music and the cafe

Have had many a great night listening to live music at the cafe. Long may it continue. The food average but entertainment. Fabulous.

Lovely beach area, one of the best along the strip with some decent beach bars and now a boardwalk that takes you to the lovely town of L Cala or almost to the pretty port of Cabo Pino. This is a lovely walk and you can get the bus back every 30 minutes for just ov.er a euro.

There are something to know before you book anything in Calahonda. it's a nice enough place but only really suitable for a specific traveller. Recently the new mayor banned all live music in the town and started to introduce a more senior centric focus. It's a nice enough place to stay in but there is NOTHING to do there for... More

The sand is mixed with stones most of the stretch and there's rocks and stones in the water. We also had less than 20 degrees in the water.... Too cold even for vikings!

The beaches of Clahonda start at the Municipal Boundary of Mijas in the west and effectively continue all the way to La Cala de Mijas. This was the first year that we have been able to use the 6.39 km Coastal promenade from the ‘Termino Municipal Mijas’ to La Cala de Mijas. Completed in October 2014 it is a wide... More

Fantastic boardwalk along the Mediterranean Sea with nice places to stop for coffee or a beer or glass of wine. The beach is not friendly for swimming as very rocky. Great places to stay nearby with great restaurants.

Firstly, they are the hunting ground, and by no means happy, for hawkers selling tat. These guys are trying to make a living but they can be annoying, at a minimum. This lovely beach has its fair share. But the up side of beaches here is that they are dotted with chiringuitos, open air bars and restaurants and it is... More

A quieter stretch of beach but with all the usual amenities you need for a trip to the beach. There is now a new boardwalk along the beach which is good for walkers and joggers alike.

We've done the walk from Riviera to La Cala a few times and it's a great addition and the views of the Mediterranean are stunning. Lots of the chirrenguettos have profited from the boardwalk and more important lots of people's health has improved. One small winge are the bike users some don't show any consideration to the other boardwalk users.... More
