The road then divides and you keep to the RIGHT marked CADIZ and ALGECIRAS and filter into another road to the RIGHT again following CADIZ/ALGECIRAS signs. You will then see blue Autopista signs also saying CADIZ/ALGECIRAS and you filter again to the RIGHT. Proceed for about 15 km. The first sign for Mijas and Benalmadena No. 217 should be IGNORED (mountain route to Mijas). After this Benalmadena/Mijas turn off, there are large signs above the road splitting into two major lanes. One is marked Marbella/Estepona for the Toll Road A 7 to the left – do NOT TAKE THIS. Keep to the right and follow N.340 direction FUENGIROLA/MARBELLA/ALGECIRAS. Then keep on the extreme right and take Exit 214 MIJAS then 213. This slip road will bring you to a big roundabout – turn RIGHT here onto the A.387 in the direction of Mijas village – approx. 4 k.m. You proceed uphill passing the VALPARAISO Restaurant on the left, then CLUB PUERTA DEL SOL HOTEL also on the left. At the top of the hill is a ROUNDABOUT and the BP PETROL STATION. Pass the station and then take a RIGHT at the SECOND ROUNDABOUT (which is just after the first) signposted to Coin.

This road takes you round the mountain side for a few kms, and then to a Y junction on the west side of the village. At this point, take a left, coming back into the village, and almost immediately you will see El Mirador apartments on your right. There are parking spaces on your left opposite, you’ll probably want to park here for the holiday, but on arrival when you are looking to off load your suitcases, take an extreme right into El Mirador through the open gate, and follow the driveway round past all the garages to the end, by the gate to the pool. You can offload your bags here and then there are two short flights of steps up to the apartment, which is the second on your right (apartment 2, in block 2). But please remember not to park here and block entrance to the garages!

Alternatively you can take a train from the airport to Fuengirola, and then a bus or taxi to Mijas Pueblo, or contact us to arrange for an airport pick up.
