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.

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.

                                                                                                We have just had a great holiday staying in this lovely clean and very well presented villa. There were 8 of us (4 couples) and we had both the villa and the apartment together. The facilities and amenties were ideal, and the layout and different social areas were perfect to enable everyone to hang out together or find a quite corner to chill. We had planned to venture out and about quite a bit but ended up spending much more time than anitsipated just lazing around the villa enjoying the pool and the glorious weather we had. Although La Herradura istself offered plenty of lovely tapas bars & restaurants we only enjoyed 2 or 3 meals there and mainly enjoyed taking turns to cook and barbeque at the villa. You can probably buy everything that you need from La Herradura but we drove 5 or 10 minutes the the large Mercadona which had absolutely everything. (We went a bit overboard so the pool guy was very appreciative of the 3 bags of drink and food items we passed on to him as we left). The villa is very quiet and private and we enjoyed lovely evenings watching the fabulous sunsets from the terraces, and gazing at the brilliant starry skies. There is a large garage for each the villa and the apartment and we got a 9 seater transporter in without any problem. The beach is not great as it's all pebbles but we didn't miss it at all because of the pool (beach towels provided at the villa so no need to take any). For anyone with walking difficulties please be aware that it is an uphill walk from La Herradura to the villa and the lift at the villa is not in use. Tips: Make sure you try and visit lovely Nerja which is not far away and is buzzing with lots of little back streets of shops bars and restaurants. Try and book any tickets for anything you want to partake in before you leave home as the Wifi is a bit sporadic at the villa. If you decide to travel to Granada don't take a 9 seater transporter as you will not get parked anywhere! (lovely drive there through the Sierra Navada though). If you are really in need of chicken nuggets or pint of cider then check out the little british bar behind the white market buillding in La Herradura called 'The Hideaway Bar'. Overall, I know I speak on behalf of all 8 of us when I say that we would definately recommend this property and we wished we had stayed 10 nights instead of 7.

A very well maintained & equipped villa. We had no concerns about the safety around the pool as this could be locked off when there was no adult supervision. Keighley was very friendly, informative and obliging. We ate out in Herradura on a number of occasions and found a good selection of places but having hit the end of the Spanish holidays it was very busy & we needed to book, especially being a party of 9 plus baby. A noticeable difference in the village after August 31st. The uphill walk back from the village might be too much for some people, especially in the heat.

We enjoyed watching the sunset from the balcony and views across the bay. The property was well presented, clean and tidy with everything you need for a relaxing break. All bars, restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Most of the beach bars have been renovated (since our last visit) for the better and are worth a visit for a drink, sun lounger or to eat. Oscar provided great customer service and responded quickly to any problems/queries that we had. We will hopefully return.
