Calahonda is one of the biggest urbanisations on the Costa del Sol as it is perfectly located a happy distance from Malaga airport as well as not too far from all other popular tourist destinations on the coast such as Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Estepona, Marbella etc. As a result it is a top choice for not only holiday goers but also with those looking for more of a permanent base on the Costa del Sol.
Calahonda has a couple of hubs of shops, bars and restaurants including "the strip" as it is know to locals, i.e. the Avenida de Espana which goes up and round the main part of the lower area of Calahonda. You will also find the El Zoco commercial area, home to many restaurants, a supermarket or two, the local Post Office, newsagents, a hardware store ("ferreteria") and similar stores.
Calahonda is a useful location if you're a golf fan as it's situated amongst some of the top courses on the whole coast.
You will also find a tennis club in Calahonda - the Club del Sol - a superb tennis and leisure club with numerous courts. There are a few local top hotels and various time-share resorts that also have beauty spas and so many choose to come here for spa breaks while the men are off golfing!
Just on to the next exit of the N-340 coastal road is Cabopino, a lovely traditional port and just past that you will find Elviria. You can drive into Marbella in around 15 minutes for the best the coast has to offer and 15 mins drive inland will get you to Mijas Pueblo, the ultimate white village offering the traditional tourist wares, donkey rides and fantastic views down to the coast.
