Covering a 12 kilometre stretch of coastline, Mijas Costa includes the urbanisations of La Cala, Sitio de Calahonda, Riviera del Sol and Miraflores. Each of these is almost a village in its own right nowadays, each having a full range of amenities. There is a micro climate here that leaves the area bathed in sunshine and it is popular with tourists from all over Europe and therefore a perfect investment opportunity if you are looking to buy a property.
La Cala is just 25 minutes’ drive west from Malaga International Airport. It has a more traditional feel than anywhere else between Marbella and Fuengirola as it was a former fishing village and stretches into the hills behind leading into the golf fairways of La Cala Resort and Mijas Golf.
There are so many golf courses just on your doorstep here including Mijas Golf, El Chaparral and Miraflores and with more than 300 sunny days a year, if golf is your passion then you should play in Spain.
The commercial centre of La Cala village has all the amenities you’d need whether visitor or resident including supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops. There is a lovely weekly market here that is open in winter and bustling in during the spring and summer months.
Sitio de Calahonda, Riviera del Sol and Miraflores are large urbanisations made up of a full range of properties, including apartments, villas and townhouses. You can easily choose any property type and there will be something to suit your needs in these areas that suit those looking for a more relaxed pace of life than Marbella or Puerto Banus.
Starting at the beachside, where you find most of the areas bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops – the urbanisations have spread up to the base of the mountain, giving spectacular views to the properties situated up there. Properties are definitely more affordable here, as this is not intended to be an exclusive area. It is excellent for families, retirees, and anyone wishing to get on the property ladder in the sunshine!
