La Herradura (Costa Tropical) lies in a valley with tropical mediterranean climate surrounded by the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean sea. It is this subtropical climate that makes La Herradura an insider’s tip for Spaniards (hardly known abroad). Sports fabs can enjoy their hobbies here in full scope: Tennis, Diving, Paragliding, Mountainbiking, Horse-riding, Tramping, Golf and all forms of acquatic sport are on offer.
With its tight alleyways, the lime-white houses and flower-decorated squares, the ancient town of La Herradura is an important center of attraction. Vacationing in La Herradura does not only offer the excellent opportunity of learning Spanish, but also offers the opportunity of practicing your favorite sports, meeting people as well as learning much about Andalusian culture and way of life. Delicious Tapas and barbecue dishes can be enjoyed directly in beach restaurants and in the village.
