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.

Summers in La Herradura soar into the mid 30’s (°C) during the summer, with very little rain and mild evenings, perfect for enjoying the restaurants or simple soaking in the scenery from your La Herradura accommodation. Winters are very mild, averaging an amazing 18°C, which means that La Herradura villa rentals are a haven from the British wintertime.

Travel to La Herradura, Spain

Beautifully furnished large apartment with side sea views, centrally situated.

5 of 5
We were over the moon with this apartment which is the best furnished and equipped we have stayed in over many years of holidaying abroad. Around 25 yds from the beach it is in a secure, mainly residential, block with a lift. We went as a couple, stayed for a month and could happily have stayed longer. It is a real home from home. There was no problem in having family over to stay for a few days. The apartment is very spacious and the layout is good with 2 bath/ shower rooms, a separate kitchen, and the bedrooms on their own arm of the corridor away from the lounge. It has side sea views from the spacious balcony which opens off the living room.There is also a large roof terrace. Furnishings are in Spanish style and are good quality. There is everything you could wish for in terms of kitchen equipment including kettle, toaster, coffee maker and a washing machine in a separate laundry area. There is ample cutlery and crockery. The living room has books, DVD's, CD's, games, magazines, English TV, and helpful information on the area left by the owners. Hairdryer and non slip bath mats in the bath/ shower rooms and bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided and changed weekly. La Herradura is a lovely laid back village/ town in a horseshoe shaped bay. If you are wanting a nice family resort this may well be the place for you.There are bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets nearby and the main square is just around the corner. The taxi rank is at the bottom of the street. Along the seafront there is a large childrens playground and a daily fresh food market. There are also outdoor gyms on the beach. In addition there is a dive centre and windsurfing but these were closed when we were there in February. The bus network is reliable and cheap. Getting around from here is easy, even without a car, although obviously a car would enable you to do more. Having said that we went to Malaga and Granada on the bus as well as places in between. e.g. Nerja 15 mins, Almunecar 10 mins, Salobrena 25 mins. Booking this apartment was easy and John and Dorothy were really helpful. There is a local agent who speaks fluent English just 100yds from the apartment who was also very helpful. She even came and changed a failed light bulb herself within 2 hrs of us reporting it. Usually we don't go to the same place more than once but we would happily return here, and probably will. Overall a great holiday in a super apartment.
