La Herradura is a traditional Spanish fishing village nestled amongst the mountain range and Mediterranean. Steeped in history it was where the Spanish Armada sheltered and perished in the eye of a ravaging storm.
The Moors left their stamp on the landscape and history behind in the form of a watch tower at the crest of the Cerro Gorda overlooking the village and bay.
The village is only 55mins from Malaga Airport and 65mins from Granada Airport. The ski Resort of Sierra Nevada is only 115mins away door to slope meaning you really can Sun, Sea & Ski in one day from November through to April.
Punta de la Mona is the exclusive headland which overlooks the bay and village and hosted the holiday homes of notable Madrid & Granadian Spanish families as well as ambassadors, famous musicians and artists.
Flecha Negra enjoys an unrivalled position on the Punta de La Mona overlooking not only the bay but also the Mountains that rise up from the bay into the surrounding countryside.
Also the properties are only a 15minutes walk to the beach westerly facing to the Mediterranean.

La Herradura, Almunecar and Nerja offer plenty of eating options and we recommend the following in La Herradura
Twenty 20, Nuevo’s Arenas & Realeango for pizza & pasta & Sardinia. Sardinia being the best beach chiringuito and better daytime for lunch, 20 we suggest for evening dining and the remaining two options are more casual. for special events we recommend Olivio & Bakus in Nerja & Firma in Almunecar
In summer we suggest booking and numbers can be easily be found online
