La Herradura

La Herradura, together with Almunecar, form the tourist 
area of the Costa Tropical. This relatively unknown 
stretch of Spain’s southern coastline belongs to Granada 
province in Andalucia, It lies between the more populous 
Costa del Sol to the west, and the coast of Almeria to the east.

The tropical bay of La Herradura is one of the most beautiful 
bays along the south coast of Spain. Unlike many areas along 
the coast, development has been restricted in height, which 
allows you to enjoy the contours of the natural setting. The 
village presents a typical aspect of whitewashed buildings 
climbing the gentle slopes of a small hill leading up from the 
beach. In recent years, the village has expanded eastwards 
along the shore to the foot of the Punta de la Mona, fronted by 
a procession of restaurants, bars, and shops.

La Herradura is located 50 minutes from the airport in 
Malaga and 1 hour from Granada. Snow skiing in the nearby 
Sierra Nevada is just over 1 hour away. Along the 19 km of 
local coastline, visitors can choose from a large variety of 
beaches and small coves, ranging from fine sand to shingle.

Watersports are very popular and there are numerous 
businesses offering different types of courses and equipment 
hire. Divers will find some of the best underwater scenery here 
of anywhere along the southern coast. La Herradura has an 
incredibly beautiful, private and remote naturist beach named 
Cantarrijan, only 10 minutes drive from our hotel making us 
the closest hotel to this beach.
