The coastal town of Nerja in Spain has at least ten beaches, or playas, and one of our favorites to visit last summer was the genuinely lovely Playa el Salón.
To reach Playa el Salón, just follow the inlaid path which leads off to the right of the Balcony of Europe and you will soon see one of Nerja's informational beach signs indicating you've arrived.
My kids immediately climbed to the top of this cool rock formation by the water and demanded a photo of the achievement:
The beach sand is a bit coarse, but at least it's not shingle, and the Mediterranean water was a nice, mild temperature on this hot July day.
I love the way the building below is built into the cliff - I think it's a bar, however I can't imagine why it would be closed in the summer.
My daughter and I found it quite picturesque.
This is my Photo Friday link-up post to DeliciousBaby.com.
