Beautiful old Spanish village with a charming atmosphere.The bus trip up boasts fabulous views if not a bit hair raising roung the bends.Lovely church,square bull ring and lovely gardens with views down to the cost.Free flamenco show in the square.Well worth a visit.

All seemed to work out very expensive, don't expect to pay that for family run typically Spanish place, guess looking back it was a bit touristy, we were tired and just sat down, but when the bill came to over 55 euros for what was mainly salads, we were horrifed!! It was OK, but we steered clear for the rest... More

We visited Mijas Pueblo whilst on holiday with Club La Costa.The village is simply full of charm and has amazing views. You can wander around all day if you wish to. We arrived mid-afternoon and decided to have a drink first,in one of the many cafes. We then went for a walk around the numerous shops.There are loads to visit... More

The views from the village are great if you go up to the top by the bull ring and church or the Capella. However if you drive after around the village there is a stop to park and see the village from above. There are hiking trails from town check in tourist office in town. Take water and go early...

We combined the blue (up) and yellow (down) trail and it was a perfect hour hike that was semi challenging at times but always offered breath-taking views! We lucked out with a few clouds - otherwise I'd imagine it'd be sweltering in direct sunlight. Highly recommend it!

Very atmospheric village set in the mountains with fabulous views down to the sea. It has an old religious shrine set in a cave, a very small bullring and lots of narrow streets. OK it's a bit commercialised now with horse & buggy rides, tourist shops & bars & restaurants galore. I've been there many times now & will probably... More

Mijas is a small mountain town that oversees parts of the Costa del Sol specially the beach area just before Marbella called Fuengirola. The panoramic views are stunning and the town itself has those small streets with small shops, cafes....etc. You can take a trip around the town with a donkey cart. It's around 30 min from Marbella and worth... More

This was pleasant enough, but never felt, to me, like a proper place..Lots of leather shops, obviously set up for tourists, as they were large, and didn`t look as though the locals used them, especially as the signs in these shops were written in what I thought was Japanese, and the fact that the place was full of Japanese tourists.All...

Many spanish towns have a hill town a few miles inland. Frigliana is Nerja's, and is nice enough. Mijas is Fuengirola's, and it is a cracker. A couple of euros gets you there from Fuengirola's bus station. At once, you are rewarded by the fantastic view to the coast. The bus stops in the town centre, which is almost traffic-free,... More
