Area Overview

Affectionately known as “"La Cala" by the local residents, and situated in Mijas Costa in the Costa del Sol, La Cala de Mijas is a charming fishing village boasting golden sandy beaches. The village remains unspoiled by mass tourism, and promotes a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living that includes a host of sporting activities such as tennis, golf, lawn bowls, horse-riding and scuba-diving.

From May to November, the area hosts lots of local festivals such as the San Juan Fiesta and the International Food Festival, whilst the village also boasts a number of excellent restaurants serving both local and international cuisine. Restaurant prices compare favourably compared to neighbouring Costa del Sol destinations such as Puerto Banus and Marbella.

La Cala enjoys a typically warm Mediterranean all-year-round climate. As well as being a family friendly destination, it is within easy reach of some of its more famous neighbours such as Puerto Banus, Marbella, Torremolinos and Fuengirola, making it a good base to explore the region of Andalusia.
