Activities on the Costa Tropical

Great things to do in and around La Herradura

Sailing on the Costa Tropical.
We can arrange for up to 12 people to be invited on-board for an unforgettable trip on our new yacht "Optimist of London II", a luxury yacht anchored right here in the marina at La Herradura. Relax in comfort and watch the spanish coastline slip by as you set sail in the warm, crystal clear waters of the southern mediterranean.

Dolphins are a regular sight here and often swim over to the yacht....always an amazing experience. Sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking scenery as we cruise the coastline here on the Costa Tropical, stopping for lunch in a quiet secluded bay. You have the chance to take the helm under the guidance of our qualified skippers, or just lay out, soak up the sun, swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters teaming with sub tropical fish & sealife.

For the more adventurous, take a ride in our high speed rib, try out the exciting donut or even waterski. More information and Sailing charter prices >>

Golf on the Costa Tropical.
Three golf courses are within easy reach of La Herradura. These are not championship courses but are located in beautiful surroundings and are substantially cheaper than some of the more prestigious courses around Marbella. Two examples are Moriscos at Salobrena and Bavieria at Torres Del Mar.

Moriscos is a links course situated just off the beach with views of the Sierra Nevada. Bavieria is a beautiful course with sea views - both have excellent faculties.

The courses are a 25 minute drive from La Herradura along the N340 motorway. Clubs and buggies can be hired.

Master Guitar Building Classes
Guitars on the Costa Tropical.
Interested in music? Why not try an intensive master guitar building course in a professional Spanish environment. Taught by the experienced, world famous teacher and professional guitar maker Stephen Hill. See his website at for further information.

Tennis on the Costa Tropical.
There are many tennis courts where visitors can play. Two courts are available on Las Palomas. One of which is attached to our Apartments in "Los Girasoles".

Another is located at The Marina Del Este. These can be booked in advance and are inexpensive.

La Herradura Riding Centre
Riding on the Costa Tropical.
Highly recommended is family run riding school in the tranquil setting of the Spanish countryside.

They are located only 5 mins from Almunecar and 10 mins from Salobrena - Just off the N340 on the Costa Tropical. They offer an enjoyable riding experience in safe hands.
