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.

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.

We needn't have worried! As we weren't hiring a car we were advised about using the train and the bus from the airport, which we did, and had an enjoyable and stress free journey to the apartment, which was also cost effective. When we arrived at the complex we found it to be in a gorgeous aspect, right next to the sea with a boardwalk just outside. The gardens and lawn were well tended and the areas around the pools were spotless. The apartment was fantastic! It has everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday. The balcony was large and gave views of Gibraltar and the African Coast on a fine clear day, of which there were many. The TV had all English channels, sky movies and sport channels, providing great entertainment in the evening. The wifi connection was marvellous. As it got cool in the evenings, being winter, we used the heating system which was easy to use. The area of Calahonda was perfect for us. There were three supermarkets within easy walking distance, Lidl, Super Sol and Mercodona, and the fact the apartment has a shopping trolley we could use, made shopping a pleasure not a chore. The range of fish in particular was astonishing. The vegetables and fruit were extremely fresh and the meat fantastic. Whichever supermarket you choose it will be a ten minute walk from the complex. Close by is Luna Beach, where the food is good and the setting wonderful and it can be accessed by the boardwalk. Behind the restaurant, you can take the path up the hill which goes through a wood, and leads to the Marina at Cabopino. You may find this easier than walking across the sandy beach. La Cala de Mijas is a beautiful village where you can sit with a coffee and people watch or walk through the streets and look in the many small shops. You can catch the bus there or walk along the boardwalk to it. It is about 6.5 kilometres. The buses are in fact great. We used them to go to Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona. At this time of year not all the restaurants were open and it is obviously much quieter than in the summer, but we enjoyed it very much. It was a very relaxing holiday and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Wayne was extremely helpful before we went, providing us with the train timetable and local information.

Amanda was brilliant from the start ,her communication was fantastic replying to all my questions promptly & full instructions with how to get to apartment , picking keys up & also a helpful folder about whats goin on in area. There was also coffee , tea bags , sugar , water & milk when we arrived. Amanda went that extra mile with little shower gel , bath wash soap cotton buds ect , her attention to detail was brilliant nice little touches. This 2 bedroom apartment was like home from home with all English TV , iron , ironing board , hairdryer , cooler box , plenty of towels , loads of cutlery , glasses , plates ,pans ect ..i must say Amanda had thought off everything. The patio was amazing with lovely furniture , bbq , sunbeds & just a few steps off the patio your on the gorgeous pool area. Calahonda is a lovely urbanisation & this apartment is in a prime location, across the road is a big Sol suppermaket ,cafes ,Pharmacy & 2 minute walk your on El Zoco which has loads of restaurants & bars & across the road is the beach with great walkways to Cabopino & lovely beach bars or the other way to La Cala a beautiful village & other urbanisation . We rented a car from airport & there's private underground parking which was great but to be fair you dont need one as your near to everything & there's a bus stop 5 minutes from apartment which can take you anywhere ie Fuengirola , Benalmadena , Torremolinos , Marbella , Puerto Banùs or Gibraltar ect . So will we go back ...Definitely ....myself and my husband holiday 4/5 times a year & i alway read all reviews as it helps us so i hope my information with help others & you wont be disappointed. Thank you Amanda for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment & hope to be back this year Donna & Gary Hughes
