Use the boardwalk to take you along to Luna Beach.

We think that the better beach is at the Western end of the boardwalk around Luna Beach. Once you are on the boardwalk, you can't hear the traffic but you can hear the waves

Fantastic beaches to have a stroll along and listen to the waves and see some wildlife too. The boardwalk takes you from Calahonda right the way along to La Cala and you have plenty of choices in beach bars to eat at or get a drink. It's certainly a great piece of engineering and I am sure it had many... More

We stayed at the Calahonda Beach apartments which is a great place if you are a family. Convenient access from Malaga airport (less than 30 mins) and these apartments are on the beach. Convenient car parking and the med is a few yards from your terrace or window. There is a good pool and space to relax outside. There are... More

We have been coming to Calahonda for the past seven years and thoroughly enjoy it. Generally we eat at the Capricho, lovely setting where the food is great and the staff always pleasant and helpful. The So Bar we came across by accident this year. Normally we drive or walk by the bars and shops on the opposite side of... More

The boardwalk makes for easy walking and great view of the beach that stretches for miles it seemed. A walk there is highly recommended! I was there in February so didn´t try a swim *brrr*, but from what I saw there are beach bars and body guard posts.

With just a few gaps to complete, this is a godsend, from La Cala to Puerto Cabapino, we now find that we don't require a hire car, we simply book return airport transfers for £70.00 and walk everywhere, we haven't even needed to hail a cab or hop on a bus. We've been all over the area in a multitude... More

A good but short beach it offers some good bars and restaurant along the beach. The beach itself is stony but the water is clear and clean and it doesn’t get as busy as some of the other beaches in the area as it seems to be used mostly by locals. Parking can be a bit tricky as can general... More
