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.

Also in the Aquatropic water park are a restaurant, cafe and bar ready to offer something to hungry and thirsty holidaymakers.

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.

                                                                                                      We visited at the start of February as a family of 4. We are 2 adults and 2 children (one aged 4 years and one aged 6 months old). What a fantastic find! The owners were really good at keeping in contact before our stay and therefore we were confident about our holiday stay. We arrived to a very clean, spotless apartment after a flight from the UK. It seemed a lot bigger than what we'd viewed on the photos. The balcony is ideal for sitting out in the sunshine for a family breakfast looking either out to sea or towards to pool! The lounge area is ideal for relaxing in the evening when the children are in bed - a very comfy seating area next to the dining area. The kitchen is well equipped - we decided to eat in each night as the children were exhausted and in bed by the time it was dark at 7pm!! Plenty of supermarkets in the area to keep adequately supplied!! Both bedrooms are spacious - one is a double with a bathroom and the other is a a twin with a shower room off it. We frequented local beaches at La Cala de Mijas and then discovered the great beach at Cabopino - daily sea swims were fantastic! Day trips to Ronda and the white village of Mijas are possible and lunch out at Benalmadena kept our week busy! Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment for our winter sunshine holiday!!! We'd totally recommend a stay here!

It was spotlessly clean upon arrival and had comfortable sofas and beds. The wifi is faultless which is a pleasant addition. We had a couple of teething problems with the tv and water but the friendly owner ensured that these issues were quickly resolved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
