Things to do in Calahona - The essential Calahonda guide.
Beautiful weather, straddling the thin strip of land
between rugged mountains and the silky shimmer of
the Mediterranean and attracting plenty of tourists each
year lies Calahonda.

Calahonda is a coastal holiday town situated between Fuengirola
and Marbella, just 30 minutes by car from Malaga airport to the
west on the N340/A7 road. Founded as urbanization in 1963,
Calahonda is situated in Mijas Costa between Fuengirola and Marbella
Close to all the major attractions that the area has to offer and known for
having some of the best beaches throughout Spain.

Calahonda Area Guide

Until 1963, there was very little that linked the coast between Mijas and Marbella. That was the year that Don José Orbaneja arrived in the area and bought two large estates, one from the Van Dulken family, and merged them to create Sitio de Calahonda. Now Calahonda is a huge and thriving community, home to many nationalities and perfectly situated almost equidistant between Málaga and Marbella, in the heart of Mijas Costa, allowing fast  and easy road access to all areas in both directions along the  coast.  Calahonda enjoys some of the best views on the coast, so it’s  worth driving, or even walking, to its highest point, known as the  Hermitage (La Ermita) which is the little white monument that you  can see from most of the surrounding areas, and which enjoys  some spectacular views across the coast to Gibraltar and Africa.  
La Ermita is in the midst of glorious countryside and although it  now shares its top spot with the beautiful Las Cascadas urbanisation, it still stands proudly watching over Calahonda One of the best things about Calahonda is that it’s very self contained with all the sports and leisure facilities you’re ever likely to need, but it’s also close to many more in  Fuengirola, Málaga and Marbella. Of course, Calahonda has the obligatory beautiful, sun-drenched beaches with their little beach bars and some small but beautiful parks and there’s certainly no shortage of sports facilities.
