Covering a 12-kilometre slice of coast

Mijas holidays will take you to a white-washed village high on a hill above the Costa del Sol. Stunning views will leave you breathless

Discover a cavalry of beach cafes, shops and Spanish eateries

As will the walk to the top of village unless you take advantage of the traditional donkey-taxis! Mijas, or Tamisa as it was once called dates back to 600 AD and still retains its traditional feel to this day. Mijas attracts mainly couples or friends who are looking for a relaxing break away. Only a 30 minute transfer from Malaga airport, its ideal for a short break away.

Accommodation here is mainly Self Catering, as there are so many restaurants and bars and it would be a shame to lock yourself away in a hotel when you have traveled to such a beautiful part Spain. As you wander through the narrow, cobbled streets you can see the attraction of Andalucian way of life. Artists sit painting in the street; hand made pottery can be bought from the local craft shops. Holidays in Mijas will make you feel you’ve stepped back in time. Quaint and charming, you won’t want to leave!

Stick around for sunset – indulging in ice-cold sangria and mouth-watering paella

When it comes to lunchtime, a favourite is grilled sardines caught fresh that morning and barbecued, served with salad and a jug of sangria to wash it down. To share of course! If you can tear yourself away and want to explore the coast, take a trip to Benalmadena marina which houses some of the most stunning yachts, and upmarket boutiques and restaurants, there is also Tivoli World, a theme park which the kids, and big kids, will love.

Getting around is easy, the train is the most popular mode of transport here, as are the buses which are both excellent value. You can book your holidays to Mijas here on
