About the area
La Cala de Mijas is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol. In between Marbella and Fuengirola, and at a short distance from both, you will enjoy the charm this old fishing “pueblo” (village) has to offer.
Golden sandy beaches are surrounded by bars and restaurants, ‘chiringuitos’ called in Spanish. It’s a seaside village equipped with estate agencies, banks, shops, doctors, lawyers, gyms, dentists, supermarkets, restaurants and other leisure activities – services offered in all different languages.
There is a large market held 2 times a week (Wednesdays and Saturdays 10.00-14.00 hrs) and seasonal markets too (medieval, Christmas, and so on) and many cultural events and celebrations – it’s a village that likes to celebrate.
La Cala is a holiday destination that is perfect throughout the whole year. Nevertheless, it is still very local, a very Spanish-orientated full of Spanish residents. As mentioned, it’s a close distance from internationally famous places such as Puerto Banús, Marbella, Torremolinos and Fuengirola – all in the coastal ‘Costa del Sol’.
Costa del Sol has plenty of activities for kids and for adults. There is Tivoli World and Sea Life (both in Benalmádena), Bioparc Zoo (in Fuengirola), water parks (large one in Torremolinos, and another one in Mijas Costa/Fuengirola) and of course, wonderful and endless beaches.
For shopping you will find shops locally in La Cala, but if you want to go on a big shopping spree we suggest you go to Miramar shopping centre, where you will find anything and everything.
Restaurants, bar and beach bars are something you can enjoy throughout Costa del Sol. Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos are great (and well known) places for night life.
