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.

La Cala De Mijas

La Cala De Mijas

La Cala de Mijas used to be a small fishing village and currently has a population of 10,000. The village is known for its immense natural beauty and effortlessly laid-back vibe. Potter around its quaint cafes, family-run craft shops, and inviting chiringuitos that line the sand. Don’t miss the bustling street market on Wednesdays and Sundays, full of activities with vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables and items of daily need. The Coastal Broadwalk, which opened in 2015, is a disabled friendly path that skirts across the scenic coastline and is very popular with tourists. Though small, there is plenty to hold your interest in this hilltop whitewashed village of La Cala de Mijas.

Cable Car Or Donkey Taxi?

The way you choose to explore the town of Mijas can be just as exciting as what you’ll see along the way. One moment you’ll be soaring through the skies on a cable car overlooking the mountains, the next you’ll be carted through the hilly streets by a donkey. Take a bus ride to Benalmadena and hop into a cable car (Teleférico Benalmádena) which will take you to the highest point of Malaga. En route, soak up fascinating views of the countryside and the Gulf of Gibraltor. The donkey or burro ride is also a great way to explore Mijas’ cobblestone pathways. Be gentle to the four-legged creatures, though.

 
Visit Quirky Museums

Despite its size, Mijas is home to some quirky museums that tourists will definitely find interesting. One, the collection of stage hypnotist and magician, Juan Elegido, contains interesting miniatures like a copy of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” on a grain of rice, a shrunken head and dressed-up stuffed fleas! The Contemporary Art Centre is a new addition, a small yet stylish museum also located in the town which exhibits a few Dali’s and Picasso’s among its art collection. If you’re artistically inclined, you could take part in some of the workshops held from time to time.

Tee Off At A Golf Course

Mijas has several scenic golf courses, prominent among them is The Los Lagos Course, the larger part of Mijas Golf Club. The scenic course is complete with lakes, soft slopes, and pretty forest trees – just a couple of the reasons it ranks easily among the top 100 in the country. For beginners, there is the Cerrado del Aguila, which is relatively flat and offers nice views of the sea. This seaside resort is home to six other courses, including the La Cala resort, which have Championship level facilities and host major events. So you can tee off to your heart’s content.
