Mijas Pueblo

Mijas Pueblo is one of the most charming villages in Andalucia. Typically Andalucian, it attracts a mix of tourists, whilst at the same time being a beautiful place to live on a permanent basis. At 428 metres above sea level, you have the most spectacular views the coast has to offer.

It´s easy to appreciate why this preety town has become so popular with tourists. It´s traditionally cobbled whitewashed streets lead you through a mix of popular restaurants, and interesting craft shops - which are indicative of the many artists and writers who live in the area. The mix of tourists and locals give the town a quiet buzz, whilst still retaining a strong sense of Andalucian living.

Many residents also appreciate living here, because you can have the benefits of the excellent all year round climate, and slower paced way of village living; but with easy access to the more commercial areas of the coast. This village proves that it is certainly possible to have it all!

Mijas Costa

The beautiful Mijas Costa covers a 12km stretch of coastline from east to west, including El Chaparral, La Cala de Mijas, El Combo and Calahonda, and includes two major urbanizations in Riviera del Sol and Sitio de Calahonda.

The coast offers great beachlife activities, ranging from watersking, wakeboarding, and windsurfing, to mention a few. Of course you might just want to relax with a nice meal, and a glass of wine, and there are plenty of places to do this also. A recent boardwalk has recently been installed, allowing walkers to fully enjoy the whole coast in comfort. In short, the coast has it all for tourists, and residents alike.

La Cala

Calahonda
