The Maro Beach, in Nerja, is also known as Cala de Maro, which is considered one of the best beaches of Spain

Maro Beach is a hidden gem among the cliffs of the natural area of the Cliffs of Maro, agricultural land from which you can see the remains of an ancient Arab watchtower enclave. All this gives it a special wild charm.

Possessing a coastal strip with a protected area does not have additional services available, so you have to be cautious and bring everything you need to enjoy a relaxing day at the beach.

Its waters are perfect for snorkelling or diving and discovering impressive array of existing marine fauna. You'll be amazed by the number of fishes you can get to see, so do not forget your glasses for diving.

It may also be interesting to go for kayaking; making a route in Burriana and Maro will offer a different and spectacular view of the area. There are many waterfalls in this area, as formed by the River Guaro, making it the greatest waterfall of Maro. Also, you can visit caves formed with the same limestone that led to the famous Nerja Caves.
