Calahonda is located in the western parts of Mijas, Marbella is the neighbour on the west side, and La Cala de Mijas is located on the east side. The area is a quiet, relaxed and family friendly part of Costa del Sol, with many restaurants and bars, and of course there are beaches.
There is a reason for the area to be called Costa del Golf, there are numerous golf courses in, and close to, Mijas. Apart from spending time on the beaches, golf is of course one of the most popular activities here. If you are fond of snow and skiing, then you will find that within reach, a couple of hours with a car will take you to the ski-slopes.
If you are one of those who enjoys a night out, you have a lot to choose from. Marbella, where Puerto Banos might be the main attraction, is only a taxi ride away, Fuengirola is even closer and also Málaga is within comfortable reach.
Day trips along the coast are popular, Gibraltar is for example a place most people want to visit at least once.
