Nerja Torrecilla RailingsThe latest phase of the improvement works at the promenade along Torrecilla beach in Nerja are coming to a close with a new wall and stainless steel railings having been installed along the section running east from Plaza Cangrejos towards El Salon beach. The old railings had rusted badly in the salt air and in one place had gone completely (see photo below), leaving a small drop down to the cliffs underneath.

The total cost of the new railings is €130,000 and is being funded by Nerja Council itself, despite having asked the Coasts Department to pay. The council claim that as it was the Coasts Department that specified and fitted the original railings 13 years ago, which have deteriorated badly in the harsh sea air environment on the promenade, then it should be the Coasts Department that funds their replacement.

Torrecilla Nerja Railings

In April 2012, the first section of railings at Torrecilla were removed and replaced with shiny new tubular stainless steel railings. The final section that will be replaced is on the western end of the promenade, near to El Chucho beach.
