Cerro Gordo is a protected natural area on the far western end of La Herradura, on the border with Málaga..

This part of the coast was declared Paraje Natural in 1989 and occupies some 400 hectares that are distributed between the provinces of Granada and Málaga.

At the top of Cerro Gordo there is an ancient watchtower where you get fantastic views of the coast: to the east, the beach of La Herradura, and to the abrupt cliffs.

Right on the border with the province of Málaga, you can find the Cantarriján, a nudist beach.
