This elegant apartment block. primarily Spanish and British owner occupied, is located on a hillside facing South and overlooking a secluded beach with a select beach cafe/ restaurant..equipped with WIFI and loungers. The beach is renowned for mostly still waters and snorkelling and scuba diving. It is entirely safe for children and has a paddle boat /kayak rental facility in the summer months. The marina is 5 minutes walk (or drive) and has several good restaurants, a small supermarket, pizzeria, divng centre etc. Nearby La Herradura village with its beautiful horse shoe bay has bakeries, supermarkets, local daily mrket, banks and shops and the open beach can make a nice change. There are several attractive coves along the coast in both directions. For walkers and nature lovers we recommend fine walking areas on little used local roads or tracks in the hills behind the resort area, ideally for evening walks to see the magnificent sunsets and coastal/mountain views, and capra hispanica if you are lucky.

Almuñecar, 10 minutes drive, is an old moorish town with its castle, Roman remains, typical quarter with botanical gardens and boutiques, tapa bars and restaurants. The modern part has several family attractions including a waterpark, aquarium, parrot park, a big weekly flea market and 3 large supermarkets. A long modern promenade is good for family evening excursions and beach restaurants.

A little further on is lovely Salobreña, perched on a rocky outcrop with its own attractions, especially an excursiont to the castle top and floodlit explanade winding one's way along flower decked old moorish style narrow streets. To the West, 10 minutes drive on the motorway lie Nerja and Frigiliana, a typical moorish white hillside village.

Wunderschönes Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Es ist wirklich eine wunderschöne, gepflegte, grüne Apartmentanlage.

Das sehr geräumige, sehr gut ausgestattete Apartment mit herrlichem Blick aufs Meer ist super.

Die Beschreibungen und Fotos versprechen also nicht zu viel!

Laptop für Internetzugang mitbringen! W-Lan ist im Beach Club am Strand und in vereinzelten Restaurants im Ort vorhanden.

Die idyllisch gelegene Bucht ist ideal zum Schwimmen und Schnorcheln. Das Wasser ist glasklar und sehr sauber. Liegen im Schatten kosteten nur 5,- pro Tag (im Oktober).

Vermieter sowie Kontakt vor Ort sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Insgesamt also sehr zu empfehlen.

Herzliche Grüße aus Germany

superb apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Norman (the owner) and Rachel (his agent) for our stay in the apartment. This high-class, stylish apartment has everything you need for a vacation. The apartment complex is very well supported and provides easy access to the beach.

I will definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and relatives.

Ideal for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from two relaxing weeks at the apartment. The pool just outside the apartment was excellent and never busy. The beach is lovely and we all enjoyed swimming, snorkeling and crab fishing as well as daily icecreams from the kiosk on the beach! Car is essential for supermarket shopping and for trips out. Our two teenagers and 7 year old enjoyed the waterpark at Almunecar. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable with great views off the terrace, and the owners provided good customer service.

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family spent a wonderful vacation in this apartment in La Herradura. It is absolutely a wonderful and well-equipped apartment with a fantastic view over the sea, a very nice pool area, where our kids enjoyed to swimm every afternoon during our week.

A very nice apartment for 6 persons, a lovely large terrace. We would like to come back and spent our holidays again in your apartment next year.

Best regards,

from Denmark:-)

Great apartment - Great views

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a very relaxing and pleasurable two weeks in this lovely apartment. The apartment was very spacious, well presented, comfortable,and well equipped. The large terrace was the highlight of the property with beautiful views over the bay and beach, in the sun for most of the day but having plenty of shade available if needed. Another advantage is that there are views from every room with the other side of the apartment overlooking the pool and down the coast to Almunecar. The pool is large and well maintained with an attendant present during the day, it has a large grassed area and was never busy when we were there. A short walk down through the complex led directly onto the lovely beach. I don’t think there are any other places in a better location in this area with the marina practically on the doorstep and both La Herradura and Almunecar close by. The owner is helpful and had a friendly local British couple on hand for additional assistance. We could not fault anything and I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment.

Marina del Este is a quiet scenic location near a secluded beach adjacent to a small pleasure boat marina with mountains behind it. The sheltered beach is a favourite for scuba diving, as well as snorkelling and safe swimming. There is a charming 'chiringuito' on the beach equipped with loungers and inside/outside eating facilities, and WIFI. Nearby on the way to the A7 motorway junction La Herradura village is situated on a large sheltered bay with market, shops, banks, out of doors cinema and several restaurants. Almuñecar town 5 Km and Nerja -spectacular caves - 10 Km by car are favourite tourist attractions with countless boutiques, restaurants. There are also beautiful 'white villages' (eg. Frigiliana) up in the hills a short drive away. Málaga and Granada cities, the latter with the famous moorish Alhambra and access to the Alpujarras mountains and Sierra Nevada with 3000 meter peaks are only one hour's drive. From Málaga you can take the ferry across the straits and visit Tangier, or Melilla frrom close by Motril.
