RE: transportation from malaga airport to resort in Mijas

by libralady

hi, dont know if this answer is to late but haveing lived in mijas pueblo for a few years and still rent long term carihuela,when i can,i always get the train from the airport to torremolinos, or benalmadena there you can get the bus to mijas.it stops off at all parts and pueblos,even if you get a taxi from the above mentioned it doesnt cost as much as from the airport, the train station is just over the walk bridge at the airport, and cost something like one euro sixty cents, pay either in the machine, or on the train its self to the conductor.hope this is of some use...

Travel Tips for Mijas

A pool would be nice

by karenincalifornia

Mijas' weather is the same as the rest of Costa del Sol. It's not inland - it faces the sea, so it experiences the same weather. This means that the weather is pretty mild - definitely not hot like inland cities of Cordoba or Sevilla. Nonetheless, it does get warm enough that a swimming pool is an advantage in the afternoon in the summer. If you can, try to get accommodations with a pool. It made for a relaxing way to spend the afternoon while the rest of the Costa del Sol is having their siesta.

EL COMPAS VIEW POINT

by LoriPori

An excellent look-out point EL COMPAS VIEW POINT looks over the Mijas Valley and a large part of the Costa del Sol. The town itself is 428 metres above sea level and is situated at the foothills of the Cordon Montanoso del Litoral ( Coastal Mountain Range ).
Large binoculars are available to bring images closer up. The views are absolutely breathtaking especially on a clear day when you can see the Mediterranean Sea.

Cristobal's Place

by Golfo

There are lots of tourist bars in Mijas and, if you're willing to look, lots of real Spanish bars. But La Boveda is something different. It's run by my amigos Cristobal and his wife Maria and one or two of their daughters. He opens early in the morning and starts chopping up tomatoes for his special sandwiches. The bar begins to fill up with foreign artists who live in Mijas. Friendly holas are exchanged with the locals who pop in for quick cafe con leche (and sometimes an anis). It's a hangout where everyone feels at home. Nothing fancy... no TV, no gambling machines, no tapas. Spanish radio is the only musical entertainment. In the afternoon, Maria takes over until 11 or 12. Outside, there are tables adjusted to the slanting street. Cars, trucks, motos, horses and burros pass by within inches as La Boveda is at a tiny crossroads where mini traffic jams occur... hang on to your cerveza!
For something a little different, stop in for a quick refreshment while you're touring Mijas. La Boveda is not hard to find. It's just below the Plaza de la Constitución. And say Hola to Cristobal and Maria for me.

Look Up and Down

by hquittner

The town of Mijas is carved into the upperpart of the South face of the Sierra Mijas with a view down and over Fuengirola and the sea beyond. There is a belvedere that I did not venture ou onto but the vistas nearby are quite fine (somewhat diminished by the unseasoble weather). Rearing up above the town is the rest of the Sierra. The climb up here by bus was quite convoluted.

Santuario de la Virgen de la Pena

by karenincalifornia

The Santuario de la Virgin de la Pena is a small chapel built into a rock overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This is a shrine that was built back in 1586 in the spot where supposedly Virgin de la Pena, the patron saint of the Mijas village, miraculously appeared. The chapel is quaint and another room in the rock displays the ornate robes of higher ups in the Catholic church - cardinals maybe. They were pretty darn fancy and heavy looking. Not something I would want to wear in the Mediterranean climate.
