so the beaches are classed as Nerja beaches.

It is quite a steep road down to the beach, but well worth the effort. Overlooking the beach, perched on the hill, is one of the old Moorish watchtowers.

The area has a unique ecological system and the natural environment is heavily protected. Because of its uniqueness, the waters in this area are popular with recreational divers and Buceo Costa Nerja, located on Burriana beach, make regular trips to Maro for those who are interested.

Kayaks also operate from Maro beach, all under the supervision of experienced monitors, for those who want a little trip around the area.

A Merendero provides all the necessary refreshments and sustenance, including full meals.
