Sitio de Calahonda is an area between Marbella and Fuengirola belonging to the municipality of Mijas. It borders Cabopino and La Cala de Mijas, sharing the Mediterranean coastline of the Costa del Sol.
Calahonda is essentially a property development that spreads over 600,000 square metres of land covered in properties built mostly to cater to British ex-pats. Today this area has become somewhat of a self-catering village, mostly inhabited by foreign residents.
While the vast majority of Calahonda’s 600,000 square metres is devoted to villas, townhouses and space for four golf courses, selected areas have been dedicated to providing residents with every amenity imaginable. There are three commercial centres, approximately 45 restaurants, cafeterias and pubs as well as seven banks, several supermarkets and a wide variety of other businesses – hardware stores, furniture shops, garden supplies, travel agencies, car hire, car repair and property management to name a few. It is also home to a McDonald right by the coastal highway next to the Calahonda exit.
Golfers also enjoy Calahonda. The area is surrounded by a total of 10 golf courses within a 10-kilometre radius. This makes for easy access to a nice variety of golf courses without having to wander too far from home.
Health care needs are provided for by a chemist and three medical centres, offering 24- hour service locally. The Costa del Sol hospital is also just a stone’s throw from Calahonda.
There is a nursery school in Calahonda. Private, primary and secondary schools are located nearby, including one of the most reputed international schools on the coast, the English International School (EIC), less than a 10- minute drive away.
