When you visit Playa La Herradura Granada Spain, you’ll find a charming old town with pedestrian streets, covered with stone mosaic designs. It offers an incredible village vibe, with a central plaza and an amazing beach.
Most people planning to visit Almuñécar will be flying into the Málaga Airport (AGP) and this means driving from Malaga Airport to Almuñécar. While it is just about a 1 hour drive to the center of Málaga from Almuñécar, I would allow about 1 hour and 20 min from the airport. The Málaga Airport (AGP) is located on the west end of the city and Almuñécar is to the east. Once you are on the highway, it is smooth sailing and easy to reach.
