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.

                                                                                                      The apartment is modern, comfortable, well equipped and within a very nice, quiet community. The pool area is great, cleaned every morning and surprisingly quiet. We often had the pool to ourselves. Our children really enjoyed it and it's perfect for cooling off after a hot day! Once we familiarised ourselves with the area, most days we would walk down to the beach & supermarket, which takes about 20mins. The beach is a little pebbly but this wasn't a problem for us (children may want to wear beach shoes in the sea). The walk back to the apartment is up some very steep hills and not ideal in the heat, so we'd usually hop in a taxi (taxi rank is opposite the supermarket/outside Princess Diana Park) which cost on average €6. If you don't mind a bit of walking, you can walk back in the evenings once it's cooled down! We visited Fuengirola a few times, catching the 220 bus from outside 'Max Beach' (beachfront bar/restaurant). Bioparc Zoo is worth a visit, we've been a couple of times over the years. It costs approx.€60 for a family of 4, but it is one of the best zoos we've visited. You can usually pick up discount vouchers in shops/hotel foyers. You can also catch the 220 bus to Marbella (heading in the opposite direction). Food recommendations: 'The Organic Cafe' in Fuengirola for delicious vegan/vegetarian meals and freshly made drinks. 'La Plaza' Italian Restaurant (above the OpenCor supermarket) is family friendly & offers great pasta/pizza at reasonable prices. However, the apartment kitchen is well equipped so we often cooked then enjoyed a relaxing drink on the terrace. We found that we didn't need a car, as we're happy to do a bit of walking and used the local buses/taxis. The owners are helpful and always responded quickly to emails before and during our stay. They kindly allowed us to check-out late which was useful as we had an evening flight with young children. We would certainly recommend Monte Marina and will consider booking again for next year. Many thanks!

Which consisted of 2 adults and 3 young adults. It's big enough that everyone had their space! Thank god for the air con as we had a very very hot day just before we left. The location was perfect for us as we have family in Sitio de Calahonda. Your also close enough to all amenities and the beachs aren't too far either. The new board walk has made accessing the beaches/ restaurants and bars so much easier. It's a beautiful walk after evening meal. Gill and the agents are all fantastic and we can't thank them enough. Many thanks Heather
