Holidays to Mijas Town
Nestled in the mountains some 438 metres above sea level, Mijas Town is an Andalucian maze of narrow, cobbled streets that’s home to many artists and writers. Life is laidback here and Mijas has managed to retain its traditional way of life despite the arrival of tourism, making it a true taste of Andalucia. Spend your time exploring local restaurants and craft shops, or head down to the coast for the more developed tourist beaches for long days sprawled out on the sand.
At over 4500m this is the longest of the Mijas Costa beaches and hosts a number of beach bars to keep you refreshed.
El Cabo Rocoso
One of the area’s quieter beaches, flanked by an ancient watchtower, it’s great for snorkelling and underwater swimming.
The history and architecture is impressive, but be prepared for a lot of stairs. Bring your own drinks and snacks.
Museo Carmen Thyssen
Here you'll find a showcase of some of the most beautiful Spanish artworks reflecting the history of the region.
If you want to do something a bit different, demonstrate your skills at this internationally popular skate park.
Arabian baths provide soothing pools, jacuzzis and a steam room, or just unwind with a relaxing massage.
Visit a street food stall to pick up the local specialty, 'garrapinadas' – sweet, caramelized almonds.
Heart of the village
La Plaza de la Constitucion is in the main hub in Mijas. You’ll find plenty of restaurants surrounding the fountain.
Mijas is a laidback resort, but that doesn’t stop the bars and restaurants staying open until the early hours.
Flamenco on the promenade
Head down to the beach at La Cala, where the promenade plays host to classical music and flamenco dancing in the summer.
