Mijas is a charming village situated at the foothill of the homonima mountains, and hosts a typical Andalusian hamlet. Its mountain village condition has had the capacity of harmoniously combining with an impressive tourist resort located on the coast of La Cala, that boasts a lovely twelve-kilometre beach. Mijas is an ideal place to visit by car and we recommend it to our Malaga car rental customers.
The historical old quarter, with an Arab and circumscriptive design in the mountain scenery, hosts interesting buildings in its whitewashed streets like churches, chapels and hermitages. Its surroundings still conserve some archaeological sites, that are witnesses of the village’s rich prehistoric past. Other emblematic attractions that Mijas offers, are the gastronomy, heiress to the rich Andalusian culinary tradition, and the deep-rooted fairs and other festive events.
Mijas village, Las Lagunas and La Cala de Mijas are the three faces of a municipality that has made the most of all its charm to offer one of the most enchanting tourist destinations on the Costa del Sol.
Mijas is the ideal destination for those who are searching for a place to enjoy the coast without having to miss out on all the typical attractions of the mountains of Malaga.
The hotels in Mijas offer a wide range of options for all tastes and budgets, located in the best areas of the municipality, whether it’s up in the mountains or down by the beach.
