La Herradura holidays

Originally famed for giving the Spanish Armada refuge from a storm, the pretty harbour and curving horseshoe bay of La Herradura is better known these days as a hotspot for sporty types and sun seekers. This small resort has bags of charm among its streets of gleaming white houses with blue-shuttered windows.

Hit the sands

Darkened sands and pebbles make up the beach here. Windsurfers often flock to get the best of the waves, but it’s great for diving and chiringuitos, too. Shop, eat paella and sardines around the seafront, and don’t miss the gorgeous sunsets as the sky unveils them.

See it all

Potter along the promenade and explore the quaint streets of the town centre. The 16th-century Moorish castle, San José Church, and Plaza Nueva all warrant a visit, but neighbouring Almuñécar is the bigger sibling for sights. Historic landmarks await as well as shops and scenery galore.
