Things to do in Mijas Costa
Mijas Costa is well placed to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol. The elegant resort of Marbella is just a 15-minute drive away and the white-washed inland pueblos of Mijas, Coin and Alhaurin el Grande are also close by and worth a day trip. The charming historical city of Malaga is around a 30-minute drive away.
If you’re on holiday in Mijas Costa with children and looking for a fun day out, you don’t have to look far. The Parque Acuatico Mijas water park is a firm favourite with kids and adults alike, with its water slides, wave pools, play islands and sunbathing areas. If you head into Fuengirola you can visit Bioparc Fuengirola, a state-of-the-art zoo, which has spent many years creating a space as close to the natural habitat of its residents as possible.
Beaches in Mijas Costa
Mijas Costa is the perfect holiday destination for lazy beach holidays. You have both the beach and excellent amenities on your doorstep. It’s an easy hop from one beach resort to another along the Costa stretch. Although car hire is recommended, it’s not essential as the local bus and train service is cheap and regular. The mountain village of Mijas doesn’t have a beach of its own, but a sweeping stretch of golden sand is just a 15-minute drive away down in the seaside town of Fuengirola. The resort is dotted with rustic eating places called chiringuitos, and you’ll also find a pretty promenade lined with bars and restaurants leading all the way to one of Spain’s most quaint harbours offering evening trips out along the coast.
Lined with palms and a clear, calm sea, Playa de la Casa Mijas is easy to access by bus and has many places to eat and drink on the boardwalk. Further west, the busy Playa de Calahonda has a fantastic beach, a lively promenade, and a range of bars and restaurants where you can stop and relax.
