La Herradura, a lively small village
La Herradura (“horseshoe”) is situated in a spectacular bay on the foot of the Alpujarra mountain range. Some 70km east of Malaga and 50km south of Granada, this small but lively town has a 3 km stretch of beach and boulevard, several restaurants and it offers diving and other water sport activities. It has 3 good beaches in the vicinity. On the east-side there is a small harbour.
Punta de la Mona, the green spit of land on the east side of the bay, has a light house, a restaurant and is a villa area. La Torre is situated at the very south side of the Punta, 10-15 minutes on foot from the centre of La Herradura.
La Herradura is lively all year around. In the winter many pensioners stay there to enjoy the weather, which is the best of all continental Europa. With more than 300 days of sun shine and an average temperature in winter of close to 20oC, the climate in La Herradura and its surroundings are even better than the rest of the South coast. In summer it doesn’t get all that hot because of the light sea-breeze. In the summer La Herradura is very lively, but since it has a limited capacity and no high rise, it never attracts the mass-tourism like on the Costa del Sol.
The surroundings of La Herradura
Eastwards of La Herradura (8 km), in the old town of Almunecar, there is much to see and do. From here a road leads into the rough and spectacular mountain range and Rio Verde, a beautiful gorge.
Granada is only a good 50 minutes away. Apart from the world famous Alhambra, it has a very beautiful city centre. Near Granada is the Sierra Nevada. With the highest mountain 3400m, it offers great skying opportunities in the winter and hiking is possible all year round.
West of La Herradura (15km) one can find the old and pretty town Nerja with its “balcon d’Europe”. In between La Herradura and Nerja are grottos that people can visit all year.
Inwards from Nerja lies Frigiliana, a town of white houses and narrow streets nestled in the mountains.
Further west is Malaga with its airport. It is only 50 minutes away from La Herradura because it is all motorway.
