Fab apartment

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely apartment with great views across the Marina and eastwards along the coast. The owners are very helpful and I would happily stay there again. We walked into La Herradura for dinner a couple of times - just be prepared a steep hill and allow yourself time accordingly - A slow evening walk took us about 40 mins into the centre from the apartment. A little over 5 minutes by car.

Activity and Interests


The marina is about a 10 minute walk and has several excellent restaurants and bars, art galleries and a dive centre. Adjacent to the marina is a small, sheltered shingle beach with safe swimming and some of the best diving in Southern Spain. La Herradura is about 1.5km away and has a 2km long horseshoe-shaped bay and a pleasant beach with several beach bars and restaurants. Almunecar is the main town about 8km away with several large beaches, a water park, restaurants and many other facilities.


Malage airport is 80km to the west with motorway to within 5km of the apartment giving a commute of around 50 minutes. Granada airport is also about 80km but with motorway taking around an hour. However, the airport is much quieter and the drive is spectacular with the towering Sierra Nevada Mountains and beautiful valleys and gorges of the Alpjurras. Due to the quiet location, car hire is strongly recommended for easy access to shops etc and to make the most of the stunning scenery.


Nerja is the start of the Costa del Sol and is 15 minutes drive west on the motorway or 20 minutes by the winding coast road. The beautiful mountain village of Frigiliana is 10 minutes from Nerja. The Marina and local beach are just a few hundred metres away. The main local seaside town of Almunecar is about 8km and the coastal village of La Herradura about 2km. Granada and the Alhambra palace is about an hour inland with many beautiful villages nestling in the Alpjurras en route.

Further Details:

There are several excellent restaurants next to the marina where you can enjoy superb food whilst watching the boats. There are also several art galleries and shops. The adjoining Playa de los Berengueles is a small natural bay ideally suited to diving and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters. It has a lively beach bar where you can enjoy a meal or drink and also hire parasols and sunbeds. The local village of La Herradura stretches out along the 2km long bay with a number of seafront bars and restaurants. The village rises back uphill from the beach with a small market, a jumble of narrow streets with shops and a local supermarket.

Almunecar is a typically old Spanish seaside town, dating back to Roman times, and is overlooked by the remains of an old Moorish castle. The maze of narrow streets in the old quarter are crammed with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants which come alive at night. There is an excellent indoor market selling (cheap!) wonderful freshly caught fish and seafood and an amazing variety of exotic, locally grown fruit and vegetables - it is not surprising the area is called the Costa Tropical!

There are tropical gardens and parks to relax in, plazas with tapas bars and restaurants offering alfresco dining. The palm-lined promenade stretches several kilometres with many excellent restaurants and lively bars. There is also a large Aqua park with flumes and rides, which is open June until September.

Nerja is a 10 minute drive away and is a more developed resort, more typical of the neighbouring Costa del Sol, with sandy beaches and the beautiful Balcon de Europa promenade and pedastrianised shopping area.

The surrounding area is national park with many walking and cycle routes with pretty mountain villages dotted around the Alpajurras and slightly further afield in the Sierra Nevada. The beautiful city of Granada and the historic Alhambra palace are well worth a visit.
