La Cala de mijas is situated between Fuengirola and Calahonda off the A7. The village was originally called La Cala de Moral (The bay of mulberries) because the large amount of mulberry trees in
the area. The name was changed in the 1970's so there would be no confusion with La Cala del Moral the other side of Malaga. Before the tourist boom La Cala was a white washed fishing village but the
tourist trade brought an end to that and now La Cala is very much dependant on tourism. The one thing that stands out is the lack of hotels. Tourists rely mainly on holiday rental for accommodation With the A7 hugging the perimeter of the old town means that there is no room for expansion within. All
the expansion is the other side of the motorway keeping the village small and contained. This makes it an excellent choice for a holiday.
