The town has two large supermarkets, a weekly market, sports facilities, a golden sandy beach and plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, with Fuengirola a short drive away if more choice is needed. Golfers are spoilt for choice with four competition standard golf courses located nearby at La Cala, Mijas Golf, Santana Golf and El Chaparral.
The annual fair is held during the month of July. This is when La Cala de Mijas is bedecked and adorned with decorations for a week of festivities.
One of the benefits of choosing to own a property in La Cala de Mijas is the proximity of Malaga Airport, just 20 minutes away by car, making it a popular destination for those flying in from Northern Europe.
