Property in La Cala
La Cala is the central point of Mijas Costa, the 12 kilometre stretch of coastline joining (from East to West), El Chaparral, La Cala (also referred to as La Cala de Mijas), El Combo, Riviera del Sol and Calahonda. Whilst it has grown and built up, especially over the past decade, it still maintains something of it´s Andalucian village by the sea atmosphere.
The long beaches are well cared for, clean with soft golden sand. La Cala has maintained a level of the real Spain but it has also taken on something of an international flavour.
From being originally a tiny fishing village, La Cala is a vibrant and thriving village with a population of 10,000 – many of whom are British. There are schools, a health centre, public library, post office, shops and cultural centre as well as many excellent bars and restaurants. This has helped to make the area a first choice for many wishing to retire away from the harsher climate of Northern Europe. Medical care is first class – the new Costa del Sol Hospital is no more than 15 minutes in the direction of Marbella. English, German and French daily newspapers are in the newsagents each morning before 9am.
