Situated on a bend in the coast, almost midway between Marbella and Fuengirola, La Cala is uniquely close to both long, sandy beaches and unspoilt countryside.
La Cala is built around the core of a small fishing settlement, and so retains the appeal of a typically Spanish village infused with a classic seaside ambience.
The tight-knit centre of La Cala village offers a wide range of services to residents in the local area, as well as a very good choice of restaurants, tapas bars and cafés fronting either the old town or the long, sandy beach dotted with little coves as it follows the sweep of the coast.
Close by are international schools, the three championship golf courses and luxury spa hotel of La Cala Golf, and a popular horseracing circuit with lots of entertainment that makes for a fun day out for the family. La Cala is also within easy reach of the international airport of Málaga.
La Cala area is popular with people who enjoy its authentic atmosphere yet like to be close to all amenities. Moreover, they like to have the sea, golf courses and also the countryside on their doorstep.
People choose La Cala as it’s rather unique in that it offers all these things within very close range, making it possible to go to the beach or head inland for walks, biking, horse riding, fishing and sightseeing in a beautiful natural area with lakes, mountains and pine forests.
The area immediately around the village of La Cala also offers a great variety in property types and settings, ranging from inexpensive holiday apartments to townhouses, as well as smaller to medium-sized villas and even rustic homes with land.
One of the most attractively priced areas along this part of the Costa del Sol, properties in La Cala can range from under €100,000 to larger properties around and above the €1 million level, yet La Cala property is very much a market characterised by value for money.
