All Inclusive Holidays

Mijas, Costa del Sol

All inclusive holidays to Mijas

Mijas Overview

Pretty mountain village: Perched up high in the mountains a little further inland than most other holidays to the Costa del Sol, Mijas is a stunningly authentic Spanish town. Just wandering around the narrow cobbled streets and white washed houses, you’ll take in amazing sights of the pine covered mountains looming over you. Almost every corner represents a photo opportunity for your holiday album!

Golfing delights: Mijas holidays 2019 are close to a number of excellent golf courses, with four of them being under 3km away from the centre of the resort. Alhaurin is the closes to Mijas – it’s an 18-hole par 72 golf course designed by a Spanish legend in the sport, Seve Ballesteros.

Activities in Mijas

Carromato de Max: This unusual museum celebrates all things small – so much so that it has decided to exhibit them in a suitably miniscule museum! But space isn’t the requirement here, especially to see amazingly tiny sights such as a picture of the Seven Wonders of the World carved onto a toothpick and a prayer written on the edge of a card. It’s truly an awe-inspiring attraction to visit on your holidays to Mijas.

Casa Museo: Another small rural museum, this one focuses on memorabilia from Mijas, principally farm tools, crafts and local artwork.

Golfing holidays: Of the four golf courses in Mijas, Alhaurin will be your best bet for convenience and ease of travel. Just under 3km away, its holes provide a good degree of challenge and have been designed by the golfing legend Seve Ballesteros. At just over 3km away, La Cala Golf Resort is also within easy reaching distance. This resort is a golfer’s dream, mainly because it’s so large it actually incorporates 3 courses representing 3 continents – Europe, Asia and America.

Sierra de Mijas: You can experience the Sierra de Mijas mountain range in its full glory by walking through it. The range begins to the north, directly behind the town of Mijas and spreads across thousands of square metres. Its highest point is the mountain of Pico Mijas, but even on lower ground you’ll still enjoy amazing views of pine forests and rocky cliffs.

Costa del Sol Racetrack: One of the best race courses in Spain, and a prized attraction in Costa del Sol. Races are staged every Friday and Saturday if you fancy a flutter whilst you’re on your holidays. There’s a fine dining restaurant within the race house and Fridays feature live jazz music too.

Beaches in Mijas

Playa de La Cala: Although Mijas is an inland resort, travel a little further south and you’ll come to the Mijas Costa, a 12km long stretch of coastline completely different in character to its inland namesake. La Cala is one of the main beaches of this stretch and has gloriously golden sand which was awarded the Blue Flag for its cleanliness.

Calahonda: Not to be confused with La Cala, at over 4.5km this golden sandy beach accounts for much of Mijas Costa’s 12km coastline. Leading into calm, shallow waters the beach is ideal for children on family holidays, although you’ll also see divers and fishermen further out to sea as the area is rich in marine life.

El Charcon: This small quiet beach is ideal if you fancy a change of pace. Far less crowded than the other beaches along Mijas, you can relax on your holidays and soak up the sunshine in this secluded spot.

Restaurants in Mijas

Oscars Tapas Bar: With vibrantly coloured tables and chairs set in a leafy courtyard, this atmospheric tapas restaurant is a real slice of sunshine for your holidays to Mijas. The menu is surprisingly varied too, in that it doesn’t just stick to your typical Spanish tapas cuisine.

La Mandragora: A complete contrast to the informal atmosphere of Oscars, La Mandragora puts sophisticated, creative twists on a variety of international cuisines. Dishes as diverse as Indian curry, Spanish paella and German Gulash are all represented here, as well as many others.

Devines: A home-from-home restaurant serving classic British food in the warm sun of Mijas holidays. The pies are delicious, hearty and filling and you must make it your mission to try their beautifully cooked steaks.

Nightlife in Mijas

Quiet drinks: Mijas holidays enjoys their status as quiet retreats in the mountains, so you won’t find many loud nightclubs or blaring bars here. However, there are a few restaurants in Mijas which also serve as bars, like the Beachclub La Familia. Bar Bananas and Tropico Bar also offer drinks until late, but the nightlife generally quietens down after 2am.

Shopping in Mijas

Local crafts: As expected, there are the usual touristy souvenir shops in Mijas, but search a little further and you’ll find a vibrant shopping experience offering lots of local crafts and delicacies. You’ll come across cheap leather stores, locally produced high-quality olive oil, handmade jewellery and crockery, tailored carpets and uniquely designed clothes. And that’s just to name but a few of the original things you’ll find when you’re shopping during holidays to Mijas!
