We are 5 - 10 minute walk from the nearest bars and restaurants, including the well known Blue Marlin restaurant, and the nearest supermarket. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach (El Bombo) and 15 minutes into the very centre of La Cala de Mijas. The walk includes one fairly steep hill and guests with mobility problems may need to consider car hire or taxi use (which are very reasonably priced!), but the walk is shaded, the views are magnificent and otherwise car hire is not essential.
There is an excellent boardwalk that can be accessed at El Bombo and stretches 6km along the coastline offering beautiful walks with the opportunity to visit many beachside bars and cafes along the way.
La Cala de Mijas is a beautiful former fishing village that retains it's traditional charm whilst having plenty of facilities, activities and excellent restaurants, bars and cafes catering to all tastes, including the famous Olivia's and the Little Geranium, as well as our own favourites - Albahaca and Konfusion!
There is a lively weekly market near the centre of La Cala. Golfers are spoilt for choice with La Cala Golf, Santana Golf, El Chapparral and Mijas Golf all nearby.
La Cala is only 20 minutes drive from Malaga airport and has great transport links to Marbella, Fuengirola, Malaga and beyond. It is within easy reach of Gibraltar.
La Cala is a wonderful holiday destination and our apartment is perfect for both those seeking a home from home and a base from which to explore this beautiful region.
