Mijas is a large municipality of Malaga, with the famous towns of Torremolinos, Benalmadena & Fuengirola on the coastal side, however, the pueblo (village) of Mijas is much higher in the hills. There are also many golf courses and urbanizations in the area of Mijas with many foreigners choosing it as a second holiday home.
Coastal areas of Mijas remain more popular with foreigners. Its notable how many people refer to areas like Mijas or Estepona as Marbella, however Marbella is a totally different and separate Municipality.
Although many parts of Mijas now are too crowded and overdeveloped, there are parts that are being developed more exclusive and tranquil, with an abundance of quality restaurants, shops and beaches which we recommend compare to other parts. Ask our agents for more details. For those who are fans of TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) you will find Elliot Wright´s Bar in La Cala de Mijas by the beach. You may have seen his show where that he filmed for the opening of Olivia´s.
