Virtual Tour of La Cala de Mijas

La Cala de Mijas, or just "La Cala" as this wonderful Andalucian village is affectionately known to locals, is situated on the West Costa del Sol in Andalucia approximately 20 minutes drive from Malaga International Airport (AGP). The long Blue Flag beaches are well cared for, very clean and soft golden sand.

Whilst La Cala is quite obviously a traditional Andalucian Coastal Village in style, La Cala has absorbed a somewhat International flavour over recent years. There is a wide range of professional services available: Schools, Pharmacies, banks, doctors, lawyers, dentists at standards equally as high as those in the UK. Medical care in particular is first class - the new hi-tech Costa del Sol Hospital is 15 minutes in the direction of Marbella, and the ground-breaking Carlos Haya Malaga Hospital just 25 mins in the opposite direction.

La Cala boasts a plethora of quality indoor & outdoor sports and leisure facilities in and around La Cala de Mijas. Watersports, horse riding & trekking, karting, diving, tennis clubs, Crown Green bowls, gymnasiums, dive centres and Of course International competition standard golf courses at La Cala Golf Resort (60 holes), Mijas Golf (36), Santana Golf(18) and El Chaparral(18) opens this Summer. These Golf Clubs welcome non-members, tuition is available and equipment is available for hire. The New Mijas Hippodrome & Athletics Venue ("Hipodromo del Costa del Sol"), run by Carrera Entertainment, located just on the outskirts of La Cala is the chosen venue for the Annual Spanish Derby & Music Concerts including Rod Stewart, Elton John, Lenny Kravitz, UB40 & Bryan Adams later this Summer, making for a great family night out with plenty of Bars & Restaurants.
