Mijas Costa is a diverse stretch of coastline on the Costa del Sol, nestled between Fuengirola and the east Marbella resort of Cabopino.
The area encompasses the popular holiday resorts of Calahonda, Riviera del Sol and La Cala de Mijas. Mijas Costa is an ideal destination for both family and friend holidays, with safe beaches and local shops, bars, restaurants and golf on hand in each resort. Mijas Costa is well placed to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol. The elegant resort of Marbella is just 15 minutes drive away and the whitewashed inland pueblos of Mijas, Coín and Alhaurín el Grande are also close by and worth a day trip.
Malaga City is around 30-40 minutes drive away depending on where you’re staying.
If you’re on holiday with children and looking for a fun day out, you don’t have to look far. The Parque Aquatico Mijas (Mijas Water Park) is a favourite with kids, with its water slides, wave pools, play islands, body skiing slides and much more. The water park is situated on the Mijas Costa, on the Mijas-Coin turn off. Heading in to Fuengirola you can visit Bioparc Fuengirola, a highly respected zoo, which has spent many years creating a space as close to the natural habitat of its residents as possible.
Mijas Pueblo is located twenty-three kilometres away from Malaga International Airport and fifteen minutes away by car from the beaches of Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol.
Mijas is a white washed village located four hundred and fifty metres above sea level and owing to its climate and terrain is popular for golf holidays.
Despite its huge popularity with tourists, Mijas Pueblo has somehow managed to retain much of its traditional Andalucian way of life, the locals displaying their unabashed passion for all things festive and an unmistakable relaxed outlook.
Mijas Golf has become one of the most popular golf complexes in Europe, known by the outstanding condition of their courses and the friendly atmosphere and excellent service provided to the clients.
The courses, Los Lagos and Los Olivos, are situated in the valley of Mijas, north of Fuengirola, only twenty minutes from the Málaga international airport and Marbella, and 3.5 kms. from the sea.
