The Costa del Sol region
In the summer, the weather is very hot, but in Mijas you benefit from the sea breeze that just takes the sting out of the mid-day sun. In May/June and September/October as it is a bit cooler but still very warm. The winter period (November to March) is the best time for playing golf and exploring Andalucia by car. The temperatures are very pleasant and the skies are blue. You would be very unlucky to get a week of rain but the odd day or few hours has to be accepted as it is winter after all. One can even swim in the sea in winter as it still is reasonably warm from the summer months. The evenings do tend to be cool so you would be advised to bring a sweater or a jacket when you go out.
Mijas’ traditional status as a mountain village has been combined harmoniously with a major tourist complex located in the coastal enclave of La Cala, where there are 12 kilometres of beaches. The whitewashed streets of historic quarter, Arab in layout and nestling in the mountain landscape, houses some buildings of interest, among them some churches and hermitages. The surrounding area, meanwhile, preserves some archaeological sites, testimony to the towns rich prehistoric past. Not forgetting other attractions Mijas offers, such as its gastronomy, inherited from Andalusias rich culinary tradition and its deep-rooted custom of fairs and festivals.
Mijas town, Las Lagunas, La Cala... three sides to a locality which has made the most of the many charms it possesses to provide one of the most attractive tourist destinations on the Costa del Sol.
The excellent climate throughout the year, as well as the quality of the sea water, make Mijas an ideal destination for those who are looking for a place which allows them to enjoy the coastline without missing out on the attractions hidden in the mountains of Málaga. Mijas provides easy access to all major points on the Costa del Sol. Featuring among them are Málaga capital, which combines significant heritage, headed by the Citadel and the Castle of Gibralfaro, with an extensive choice of leisure options. Torremolinos, Benalmádena and Fuengirola are other towns with a deep-rooted tourist tradition. Inland, we will find villages with a mountain flavour such as Alhaurín el Grande, with its church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación and the palace of Montellano. In the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Reserve, in the heart of the mountains of Ronda, we can also see the most singular fir tree in the world, the Spanish fir.
