Known down the coast as one of the most exclusive and expensive places to live, the area consists mostly of larger homes with private gardens and pools. The Punta first started to be developed for holiday homes in the 1950s. Most properties have amazing views of either La Herradura bay or neighboring Almunecar.

Getting There - Photos
Located on the opposite side of La Herradura from Cerro Gordo and making up the eastern arm of the bay, is the Punta de la Mona. The Marina del Este is located on its eastern side sheltered in a cove.
Like the Cerro Gordo point, it is also capped by its own torre (tower) which is now used as a lighthouse. Covered in Pine trees and colorful Bougainville, the whole urbanization has a very lush and tropical feel to it. The neighborhood is very well known and sought after and it’s a beautiful place for walking.

During the summer months rentals are very popular here. The area is optimal for those needing a little more space, larger groups or those just wanting to live in luxury during their holiday. Town is only a 15 – 20 minute walk down the hill, but a car is recommended. There are also high end luxury condos available.
A new hotel has recently been built in the center of the Punta. It is equipped with a full service spa as well as three (3) large swimming pools and game rooms. The hotel is packed with amenities and located in a great spot not far from the popular Playa Berengueles and Marina del Este.
The award winning community of La Aldea resides in the upper most part of the Punta de la Mona which also deserves a visit.
