Rivieria del sol Location

how far by foot is Riveriera del sol from La Cala de Mijas, as I am looking at an apartment in Riveriera del sol. Which is the best beach La Cala or the Riveriera?

The beach at Riviera is poor. Maybe 3 out of 10. La Cala has a great beach and is walkable from Riviera if you are committed and wearing a stout pair of shoes.

Better to pay a few euros (six) for a taxi or jump aboard the half-hourly Fuengirola bus that makes a mandatory stop at the bottom of your road and is just five minutes away from La Cala.

Agree with Tony, Riviera and Calahonda beaches are not very good, not bad for rock pools but for anything else not worth spending time on. However, another good beach, just a bus ride away is Puerto Cabopino with the marina and both La Cala and Cabopino are wide beaches with lots of restaurants and bars in both areas.

Which bit of Riviera Del Sol are you staying in as it could be a bit of a trek from some areas down to the bus stops and the beach.

If you stay in Riviera you are only one exit away from La Cala. But it also depends on where in Riviera you are as it does extend quite far back. If you are in the lower part you will be close to the bars and shops. Maybe have a look at staying in MiraFlores as that is pretty much at the bottom. The beach in La Cala is nice and much better then Riviera.

If it is bus exits the helpful Maiteland refers to, be aware there are three after Riviera before arriving at La Cala, namely Miraflores, Caza Azul and Torrenueva.
