Mijas Holidays ooze authentic, Mediterranean vibes. The enchanting mountainside village is perched 1500ft above sea level, hosting a traditional whitewashed town which overlooks the Sierra de Mijas and offers panoramic views of the coast below. If you want local culture, expect cobbled streets lined with well-kept tapas bars, quaint craft shops and donkey taxis ready to whisk you away, on holidays to Mijas.
La Cala (which forms part of the municipality of Mijas) is dotted with lovely little resort towns like Fuengirola and Marbella which, in addition to their wonderful beaches, are famous for their buzzing nightlife scene. The entire region thrives with tourism due to its established list of hotels and resorts which cater to every taste and budget, a variety of local attractions including historical museums, day trips, beaches and watersports, sightseeing tours and much more. Golfers also have several world-class golf courses to swing on including La Cala Golf, Santana Golf, El Chapparral and Mijas Golf.
Mijas town offers a laid-back atmosphere with a golden sandy beach and close proximity to neighbouring resorts, where you’ll find lots to see and do. While you’re here explore local attractions like church Santuario de la Virgen de la Peña, enter the (carved from rock) bullring Plaza de Toros located on its highest point, or visit the spectacular viewing promenade of Mijas Pueblo – you'll be blown away. Foodies are also in for a treat, as Mijas holidays boast plenty of dining options. Mijas Pueblo is home to authentic Spanish restaurants – the Secret Garden is an absolute must - all serving traditional tapas, fresh seafood and spectacular meats.
