The Andalucia region

La Herradura (translated as the horseshoe) lies on a beautiful curved bay between the headlands of Cerro Gordo to the west and Punta de la Mona to the east, on the Costa Tropical. This relatively unknown stretch of the costline of Andalucia just east of the busier Costa del Sol, is characterised by the rugged hills and deep ravines behind, with small villages sheltering in the valleys or clinging to the hillsides, with the Pena Escrita national park overlooking La Herradura. Above everything tower the Sierra Nevada, the highest peaks in Spain. La Herradura boasts some 320 days of sunshine a year and is one of the few places where one can ski in the morning (on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada, 75minutes drive) and sunbathe on the beach in the afternoon.

La Herradura

La Herradura, whilst relatively small, does have a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants including a daily fresh meat, fish and vegetable market, supermarkets, baker, banks, chemists, hairdressers etc. Many of the bars and restaurants are situated either on or close to the beach making this the ideal place to idle your days away relaxing in the sunshine. For the more active there is a wide range of watersports including water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving; tennis, hang gliding and horse riding are also available in the village.

Almunecar is just a 10 mins drive away, a thriving spanish town,with its own castle,bird park and Friday market,. The famous slopes of Sierra Nevada are close by and open up until May. The Alpujarres, half an hours drive away for keen walkers . Granada a beautiful moorish town, with the Alhambra Palace which should not be missed is only 1 hours drive. Not forgetting Nerja for its famous caves, 'Balcon de Europe' and night life just 15 mins drive away. and the old quaint Spanish village of Frigiliana, up behind Nerja.

"Comfort,Quiet,Views, all you need for the perfect stay"

A wonderful apartment for our 7 day stay. The owners were very informative about the apartment ahead of our trip. We were met by English speaking Mark who showed us to the place. The apartment was bea… More

"Wonderful time in La Herradura"

Just returned from a wonderful 11 day holiday in La Herradura. It was our second visit to The Costa Tropical and was even better than we remembered.

The apartment was extremely spacious, very clean and very well equipped. Marvellous views from the balcony over the town, sea and mountains. What more could anyone want! Except of course a nice bottle of wine whilst taking it all in!

The sun terrace was a lovely place to laze for an hour or two in the early morning before the sun became too hot.

Roy and Kath were very helpful from the moment we enquired about booking their apartment. They gave us lots of information about the town and even supplied a cd with directions from the airport.

La Herradura and the local people are lovely. It is a small town but with lots to see and do. Great walking area but if you have a hire car you can take yourself up to the villages in the moutains. However, the roads are not for the faint hearted! Some of them get quite high but the views are amazing.

We would highly recommend this property as a base for a holiday in this area
and hope to be back ourselves sometime in the near future.

"Fantastic apartment and resort"

Just back from this wonderful apartment which was extremely spacious and had stunning views. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need (except the chef!) plus two bathrooms. The main bedroom was huge and the lounge very comfortable. The patio overlooked La Herradura bay and although a bit obscured by next doors attempt at some privacy it was still beautiful. The ONLY downside to having such a good view was the steps leading from the town to the apartment - it is very steep but a small price to pay. My thanks to the owners for their excellent directions to the apartment and for the information about the surrounding area which helped us to enjoy it more. We loved La Herradura and this accomodation and will definitely be coming back to stay again very soon.

"lovely place"

It was really nice to stay in el mirador de la bahia. Can't remember whether the ad mentioned it but there are two bathrooms, which was a bonus for us. The kitchen is well equipped and the flat overall is very spacious. The only disappointment was that the view from the balcony was slightly obscured by a spiteful neighbour who had put up a grid, presumably to protect his own privacy but to the detriment of the view from the balcony. Very central in the "historical" part of La Herradura and a short walk to the beach.
