Bubble Blowers Calle Carabeo NerjaCalle Carabeo in Nerja is one of the most upmarket streets in the town, running along the clifftops between the Balcon de Europa and the western end of Burriana beach. The street itself was pedestrianised in 2009 and there is only limited car access for residents and deliveries. There is a large (pay) car park just behind Calle Carabeo and if you are staying or visiting somewhere on Carabeo itself you should park in the car park, as most Carabeo properties have no parking.

Calle Carabeo is lined on both sides by old houses, the largest and grandest being on the sea side of the street. These houses enjoy spectacular views out over the Mediterranean, the Balcon de Europa and the cliffs of Maro. A few of the houses have been converted into hotels and hostals, including Hotel Carabeo 34 and Hostal Tres Soles. Either of these would be a great place to stay in Nerja, with easy access to the bars and restaurants in the old town and also to the nearby beaches.


At the eastern end of Calle Carabeo there are steps down to the western end of Playa Burriana. This end of the beach is known as Playa Carabeillo and you can walk along the beach from here all the way to the far end of Burriana, with its beach front bars and restaurants.

There are another set of steps and a viewpoint over Playa Carabeo – this small attractive beach has few facilities, other than a shower, toilet and a kiosk selling drinks, crisps and ice creams. If you want to rent a sun lounger you need to go to Playa Calahonda, a few minutes walk down yet more steps from the western end of Carabeo. Calahonda also has a beach restaurant, Papagayos.

Bars & Restaurants

Carabeo has a small number of bars and restaurants, most with terraces. The ones on the southside of the street have spectacular clifftop views out over the sea. Restaurante 34 and Los Barriles both do tapas and there is also an Indian restaurant, The Taste of India and an Irish bar (the Harp). Little Italy does pasta and pizza at bargain prices and Bakus is an upmarket restaurant at the Burriana end of the street. Carabeo joins Calles Pintada and Cristo at its western end – both of which have many bars and restaurants to choose from.

The Balcon de Europa is just a few minutes walk from Calle Carabeo and has many bars and cafes dotted around it.
