The beach area in La Cala is very nice. I usually find myself a nice Chiringuito (cafe/bar/restaurant on the beach - there's about ten to choose from along the whole beach) at about 10 am, (opening time) and have myself a nice coffee whilst listening...More

Visited this place several times and it was OK just to stroll down the beach and have a quick beer at one of the many bars along the front.

Lovely frontage and bar / sunbed availability. Careful as the beach drops suddenly leaving you from waist height to neck height in a matter of paces

We’re back. Last year was so good we’re here again. A real home from home and has all the amenities you could wish for. The only change is the sun beds by the pool have vanished which is a real shame. Otherwise fantastic.

La Cala has it all , a traditional Spanish fishing village which has retained its Spanish character yet has all the bars , wine bars and international restaurants you could wish for ( and of course the obligatory Irish Bar ) Highly recommended

I did not see a fishmonger there. But several of the local supermakets there have fresh fish counters.

Sarah there is Street Parking ------ But you simply have to take Pot luck as Parking is bad in La Cala itself Sometimes it's better to Park outside of La Cala ( where the market is held ) and walk over
