If you are at retiring age and considering moving to Spain for the sun and beautiful weather, and yet you do not want to live in one of the big cities, then you might very well consider Sitie de Calahonda which is close to Marbella and Fuengirola. With a population of a little over 16,000 it is relatively quiet and yet offers all of the benefits of living in Spain, not the least of which is the climate. 
However, there is another issue that might help you in making your decision, and that is that it is largely populated by Brits! Lots of tourists from Britain also come here during the summer, so it is pretty much a home away from home. 
 
There is a lovely long stretch of sandy beach with pretty villas along it, and there are also beach restaurants called Chiringuitos here and there. There is also a nudist beach if that’s your “thing”. 
 
 
You Can See Gibraltar And North Africa 
 
Behind Calahonda are the hills, and there is a small Christian monument up there from which you can see both North Africa and Gibraltar on a clear day. 
 
Calahonda has got a shopping centre, El Zoco, and there are lots of opportunities for shopping (obviously because of all the visitors the town gets), and for eating out. When it comes to restaurants there are many different sorts, and you can also get good old British fish and chips! There is not a huge amount of nightlife, but in the El Zoco centre there is the Trafalgar Bar which stays open until 3.00am, and nearby is David’s Bar which is popular. If you are into golf, then there is Miraflores close by which also offers bowling. 
 
When it comes to removals in Calahonda, we can help you at Movers International. Spain is probably the country that we visit most often, largely because so many Brits choose to retire there. We have a weekly run to Spain so we can help you if you only want to move a small amount of items – or even a single item. We also have two depots in Spain – one in Malaga and another in Alicante - so we are able to provide storage for you if, for example, you need removals in Calahonda but your new home is not yet ready to move into.
