Mijas is a great hill side village, the views are breath taking, the village is beautiful. The Junta put's on flamenco shows, tourist markets and traditional music during the summer months. It's a great place for hiking, hill walking and exploring. The streets and plaza's just keep on coming, all decorated with flower's. The restaurants have good views and good food. If the above is what you are looking for you have found it. It is a good place to use as a base to explore the Costa del Sol by car and the apartments are a bit cheaper there.
No beach and not on the trainline but the bus service is good. There are a few family attraction's not sure if there's a weeks worth.
Mijas is a great place to visit whilst on the Costa del Sol it's beautiful. There is alot to explore. With a car you have easy access to the whole Costa del Sol. All in all a great place for a holiday.
