La Herradura is an old Spanish fishing village, remarkably unspoilt by modern trends and developments. It boasts a large horseshoe bay (La Herradura is Spanish for horseshoe) and a strong Morrish influence in the architecture of the 'old town' area of the village. Popular with Spanish and Northern European Tourist alike, and retaining it's charm and culture, it must have a claim to be one of Spains best kept secret!
La Herradura built around a sheltered bay and beach shaded by numerous palm trees. It has a beach front which is about 2 km long, which is home to many restaurants and cafes. In addition to the many beaches in the area you can charter a yacht in the Marina del Este, hire sailing dingies on the beach at La Herradura, play golf at several good courses (20 Mins by car), play tennis or go horse riding locally, or join one of the many scuba diving centres. Our bay is part of a maritime nature reserve, famous for the clarity of its water and many points of interest.
Punta de la Mona is the eastern peninsular which forms part of the horseshoe bay. On its eastern side lies the Marina, to the west (the main view from the Casa Valderrama) are spectacular views of the bay and back along the coast to Malaga, and wonderful sunsets! Punta de la Mona is an exclusive location favoured by both Spanish and international owners, who are drawn by its scenery,views and the perfect climate.
There are two larger towns either side of La Herradura. Almunecar, 5 kilometres to the east, and Nerja, about a 15 minute drive to the west. Both offer many shops and fine beaches. The city of Granada and the world famous Alhambra Palace is just over an hours drive north as are the stunning Sierra Nevada mountains with skiing available in the winter. Near Nerja are famous caves boasting the worlds largest stalagmite/stalagtite column and caverns.
Two golf courses are about 20 mins drive away. Braviera near Veliz Malaga and Los Moriscos on the Playa Granada at Salobrena.
