La Cala de Mijas info and property for sale


Fairways la cala golf is a few minutes’ drive from the bustling village of La Cala de Mijas. Here is a rundown of what La Cala has to offer.

La Cala de Mijas, or Mijas Bay in English, forms part of the Municipality of Mijas in the province of Malaga, Andalucia, southern Spain.

Located in the middle of the Costa del Sol, La Cala sits between the towns of Fuengirola to the east, and Marbella to the west.

With a population of over 24,000 inhabitants and due to its central location, the town has adapted itself very well to cater for tourism, but also offers the essential community services such as health centers, schools, banks, supermarkets and a library.

La Cala de Mijas was an agricultural and small, typically Andalusian white-washed fishing village, until the beginning of the Spanish tourist boom in the 1960s.

In its ancient history it has been a place of defence, fortified with four towers along the Mediterranean coast of Andalucia, whose function was to give notice in the presence of enemy ships to the garrisons of Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Marbella. This was one of the places where the Berbers attacked. The towers are:

· Torre de Calahonda (from the 16th century)

· New Tower of La Cala del Moral (probably the most modern tower along the coast, 19th century)

· Battery Torre La Cala del Moral (16th century)

· Calaburras Tower (built around 1515 in the Punta de Calaburras)

Known previously as “La Cala del Moral” (English: The Bay of Mulberries) because of the abundance of Mulberry trees growing in the area, the name was changed in the 1970s to La Cala de Mijas. In those early tourist days, La Cala only had some 30 fishermen’s cottages, a couple of bars, an open-air summer cinema, butcher ‘s, grocers, a small chapel, a school and little else.

Nowadays in La Cala you can access all the amenities of a large town yet with a local village feel which is what makes La Cala the charming and popular village that it is today.
