Road Map and Tolls
A beautiful journey in your transfers from Malaga airport to La Herradura
Currently, the A7 motorway passes through the municipality of Almuñécar, to which the town of La Herradura belongs. The section that goes from the town of Maro (which belongs to Nerja, Malaga province) to Almuñécar (Granada) was opened on 2007 and. The complexity of the terrain on which the current motorway sits as it passes through the town delayed its arrival for a long time.
Also the lack of political will affected, prolonging the wait. This made it difficult to communicate and transport by road from Malaga airport to La Herradura until recent times.
One of the greatest engineering works on the Spanish map
You can verify, as a user of the transfer service, the great engineering challenge that this work involved. Perhaps one of the most expensive roads in Spain, with a similar cost per kilometer to the high-speed train tracks. There are numerous tunnels, several bridges as well as several slopes skilfully drawn between ravines. The road winds between hills and cliffs until you reach the old town of La Herradura.
Not any toll costs in Costa Tropical
The highway that leaves from the airport of Malaga towards the Herradura runs through part of the Costa del Sol and Axarquía. Shortly before arriving at your hotel or destination, we can find beautiful natural spaces. These are the Natural Park of the Sierra de Almijara and the cliffs of Maro-Cerro Gordo on the beach line. In addition, tropical crops such as avocado and cherimoya abound in the area. These tropical fruits are very common, where you can taste them in the restaurants in the area. You can also see some properties climbing the hills. These are usually rustic houses or villas that belong to private land. Small areas of land where families have crops with little agricultural production.

The N340 national road that goes from Nerja to La Herradura is a beautiful road full of natural beauty. It goes under the new highway, through the natural park of Cerro Gordo. However, it is a slower and unsafe road so your driver will not use it unless necessary.
