La Cala probably suits middle aged/ older couples and groups or people with pre school kids as there’s not a lot of night time entertainment. It has lots of restaurants to suit all tastes and price brackets and a couple of good cocktail/ Tapas bars....More

We used the beach area in front of the Gran hotel in la Cala and the beds are so soft and clean and the lady who runs this area of sun beds is a credit to the country and is a lovely person

Not a resort for the 18/30 brigade but great for a more mature client. there is a good selection of restaurants and bars suitable for most occasions. With some more select wine bars and tapas bars.

A lovely place to visit , although in the village centre it is humming with people it is relatively quiet . A good variety of shops and with easy access to the beach . A slow paced village with a good bus service .

Sarah there is Street Parking ------ But you simply have to take Pot luck as Parking is bad in La Cala itself Sometimes it's better to Park outside of La Cala ( where the market is held ) and walk over
