If you are looking for adventure, look no further. The towns of La Herradura and Almuñécar are amongst the most popular places along the Spanish coast for paragliding or paramotoring. You will often see clusters of beautiful, multi-colored parachutes gliding slowly down from the mountains over the palms and restaurants towards the Playa La Herradura.

La Herradura is the most popular landing site in the area. Its location by the coast, protected by the surrounding mountains, allows for perfect glides that set off from high cliffs and descend onto its quiet horseshoe-shaped bay.

The warm winds that come from Malaga (to the west) or Almeria (to the east) help make the Costa Tropical perfect for all sorts of gliding activities. Numerous gliding zones can also be found in Almuñécar, Salobreña, Otivar, and the surrounding mountains.
