Mijas on the Costa del Sol in Southern Spain    by Anne Sewell
Mijas is located in the Spanish province of Malaga on the Costa del Sol in Andalucia.   The town consists of two separate areas - Mijas Pueblo - a traditional Spanish white village - and Mijas Costa - a modern coastal beach resort.  Mijas Costa is typical of all the Costa del Sol beach resorts with restaurants and bars near the beach.  In this article we are concentrating on the beautiful Mijas Pueblo.

Mijas Pueblo is a typical Andaluz village of whitewashed buildings, with winding narrow streets, and the proverbial geranium strewn balconies, perched high on the mountainside with spectacular views to the Mediterranean below and a scenic backdrop of mountains and endless pine forests.  On entering the village, it is possible to see the ancient spring, which provides natural mineral water.   Stroll the narrow, cobbled streets and breathe in the atmosphere - stop for a coffee or a glass of wine along the way and sit and watch the world go by.. then take a trip around the village in the famous donkey-drawn taxis of Mijas.... read more
