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.

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.

La Herradura is not only a beach resort. Rural tourism and agro tourism has begun to take off in La Herradura.

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.

                                  Excellent villa in perfect order, excellent location, wonderful views, safe environment, adequate parking for at least two cars. Great attention from owners' local representative. Could not be better.

                                  Everything about Las Palomas was perfect. The villa was exactly as advertised. Instructions were clear and helpful. And the weather was amazing. Las Palomas is perfect for staying with children. Everything you need is there - high chair, pool toys, plastic dishes. I would definitely recommend Las Palomas to anyone I knew heading to the area.

                                  The view, especially of the sunset, is magnificent

                                  What a fantastic view. Lovely property with plenty of space so that you can be together or chill out on your own. Good furnishings. Well appointed property with good facilities if you want to cook. But, with so many excellent restaurants in Herradura or Nerja you will want to eat out. Road to the property has a number of sharp bends and a steep climb (how else can you get to the view) but not much traffic so quite safe. If you want to shop for food etc. there is a great supermarket on the nearside of Nerja - call in on your way back. Good guide to local area is provided. Granada is well worth a visit and so are the Nerja Caves. Lovely infinity pool but water quite cold in March!! Two good areas for eating/drinking outside depending on the time of day but balcony space as well.
