If you are looking for a retirement home in the sun in Spain, have you considered La Cala de Mijas? It is situated in the province of Malaga and is on the coast of the Costa del Sol and is only a 15 minute drive to Marbella and 25 minutes to Malaga, so if you enjoy a day out in the bigger cities they are not very far away. Fuengirola, which is more relaxed than the bigger cities, is only 10 minutes by car.
The weather is great as you would expect on the Spanish coast with an average of 27°C throughout the year, rising to about 31°C as a maximum. The standard of the beaches is rated as very high compared with other beaches in this part of Spain and they are looked after properly and cleaned and maintained throughout the year.
La Cala has quite a number of expats living here, so you won’t feel as if you are in a foreign country where you don’t know anyone, as you will soon get to make some new friends. Of course, another big advantage is that although you have a home in the sun, the cost of living is a lot less than in the UK so every pound goes that much further.
Because of the mix of different nationalities living in the area there is a great selection of different restaurants too. You can have a burger and chips, a lovely pizza, or perhaps a sushi dinner. Naturally, there is a big choice of Spanish restaurants serving traditional Spanish food, and the prices are lower than in other parts of Spain too.
There is an abundance of spas, resorts, gyms, and sports centres in La Cala, and it is also noted for its’ choice of golf clubs. La Cala Golf, Milaflores Golf, Santana Golf, Santa Maria Golf & Country Club, and Cabopino Golf Marbella, are all less than five miles away.
