If you are looking for adventure, look no further. The towns of La Herradura and Almunecar are amongst the most popular places along the spanish coast for parapente or hang gliding. You will often see clusters of beautiful, multi-colored parachutes gliding slowly down from the mountains, over the palms and restaurants below, towards the La Herradura beaches. La Herradura is the most popular landing site in the area. It’s location by the coast, surrounded by mountain ranges, allows for perfect glides that set off from high cliffs and descend down onto its quiet horseshoe shaped bay. The warm winds that come from Malaga (to the west) or Almeria (to the east) make the area perfect for any kind of gliding activities. Numerous gliding zones can also be found in Almunecar and Salobrena, both in town and in the surrounding mountains.
