Mijas Costa : Accommodation Only
If the idea of stretching out on a beach appeals to you Mijas Costa will tick all your boxes. This dazzling sliver of coastline drenched in long swathes of golden sands lapped by shimmering sea is a mecca for sun and beach lovers. Beach life here including the sun-soaked sands of Calahonda and La Cala is some of Spain's best.
Along the shoreline, you'll find a wealth of watersports and activities to enjoy, from windsurfing and pedaloes to water skiing and paragliding. When you tire of the beach, a string of touristy stores offer great shopping along the sands, and there are numerous beach cafés, Spanish eateries, along with a healthy selection of bars and tempting restaurants. In keeping with its Spanish flavour, Mijas Costa evenings are deliciously easy-going, with most people enjoying drinks and fruity Sangria by the sea watching the sun as it gently sets before settling at a friendly local restaurant with a mouth-watering paella for the night.
For a change of scenery, the mountain village of Mijas Pueblo is a short drive away, and don't forget to check out the street market in La Cala on a Wednesday and Saturday. Selling everything from fresh produce to local delicacies, you're sure to pick up a treat. Keen golfers too will also want to enjoy the world class golf clubs which nestle around the beautiful Sierra Mijas foothills.
