The apartment is a brand new flat situated in 'Los Altos de las Maravillas', a small development situated at the top of the old town overlooking the bay of La Herradura and is just a short walk (450 metres) from the charming beach of this laid back Spanish coastal town. The accommodation is equipped to a high standard and is ideal for a couple, being spacious and offering an excellent level of comfort and privacy. It has a large double bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and a sitting room that leads on to a large and sunny terrace, orientated in a south west direction. Air conditioning is fitted, providing cool air in summer and warm air in winter. Guests will be delighted with the quality of the interior, but what makes the accommodation Opazo Beach View special is the large terrace and the view - it is all about the view! La Herradura is a delightful place for a holiday at all times of the year. Much quieter than its more famous neighbouring town of Nerja it has a genuine Spanish feel to it and has a number of bars, restaurants and beach eateries that are open all year. It is situated at one end of the Cerro Gordo Natural Park, a beautiful stretch of protected coastline, outstanding for its natural habitat and picturesque scenery. It makes an ideal base to explore the inland coastal area of the Almijarra Natural Park and the delightful towns of Frigiliana, Cómpeta, Almuñecar and Salobreña. Visits to Granada and the fabulous Alhambra palace are easily managed as part of a day's excursion, and from December to April a day trip to the Sierra Nevada ski resort is very possible. Locally you can enjoy sports such as scuba diving, windsurfing, dinghy sailing and paragliding, or just enjoy soaking up the sun from one of the choice of beaches in the area, whether the town beach of la Herradura with it palm trees, the charming beach situated close to the Marina del Este, or the undeveloped coastline of the Cerro Gordo with is hidden coves where naturist bathing is permitted.

About Robert King
We have lived in Spain since 2003, at Cortijo Opazo, which is located up in the mountains of Las Alpujarras, but not too far from La Herradura (about 80 minutes in car). Over the years we have got to know the area and have explored the coastline, from east to west. In our opinion La Herradura is the best location to be found between Almeria and Malaga, very Spanish, warm and friendly and in an area of extreme natural beauty. This is why we have chosen to invest in our third property rental, so we now offer coastal and mountain destinations. Most of our time is spent working in our garden at Cortijo opazo, but when we want to relax, then La Herradura and Opazo Beach View is where we go.

Why Robert King chose Almuñécar
We really like this town, it is easy to get to, has a good selection of bars and restaurants, the town is right on this great beach but it seldom feels busy or 'packed out'. We thought about buying in Nerja or one of the other towns, but our heart wasn't in it, La Herradura is where we want to be when not up in the mountains.
What makes this Apartment unique
The terrace and the views are the two great things about this property. It has been well furnished and is just a comfortable place to be. There's even a pool if you want it!
Pool / Spa
Very comfortable and a great view
Good, well-appointed appartment with an excellent view of the bay. At the time of year, pleasantly quiet. Good support from the owners. Hope to come again!
Really lovely flat. Good location, good view, well designed.
Superb indoors and fantastic views!
This is an excellent apartment, well equipped, very comfortable and in a beautiful position to view the sea and this wonderful little Spanish town.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. All communications were timely and comprehensive and the information provided beforehand and then during my stay was useful and informative.
I would certainly like to return!
We had a fantastic holiday at Opazo Beach View, the apartment is really classy and well appointed with everything you need whether eating out or fully self catering.
The view from the balcony is stunning and we made a point of sitting there with a cold drink taking in the sunset on most evenings.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our accommodation, you can never tire of those fabulous views. Hope to hear from you again.
Best apartment ever
Nice to meet you guys - the apartment was lovely - equipped with everything you might need and nothing you didn't. Dips in the pool were very welcome - especially after the climb up from the beach in the midday heat!
And what a view!
Thanks for your positive comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely apartment and location
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment with its superb location. The apartment was as described, clean and well maintained. The terrace is a lovely size with fantastic views of the sea, mountains and La Herradura below. Unfortunately the weather was unsettled during our stay and we were not able to use the terrace as much as we would have liked.
This is the third time we have visited this area but the first time we have stayed in the centre of town. We loved how we could walk down to the shops and restaurants without needing to use the car. We found the walk down is lovely and quaint although some might find it fairly strenuous walking back. We took advantage of using the garage parking and found this very convenient and secure. The instructions provided for the apartment and garage were very straightforward and helpful.
We certainly love this part of Spain and the variety it offers – from small unspoilt white villages in the mountains to the natural park of the Cerro Gordo with the pretty coves and beaches on your doorstep.
We would certainly recommend the apartment to our friends and family.and look forward to returning in the near future.
Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, we are pleased that you enjoyed staying in the flat and liked its quiet location.
