Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in La Herradura, Spain your home away from home

The tourist capital of the Costa Tropical, Spain, is the area surrounding La Herradura and neighbouring Almunecar. Although the Costa is far less known that its famous neighbour, the Costa del Sol, La Herradura, Spain is no less exciting than any of its Costa del Sol counterparts. Lying in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada, La Herradura is a hugely attractive village on an even more pleasant crescent shaped bay.

Things to do in La Herradura, Spain

With 19km of varied coastline, visitors to La Herradura holiday villas are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. With small secluded coves covered in sand, shingle and pebble beaches or large, fine sand beaches where water sports thrive, you are certain to find your little peace of heaven by the sea from La Herradura accommodation. Of the vast number of water sports available, scuba diving is one of the most popular, exploring the underwater world off the coast of La Herradura. When staying in a La Herradura holiday villa, rent windsurfing or sailing equipment or enjoy water skiing and para-sailing.

La Herradura is not only a beach resort. Rural tourism and agro tourism has begun to take off in La Herradura. The rich natural landscape is perfect for horse riding, (the stables in Taramay offer trekking, lessons and excursions), hiking and mountain biking. There are moderate trails or tough mountain trails into the Sierra Nevada for all three sports. Alternatively, you can take to the skies and try parapenting.

Golfing holidays to La Herradura are not the most well catered for, but if you are looking for a round one afternoon, the 18 hole golf course at Granada is an hour away, or there are two spectacular 9 hole courses closer by at Salobrena.

Evenings from a La Herradura holiday villa can be spent in a huge number of ways. There is frequent evening entertainment during the summer, and a range of fiestas which spring up throughout the year. Year round, La Herradura has jazz bars, nightclubs and bars which can become very lively!

Places to go on holiday in La Herradura, Spain

Almunecar, the sister resort to La Herradura delights visitors on three fronts. The beaches are a major draw, and have made Almunecar a vibrant holiday destination, and the rich history from the Roman ruins to the mediaeval castle of San Miguel and Almunecar make for fascinating viewing. However, it is the huge Loro Sexi Bird Park which draws the majority of visitors to a self catering La Herradura villa to make the trip around the coast.

Salobrena is a picturesque whitewashed village which sits in the shadow of a dominant Moorish castle. The fine beaches and idyllic traditional lay out have made Salobrena a real tourist favourite, and snorkelling, diving, golf and fishing facilities on offer too.

The accommodation, in terms of configuration, comfort and equipment met and exceeded all our needs and expectations. The location is perfect, a relatively short walk to the town and the beach where we spent lazy days snorkelling around the rocks and just lying, soaking up the warm sunshine. Yes, it is an uphill return journey but even I, the grandfather of the party, didn't find it a challenge. And the icing on the cake was the incredible sunsets. Whether viewed from the property itself or while enjoying a drink in one of the many cafes and bars they never ceased to amaze and we had a competition to see who could capture the best photo on our smart phones and cameras. For a half term break, we simply couldn't have chosen better.

It is located at the top of the old town in a peaceful residential area. The property is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. There is a large balcony with superb views of the bay.. It is perfect for relaxing, sunbathing, eating out,. We really enjoyed watching the stunning sunsets as we drank a glass or two of wine. Perfect.! La Herradura is a lovely unspoilt laid back Spanish seaside town. There is a good range of eateries, small supermarkets, market. There are good walks, beautiful coastline and mountains - a perfect base for exploring this lovely area of Spain

Rachel, the managing agent, was great. She had produced everything we asked for in our shopping list, and greeted us late on a Saturday night, so we could enjoy the weekend without having to worry about supplies. She had even thought of a few things that we hadn’t, and gave us plenty of tips on local bars and restaurants and sights to see. The villa is stunning, spacious, peaceful and relaxing; a great place to spend time as well being in a secluded location with a great view. I wish it could have been available for a second week. The collection of artwork and furniture is lovely and makes this place feel much more like a home to be enjoyed and cherished, rather than just another villa.
