Calahonda - Motril
The Small Fishing Village of Calahonda near Motril...
Calahonda has become a tourist and retirement destination, with lower prices than its westerly neighbors primarily due to its more remote location. As with many other areas along the Costa Tropical, the beaches of Calahonda are wide and clean, and the town is quiet. There are large rocks jutting into the sea with oasis-like groves of palms dotting the Calahonda beaches, giving Calahonda an exotic, Middle Eastern feel.
The rocky cliffs of Calahonda lend themselves well to snorkeling and diving, and the steady winds make for excellent year-round sailing, windsurfing, and paragliding.
Calahonda has excellent chiringuitos, bars, and restaurants along the beach serving the abundantly fresh seafood. As a traditional fishing village, the Calahonda beach is lined with small fishing boats that make for excellent photos and is especially romantic at sunset.
Calahonda shares with the Costa Tropical and Andalucia region its rich Roman and Moorish past, with many old buildings and bridges still standing, including the watchtowers dotting the cliffs along the coast.
