Create an itinerary including Playa del Molino de Papel
Named after the nearby ruins of a paper mill, Playa del Molino de Papel remains a pristine, secluded pebble beach surrounded by cliffs and lapped by crystalline waters perfect for snorkeling. A small river mouth overgrown with reeds divides the stony shore into two coves. Follow a narrow, steep footpath from the parking lot that leads down into the bay to get to the beach. Since it slopes quite steeply, watch your step when entering the water or wear water shoes. There are no amenities on the beach, so pack everything you need, from refreshments to snorkeling gear. Put Playa del Molino de Papel and other Nerja attractions into our Nerja sightseeing planning app, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Small beach with pebbles and rocks. You need to have proper shoes to get into the water. Easy access to the beach. You can leave your car on the side of the road and walk the rest.
  • Pebble beach especially popular with wave surfers, rare to find a good wave break in the Mediterranean.
