About the town of Maro

One of the Costa del Sol´s best kept secrets

The small town of Maro is part of the municipality of Nerja Costa del Sol, lying 3 kilometres to the east on the coast with a population of 800. The parish church of Señora de las Maravillas and the Sugar Factory are both 18th century. Maro has a small but beautiful beach set in a cove, accessed via a road winding down the cliffs. For anyone interested in snorkelling, the waters off this beach offer one of the better areas in the region with a diversity of sealife.

This delightful village houses a thriving farming community and is surrounded by lush farmland. Oxen can still be seen ploughing the fields and the backdrop of both the sea and the mountains create a picture which must be so rare in these times it is simply not to be missed.

The village itself has the feel of a bygone era with traditional white washed houses and narrow streets. Locals go about their business with almost no tourism.

We would recommend a visit to this beautiful village on your way back from the Nerja caves which are just up the road from Maro village.
