Mountainside magnificence

Mijas has managed to retain its original charm, boasting narrow cobbled streets and a traditional atmosphere. From well-kept tapas bars and locally-owned cafés to quaint craft shops selling unique, handcrafted pottery, Mijas wraps up all the typical flavours of southernmost Spain in one spellbinding spot.

Viva la fiesta!

September brings the annual Mijas Fair, held in honour of the town’s patron saint, making the main square a hive of activity. Stalls offering an array of traditional fare are all over, while local women turn out in their finest flamenco dresses to dance the Sevilliana – a real spectacle!

Get sporty

You’re set to enter a golf enthusiast’s paradise, with eight immaculate greens on tap. For something a little more fast-paced, Mijas’ former racecourse is just 13km from the town, where you can try go-karting. As for water-based activities, La Cala beach merges swimming with wild water sports.
