Calahonda Beach is located on the eastern side of the Balcon de Europa, down a cobbled path that has not changed much since Raquel Welch walked down it in 1967 in the film Fathom.

The beach is quite small but offers full facilities.  There are showers and toilet facilities, and a lifeguard presence during the holiday season.  Sunbeds can be hired here.  Snorkelling around the rocks beneath the Balcon de Europa is a popular activity, and at the far end of the beach there are some hidden coves to explore.

Local fishermen still use the beach as the launching point for their traditional fishing boats.  You can watch them land their catch, repair their nets and push their boat into the sea.
