La Herradura has about 3,000 inhabitants, and is the second biggest town in Almuñécar. It has a stunning bay and in recent years has become an important centre for water sports. Situated between the Punta de la Mona to the east and the Peñón de Cerro Gordo to the west, the beach is fantastically located, protected from the easterly and westerly winds. On both boulders there are watchtowers that used to help defend the area against enemy attacks.
It was here that a strong and unexpected attack took place on the invincible ships of the Spanish Armada that were on their way to the Kingdom of Naples and to Algiers. In their attempt to take shelter they approached the Bay of Herradura but a change in the wind caused some ships to collide against others, which resulted in 5,000 casualties. A sculpture recalls the fatal incident that occurred on 19th October 1569. The Marina del Este is located in La Herradura and can moor up to 230 boats. Notary fees and taxes according to law
