An unspoilt Andalucian coastal village
Despite its proximity to Nerja and the sea, Maro is practically untouched by tourist development, and has very much the feel of a small, agricultural village.
Many of the fields surrounding Maro are cultivated by local market farmers, as they have been for centuries and you are likely to see the local goat herder wandering past with his goats, their bells tinkling, or a farmer driving his oxen home from the fields.
Maro has some of the best natural beaches to be found on any of the coasts of Spain. In fact the beach closest to the village itself – La Calla de Maro – was voted number 1 in Andalucia, and even came second in the whole of Spain!
