Additional Location Information

The apartment is just a 3-minute walk to the beautiful beach of La Herradura. There can't be many places which afford such an expansive view of the sea from your living room, as well as a 180 from the terrace.

There's a lot of beachside activity including water sports, and the neighbouring towns of Almunecar and Nerja have a lively nightlife. Nearby Torrox boasts "the most sunny days in Europe".

La Herradura is one of the few remaining unspoilt villages on the southern cost of Spain and offers a truly Spanish experience. The village of La Herradura (The Horseshoe) takes its name from the shape of the bay it overlooks and enjoys over 2 kilometres of beach. On the eastern arm of the bay is the beautiful headland of Punta De La Mona (featuring some of the most exclusive properties in the whole of Spain), Marina Del Este, providing stylish mooring for the yachts of the rich and famous and, to the west, the dramatic outcrop of the Cerro Gordo.
La Herradura is just a few kms from Almunecar and 10km from Nerja, though prettier and more private than both. It takes between 5 and 10 minutes to drive along the coastal stretch into Almunecar, and a little more, in the opposite direction to Nerja. Some of the Costa Del Sol's best beaches, such as Cantarrejan are just a 5 minute drive away.
La Herradura is a private, though quite lively town in the summer with beach cafes and restaurants, all contained within a pretty bay. There's plenty of night-time activity in the summer including clubs which stay open 'til late, though neighbouring Almunecar does have more options.

Being in the province of Granada, this means that tapas comes free with any alcoholic beverage… drive 10km west towards Nerja and you’re in Malaga province, where you have to pay!

HOW TO GET THERE – To get to La Herradura your best option is to fly to Malaga, though Granada also has an airport, (each airport is about 50 minutes drive from the house), from there you can hire a car here for as little as 20 euros, or 15 pounds a day, or take one of the regular buses to La Herradura. (Airport bus to Malaga followed by coach to La Herradura).
The obvious airlines include Monarch, BA, easy jet, Jet2, air europa, Spanair, Ryanair and other such companies. Try Skyscanner for comparisons.
