When we went to Mijas Costa for a few days we stayed at Calamijas Hotel ( and paid €42 a night for a double room with breakfast. We found this particular hotel to be more than adequate.

As you all know me and especially Barn love our food, Spain is most definitely the place to over indulge at a cost effective price.

Tapas is the best way to eat as you can try lots of different foods! At lunchtime you can usually get some Tapas and a drink for around €20 per couple. Otherwise evening meals range between €30 & €50 per couple. Portions are more than adequate.

If you are not so keen on the local cuisine there is also an Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and Irish bar serving all the favourite English meals.


There is a square in the middle of the town where all the restaurants and Tapas bars are situated, along with an Irish Bar. There are also a small number of bars located across the main road by the Calamijias Hotel.

If you are looking for a more lively night out you have Fuengirola or Benalmadena just down the road, only a short taxi ride away.


In la Cala de Mijas the beach is on your door-step, they are impeccably clean, it is perfect to put your towel down, feet in the sea and soak up the sun, with a cold beer in your hand.


There are 3 main playgrounds in La Cala de Mijas, one on the beach for the toddlers and two behind the beach. These are for the older children 3 upwards.


There is plenty to do in and around Mijas Costa including aqua-parks, go-karting, horse riding, pirate boat trips and lots more. I forgot to mention, most importantly of all Golf for the lads!!!


There are numerous golf courses in the area as it is a hot bed for aspiring golfers. One 9-hole course is situated just behind the Calamijas Hotel. ‘It costs around €21 for 9 holes €30 for 18.

We are likely to get a group discount depending on numbers. Booking prior to travelling may also help with costs.

Clubs are available to hire, costing from €30 to €60 for the week.

While the men play golf the girls can have a spa day. This can all be organised by

Family fun

I have heard about the Aqua arena park from Coe’s stag do, and have been told it’s a great day out.

We have managed to collect a few adventure guides for you to look through in your own time.
