Situated midway between Fuengirola and Marbella, La Cala de Mijas boasts a prime coastal location, with easy access to both bustling towns. The heart of La Cala features a bustling town centre adorned with an array of shops, banks, and essential services, all within close proximity to the sun-kissed beaches.

Beyond the town centre, numerous communities have sprung up, showcasing modern developments like Jardinana and Fairways, each offering a higher standard of living with amenities such as swimming pools and top-notch facilities. While some properties may be situated further from the beach, the distances are seldom daunting, with both the beach and town centre typically within a leisurely 15-minute stroll.


Back in the 1960s, La Cala de Mijas, originally known as "La Cala de Moral," derived its name from the abundance of Mulberry trees adorning the local landscape. It embodied the essence of a quintessential Andalusian fishing village. Even today, if you cast your gaze over the shimmering Mediterranean in the early hours, you'll catch sight of humble fishing boats venturing out to sea, destined to supply the quaint "chiringuitos" and local eateries with the freshest catches of the day.

In the early 1990s, a name change occurred, transforming it into La Cala de Mijas to alleviate any confusion with another similarly named village situated to the east of Malaga. This marked a significant shift in the village's identity, gradually evolving into a sought-after tourist destination, particularly favoured by British visitors.

Presently, La Cala boasts a burgeoning population of approximately 10,000 residents, a number steadily increasing due to ongoing construction projects introducing modern and upscale properties. Its allure extends to both local inhabitants and international residents alike, drawn in by its excellent infrastructure. The village offers a wealth of local amenities, including public schools catering from kindergarten to secondary education, a vibrant cultural centre, public library, post office, health centre, and a plethora of inviting bars and restaurants.

Moreover, within just a few minutes' drive, you'll find an array of golf courses, catering to enthusiasts of the sport. These include the expansive 72-hole La Cala Golf Resort, Calanova Golf, El Chaparral Golf, the 36-hole Mijas Golf, the esteemed Santana Golf (a personal favourite), and the convenient 9-hole course at La Noria, situated a mere 200 meters from the village itself.

For those inclined towards sports, La Cala de Mijas boasts its own football club and an adjacent indoor sports centre complete with a spacious gymnasium. Venturing into the scenic Mijas mountains, you'll discover opportunities for horseback riding along various established paths. While the local racecourse, Hipodromo, presents an accessible option, smaller stables also offer classes and guided tours.

Visitors to the area frequently explore the local street market held just outside the village every Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Here, an assortment of fresh produce, souvenirs, and miscellaneous items await discovery from 9 AM to 2 PM.

During the summer months, the local town hall orchestrates an assortment of shows along the boulevard at the beachfront, featuring live entertainment ranging from diverse musical performances to captivating Flamenco shows. It's a delightful opportunity to immerse oneself in the authentic Spanish culture that still thrives in the region.

Lastly, the Senda Litoral deserves mention—a newly inaugurated beach promenade established in 2015. This scenic pathway links La Cala de Mijas with Riviera del Sol and Calahonda, offering a picturesque stroll along the Mediterranean shoreline. Along the way, you'll encounter charming beach restaurants and contemporary beach clubs, inviting you to pause for a refreshing beverage, a delectable meal, or perhaps both, while soaking in the stunning coastal views.
