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.

The majority of local festivities all take place between May and November, including the Sardinada sardine festival in May, the Fiesta Las Lagunas and San Juan Fiesta in June, La Cala Fair in July and the International Food Festival in November.
