Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Calahonda, Spain your home away from home

Located in the Spanish municipality of Motril in the central part of Granada Province, Calahonda is a touristic bloom that is only just blossoming into a world class resort. This town owes its origins to its port and while its harbour is still a key attraction, Calahonda has so much more to offer the fun-seeking traveller. The usual seaside pastimes are available in this Andalusian town alongside plenty of other activities and there is a lot to see, so visitors need to plan their time wisely. In terms of accommodation, all sizes of groups and purses are taken care of comfortably. There are spacious beachfront apartments with spectacular views and swimming pools and detached villas big enough for a group of seven among many other options.

Things to do on holiday to Calahonda, Spain

A visit to this coastal locale opens the starry-eyed holidaymaker to an abundance of possibilities. Enacting the typical postcard scene of a sunbather zoned out underneath a parasol, sunglasses and layers of sunscreen is understandably the priority for most people who visit Calahonda. And few places in the world offer conditions more suited to this activity (or rather, inactivity) than the beaches of this town. While visitors thus splay themselves and abandon their worldly cares, their children can seek entertainment in the kids’ play area.

When night falls, Granada’s coastline comes alive with a number of bars and beach clubs opening their doors to revellers. Even those who are not dyed in the wool party animals will find themselves joining in the party; mingling and making merry till the wee hours.

Calahonda is dotted with a number of caravan and camping sites, so those who find their holiday incomplete without a tented stay and the smell of bonfire smoke have plenty to look forward to.

Places to visit on holiday to Calahonda, Spain

On the nearby Velilla Beach visitors will find an 18,000 square-metre theme park that is a haven of unbridled fun for people of all ages. Of course it has a wide range of water slides, but besides this there is a designated playground for kids, quad bikes for speed freaks and a massage centre for the kinks and stress from hours of daily grind. Also in the Aquatropic water park are a restaurant, cafe and bar ready to offer something to hungry and thirsty holidaymakers.

Weather in Calahonda, Spain

Like the larger town of Granada in which it is found, Calahonda boasts mostly sunny weather which culminates in temperatures of over 35°C during summer. But in winter, especially in January, it can get as cold as 0°C. Rainfall is scarce here, and more so during summer.

Travel to Calahonda, Spain

Coming in from abroad, travellers will likely jet into the Spanish capital Madrid through its Barajas Airport. This airport serves most major international airlines. From here visitors can travel the 260 odd miles to Granada by chartered flight, landing at the Granada Airport. UK tourists used to be able to avoid this connection inconvenience when Ryanair had direct flights to Granada but this is no longer the case. Rental cars can be booked while at Granada Airport. Visitors can also choose to grab a taxi.

Excellent Apartment and a wonderful host

5 of 5
We have just returned from a week in Amanda's wonderful apartment in Gran Calahonda. This apartment ticks all the boxes with all you will need and more for a wonderful holiday. It situated in a lovely complex with beautiful gardens and a nice pool on your doorstep. Amanda has added several little extras as mention in other reviews but these make a huge difference and would not normal be found in other holiday rental. The apartment itself is located only 5 mins walk from the beach with all the bars and restaurants Calahonda has to offer. We also found the booking process, information and support provided by Amanda from start to finish extremely professional and helpful. We would highly recommend this apartment for anybody looking for a quality rental experience in Calahonda.

Brilliant apartment in perfect location

5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment last March and could not wait to book up again for this year. So have just returned from a 10 day holiday and it was just perfect. It really is like home from home,you will find everything you need in the apartment and sitting on the terrace watching the world go by is an added bonus. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and we found a few we didn't know about last time. Great supermarkets also within walking distance tho we did get taxi back with our first shop but only cost a few euros. We also got a bus and then train to Benalmadena for the day which was so easy.. Looking to book up for next year soon as it's very popular and we don't want to miss out. Thanks again owners Wayne & Julie for sharing your apt with us. Maggie & Danny
