Mini guide to Calahonda
Sitio de Calahonda is 100kms east of Malaga on the south coast of Spain, far removed from the bustling Costa del Sol, yet having nice beaches and an array of hotels. You can pick up cheap car hire in Calahonda, as well as in Malaga, and explore the coast and rural Spain.
Calahonda is pretty laidback and although it has a bit of a grey sand beach, it is pretty enough and is surrounded by cliffs. Calahonda has a rural feel to it and is largely devoid of the mega resorts and skyscrapers of the Costa del Sol. There are green areas all around and easy access to the countryside with car rental in Calahonda.
Most of the accommodation comes in the form of townhouse rentals and villas, yet there are plenty of restaurants and cafés, as well as pubs and golf courses. You can access golf courses with car hire in Calahonda as they extend out to about 10kms.
After you have had your fill with Calahonda's beaches and sights, consider heading up to the Sierra Nevada Mountains with car hire in Calahonda. They are just 50kms north of the coast and have unrivalled views over the sea, coast and Granada. There are also some ski resorts up here, to boot.
Just beyond the Sierras is the ancient Moorish town of Granada, with its UNESCO World Heritage Alhambra pleasure palace. Also within reach with car hire in Calahonda is the town of Malaga, while farther west is Marbella.
