Holidays to Mijas Costa
Mijas has a hippyish vibe at odds with its Costa del Sol location. Tumbling down from the hills and stretching 12km along the coast of southeast Spain, Mijas offers both developed resorts and rustic village life. Explore the area from the original Mijas village in the dusty, rocky hills before heading down to the coast. With lush beaches, hillside hikes and amazing local food there's no wonder it's long been thought the hippest holiday on the Costa del Sol.
