La Cala de Mijas is one of the original fishing villages situated on the Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga. A charming village with a restored Moorish tower, a friendly village atmosphere and lots of appeal.
Located between the towns of Fuengirola and Marbella, close to popular urbanization of Calahonda, La Cala de Mijas is a very popular town with many good restaurants, shops, chemist and beach-front bars. Malaga International Airport is just 20 minutes drive away.
The town offers a nice easy paced life, not taken over completely by tourism, but with good facilities, a lovely golden sand beach and close to larger towns offering more action.
Places to visit The cultural city of Malaga is just 30 minutes drive away, the vibrant and happy town of Fuengirola and traditional Mijas Pueblo, both just 10 minutes, and upmarket Marbella, to the west, approximately 20 minutes drive. La Cala de Mijas offers a perfect holiday base to go off and visit other parts of the coast, the bus from the town centre, can take you to Marbella and Fuengirola town centres.
Golf La Cala Golf, Santana Golf, El Chapparral and Mijas Golf are all located within the vicinity and offer excellent conditions for a round or two of golf.
Eating Out La Cala de Mijas might be small, but it is packed with dining out choices. From typically Spanish ‘Menu del Dia’ restaurants, seafood, a Goan Indian Restaurant, British, Thai and a good old Irish pub. Spoilt for choice you will be and if not then hop in the car and pop to Fuengirola, where the choice is even greater.
Climate La Cala de Mijas enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable; temperatures average 32 ºC during the summer.
Unspoilt & uncommercialised area away from the busier resorts. Plenty of restaurants, bars, etc. A new wooden coastal pathway is underway that will link most of the Marbella coast line, with some parts already complete that are great for walking on, with numerous beach bars to call in for refreshments.
Costa del Sol reviews
Plenty of areas to visit along the coast & even further afield & inland. Many beaches along the coast with Capabino having a lovely sandy beach.
La Cala de Mijas hands lot of restaurants however the centre was quite a walk from the accommodation and not worth the effort. Approx 4 British bars/restaurants close by at the bottom of the hill however the centre was further than we had expected
Costa del Sol reviews
I really liked the local beach - it had some big waves near where we stayed which my boys enjoyed and had quite a rocky coastline further along
