Discover Calahonda: The Perfect Road Trip Destination

Calahonda, nestled along the sun-drenched Costa del Sol in the province of Málaga, Spain, is a charming coastal town that offers an inviting mix of leisure, scenic beauty, and cultural experiences. With its central location, Calahonda is an ideal base for exploring the Andalusian coastline, and with the convenience of a rental car, you're perfectly positioned to embark on a journey of discovery.

Car Hire Benefits in Calahonda

Proximity to Airports: The nearest airport to Calahonda is Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP), which is about 30 kilometers away, providing a brief and scenic drive along the coast.

Driving Conditions: The A-7 motorway runs near Calahonda and connects it with Málaga to the northeast and Marbella to the southwest, providing easy access to many of the region’s attractions. The roads are typically in excellent condition and offer breathtaking views of the Mediterranean.

Tolls: Some parts of the A-7 are toll roads (referred to as the AP-7). If you prefer a toll-free journey, the parallel N-340 is a good alternative, though it might be slower due to traffic and lower speed limits.
