If you want a home from home holiday – but with much better weather – Calahonda is the place for you. Situated between the popular towns of Marbella and Fuengirola in Costa del Sol, Calahonda is a great place to catch some sunshine with late holiday deals to Costa del Sol, shop and treat yourself to a full English. It also makes a fantastic base for exploring the greater Andalusian region.
Calahonda is home to plenty of green space and tends to be a peaceful, residential spot in Costa del Sol. You'll find 10 golf courses within 10 kilometres of the town and a whole host of shops, pubs, sports facilities and parks. Like the rest of the Costa del Sol, Calahonda enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and warm winters. Temperatures get hot during the summer, but they are often balanced by a pleasant breeze along the coast.
A coastal road cuts through Calahonda, separating the beach from the residential area behind. The town's own beach is relatively small, so although it provides a lovely vantage point from which you can gaze out across the Med, you'll want to head further along the coast for a long stretch of sunbathing space.
If you head west towards Marbella you'll find a great beach and port just a 15-minute walk away at Torre de Calahonda, which also has an ancient tower you can visit. Suitable for families and adults, the beach has toilet facilities and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Alternatively, there are natural sand dunes and a small nudist beach at Cabopino, or you can head east towards the popular beaches at Fuengirola.
