At first sight Mijas is the Andaluz pueblo blanco par excellence – its ancient white-washed houses clinging to the hillside surrounded by some of the best coastal views in Spain. In fact its beauty- and easy access from the coast- has made it a ‘mini resort’ in its own right with some 90% of the population now of foreign origin. Keep looking and you may just catch a glimpse of a hand glider wafting over the peak. Mijas is also well positioned for some of the area’s championship golf courses-including Los Lagos and Los Olivos- and the panoramic views really are superb!
