Playa de la Cala el Canuelo reviews
The beach is very nice with a clear water for swimming but the guy packs away the sun loungers and chucks you off at around 6.30pm. As we only arrived in late afternoon, we were obviously not happy. Shuttle bus gets very busy after 7pm so we walked back up, which was actually nice - good views of the beach!
Lovely beach, losses a star for being slightly grubby but way cleaner then further down the coast at Nerja. Get the shuttle bus down the hill is exhilarating in itself and once down there are beds and wicker umbrellas. The beds are surprisingly comfy. Amazing restaurant, portions are huge so I suggest sharing mains if you’re not wanting to be a beached whale!
