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.

Visitors can also choose to grab a taxi.

Maria, the owner, is simply excellent, always on call to deal with any problems - the hot water boiler broke down late one night and she arranged for a new boiler to be installed the next day with no fuss at all. The flat is very clean and well furnished, equipped with everything you need, including fast and free wifi and all the BBC/ITV channels on the television, plus BBC News and CNN. The beach is about 300 metres away via an underpass, or you can take the car down there (although the access road is a bit rough). The shopping centre - Lidl, Supersol, cafes, banks, chemist, Chinese bazaar - is about the same distance, maybe a bit closer. A bit further away is a McDonalds, again within walking distance, and a bit further again is another shopping centre, with more cafes, a big Mercadona, and a British Supermarket (owned by Waitrose and Iceland) selling a really good selection of British goods like HP sauce, Heinz baked beans, Robinsons squash, British sausages, bacon, yogurts, bread, and much, much more. The Calahonda Royale complex is gated and very well maintained. As with most complexes like this, walls are rather thin, so you can hear doors slamming, furniture being moved etc, plus there were quite a few dogs in the area while we were there and these seemed to enjoy a yapping chorus every so often. The apartment has easy access, being close to the gate and on the ground floor, thus having the added bonus of a sunny garden out the back. We hired a car for the month (although the bus stop Malaga/Marbella is just about 200 metres away), and at this time of year were able to park on the street. Overall, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay here and I would heartily recommend to anyone considering it.
