We fell in love with Mijas. The white little villages that line up on the Costa del Sol are famous. Mijas includes the old town center, also called Mijas Pueblo, and a beautiful beach with calm water.
Start the day on the beach. Preferably in one of the hip beach clubs that Mijas has to offer. Until the evening hours there are more families than the partying youth. We can especially recommend the Florida Beach Club and MAX Beach. You lie on comfortable beach chairs in the sand, always have a parasol over you. You can also order cool drinks and a snack or two from the lounger. The stretch of coast around Mijas is one of the most beautiful on the Costa del Sol. The water is calm and clear. The children enjoy being able to walk a few meters into the sea on their own.
Late afternoon is the perfect time to visit Mija’s old town. The way up there already gives an idea what a magnificent view awaits up in the village (it is on a slope directly by the sea). You don’t need a plan. The city is so small and invites you to just let yourself go. The path Passeo de la Muralle is an absolute must-see. It goes along the foothills of the old town with a view of the sea and the entire village. It is breathtakingly beautiful!
There are many local and tourist restaurants. If you fancy a delicious gazpacho and Spanish tapas, you are well served at Casa5. There is a small inner courtyard where the children are also in good hands.
We deliberately avoided the so-called donkey taxis in the city. Anyone who is in Mijas knows what is meant.
