Guided walks above Mijas Pueblo 4 stars
I spent a very happy morning walking in the hills above Mijas Pueblo along with a very international and friendly group and the best thing was it was totally free! These walks are organised by Mijas Town Hall on Wednesdays and Saturdays and take around three hours to complete with several rest stops along the way.

If you fancy going along, call up and register with them and you can join the group for a variety of challenging hikes on well marked routes above Mijas Pueblo. The countryside is rough and rugged, the views over the sea are spectacular and it’s very satisfying to start your weekend with a challenging walk. The routes are well marked enough to do on your own, but I enjoyed the group atmosphere and the opportunity to meet people.

Mijas Pueblo 4 stars
This little white village perched on a plateau overlooking the Costa del Sol is a popular day trip from the coast, but still a very pretty place despite the tourists! You can spend a happy afternoon wandering the winding cobbled streets, looking at the picturesque white houses with their flower pots and discovering little plazas and gardens off the main drag.

There are some good restaurants and bars but the ones in the key tourist area can be overpriced. Try to go a little off the beaten track for better deals and better food. The main square also offers performances and festivities throughout the summer months, so keep an eye out for local ferias or festivals. Have a look at the cute donkeys available for the tourists and if you’re not too embarrassed take a ride around on one – a popular one with the kids I’m sure!

Lovely shopping in the narrow white streets of Mijas Pueblo 4 stars
Mijas is a fantastic place if you want to buy typical and artisan Andalusian products such as ceramics or traditional desserts, as well as any kind of souvenirs. The pretty narrow white streets are filled with shops that offer a great variatey of products. Even if you just want to do some "window shopping" you will enjoy just walking along the many streets. Mijas has the most affordable prices along the coast so if you are on holiday in the Costa del Sol a visit to this delightful small village will be worthy. You will find anything. Shops are open every day of the week (including Sundays) till late. I´ve been to Mijas several times and I always find something new. A classic Mijas souvenir are the little replicas of the donkey-taxi. Really cute! You will also find locals selling traditional "buñuelos" (fried dough covered in sugar and cinnamon). To get to the shops take the stairs right or left from the Main Square.

Free Flamenco Shows in Mijas Pueblo 4 stars
The Mijas Pueblo town hall offers a free 30 minutes Flamenco Show in the Mijas Main Square every Wednesday at 12.30pm. As flamenco shows tend to be pretty expensive in the Costa, between €25 to €30, this is a great opportunity to see a pinch of Flamenco. The dancers are beautiful dressed in traditional flamenco outfits but music is not life, which can´t compare to real "tablaos". The town hall also offers a free glass of wine to the attendants. There are not sits available so it is convenient to go a bit early to pick up a nice spot. Do not seat next to the wine table as when we went people started to queu for their wine right in front of us, which was pretty inconsiderate. Also some onlookers will pass by and stand right in front of you, so it can become a bit of a hassle. Still worthy for FREE!

Charming Mijas Pueblo "White Village" 5 stars
Mijas is one of the prettiest "pueblos blancos" (white villages), that I´ve visited in Andalusia. Mijas is small but very tourist friendly. We went for strolls around the many narrow and whitewashed walls streets. Whatever we looked we were surprised by the beautiuful mountain views of the Sierra de Mijas or the lovely sea views. One of the attractions of Mijas is the "Burro Taxi" (Donkey Taxi)which locals seemed to be very proud of. They donkeys looked really cute attired with bright colours, but I did not ride as I always feel for the poor little things. They were also Horse Carriages available. The streets bloom with colorful shops and gorgeous terrace restaurants.
Mijas is a very charming place that I highly recommend to visit!
