Mijas Tourism and Travel: Best of Mijas
Mijas is a lovely Andalusian town on the Costa del Sol, not far from Fuengirola. With 12 kilometres of coastline, including the La Cala de Mijas beach resort with its European blue flag, it is the perfect family friendly holiday destination for a spot of Mediterranean sun.
Aside from relaxing on La Cala de Mijas or one of the other beaches along Mijas's 12km of coastline, you can climb up to the white-washed village of Mijas Pueblo on the mountainside for stunning views across the Costa del Sol, Gibraltar, the Atlas Mountains and over to the African coastline. Mijas Pueblo is also the place to head to take a look at the traditional bull ring or to take a donkey trip on a short tour around the area. There are also at least seven golf courses in the area surrounding Mijas (with several more under construction). The streets of Mijas are very tourist friendly, and are full of independent shops selling hand made local crafts and products. The Mijas Aqua Park in nearby Las Lagunas is also well worth a visit with the whole family.
