Enjoy spectacular mountain sceneries while you are cruising through fruit valleys, traditional Spanish white-washed villages, and along dramatic coastlines. Serendipitous trails pass along leafy valleys with avocado and mango groves. Costa Tropical is very cycling-friendly with plenty of quiet roads for road cycling. It’s a popular destination for cycling with varied terrain including mountains, rolling hills, a beautiful coastline, and year-round sunny weather. Road cycling offers smooth road surfaces along the coast and in the mountains, lack of traffic, and plenty of beautiful white-washed villages where you can enjoy a coffee or tapas.
You will be staying 3 nights in a small beachfront hotel in the charming village of La Herradura, a hidden gem that is situated around a beautiful bay. The village lies in the stunning coastal area called Costa Tropical, a relatively unknown stretch of Spain’s southern coastline.
After an action-packed day in the saddle, you can enjoy a rest on the beach or even take a refreshing swim. All this in the best climate in Europe. Both the sun and the mountains will energize your body and soul and we promise the views will be stunning!
