An Afternoon in La Cala de Mijas

Hit the Beach a La Cala
In recent years, La Cala de Mijas has come a long way. Once a sleepy fishing pueblo (village), La Cala is increasingly popular with visitors from all over Europe. And rightly so, in our opinion!
A charming little town, La Cala has seen some considerable investment, both private and governmental. There are many new bars and top quality restaurants – some almost as good as ours! – plus a magnificent ‘Blue Flag’ beach.
If you feel like a walk along the beautiful Costa del Sol beach front, you can access the Mijas Boardwalk directly from El Oceano and, in little more than ten or fifteen minutes, you’ll be in the center of La Cala. As you approach the town, you pass a number of Spanish chiringuitos (traditional beach bars), many with the trademark espetos (sardines cooked on an open fire) being cooked in boats. A wide, sandy beach, ideal for a day’s sunbathing, the ‘Blue Flag’ sea-front is always clean and well kept.
Once you get to the center of town, you’ll see ‘El Torreón’, a magnificent old sea defense tower. In a broad plaza, the tower overlooks a number of cafes and bars, plus beach-front recreation areas for adults and kids alike.
If you feel you’d like to explore this area a little, La Cala is a great place to start. We recommend!
After your day out, walk back along the Boardwalk ready for an aperitif in the lounge and a great meal.
El Oceano Hotel is on the edge of La Cala
Find El Oceano right on the water-front, at the western edge of La Cala de Mijas, on Spain’s beautiful Costa del Sol.
One of the nicer parts of the Costa del Sol, Mijas Costa offers cleaner beaches and avoiding the often-maddening crowds of other parts of this coastline. The newly constructed boardwalk, running right along Mijas Costa, gives to the opportunity to explore this wonderful coastline on foot. We are just a 10 minutes walk to the charming little town of La Cala de Mijas.
