Life in Mijas Costa

Mijas_puebloMijas Costa is a community of significant size and diversity. It is located between Marbella to its west and Málaga city to its east. This position gives it the decided advantage of being close to the international airport and the train station in the city’s centre, which provides fast access to Madrid and Barcelona. Mijas areas Mijas is split into several areas, each with its own distinct delights:

– Mijas Pueblo is a typical ‘pueblo blanco’, but it is not a quiet village, bustling with life and culture. The auditorium hosts musical evenings with international stars, Mijas has art galleries and a number of hand-craft businesses as well as Mayan Monkey, a workshop where you learn how to make chocolate

– Mijas Costa comprises the main residential and commercial areas of Torrenueva, El Chaparral, Calahonda and Riviera del Sol

– Mijas Campo is its inland rural area and La Cala de Mijas is a seaside resort with a growing number of excellent restaurants and local amenities

Each has its own attractions, but Mijas Costa is the place to look if you want to be close to golf courses and some of the best shopping on the coast. Mijas for expats Mijas also has an excellent department to help new overseas residents with every aspect of Spanish life, and it was the first municipality in Spain to offer this service.
