Re: TRANSPORT FROM MIJAS COSTA TO FUENGIROLA

I think you need the CTSA-Portillo 220 bus that runs from Marbella to Fuengirola bus station.
Have a look at the route here:

Re: TRANSPORT FROM MIJAS COSTA TO FUENGIROLA

by tigersharkjs

From Mijas costa, there is a "city" bus that runs right along the coast highway, and goes to Malaga. I would probably take a bus to the train station in either Fuengirola or Torremolinos (or a taxi would be quicker). The train goes right to the Malaga airport. Or just grab a taxi to the airport..should be 20/25 euros

Travel Tips for Mijas

One of the best Options in the area

by blint

Maybe you feel I have complained too much about Mijas being overrun by tourists, which it is ;) but it is still one of the nicer places to see here and attracts many people from Northern Spain too.

I understand that if you have never been to this area of Spain before you will find it beautiful. If you prefer the real I'm on holiday not travelling atmosphere it is a good choice for you too. It is nothing like North America or Northern Europe.

Maybe it's just living in Cadiz and preferring the more off the beaten path white towns that makes me more cynical.

There are of course a growing number of tourists all over Andalucia which apart from the ports and agriculture are the main source of income for the region, so I shouldn't complain too much.

Just remember that if you are the type of person that complains about Britain or your country being over run by frogs, krauts and foreigners which don't speak the language then go red faced as your fellow countrymen are the same abroad. Mijas is not only full of tourists but ex pats too, many of whom survive on catering to the foreign tourists and don't ever manage to learn a lot of Spanish.

Please note that I am also a pale skinned ex pat living and working in Cadiz. For some strange reason I get embarrassed by the Costa del Sol being over run by non Spanish speaking ex pats. When I arrived seven and a half years ago I of course couldn't speak Spanish, but living in a then not at all tourist town picked it up quickly to survive.

Saying that Mijas is not as bad as other towns along the Costa del Sol and attracts a more cultured tourist than a lot of the 18 to 30's resort towns.

I just like being the only guiri (foreigner) in the neighbourhood ;) you can't always get what you want though!

White Houses and Green Hills

by Geoff_Wright

Our visit to Mijas coincided with some of the worst weather the Costa Del Sol had experienced in years. The temperature was pretty cool, not chilly, and the mountains were shrowded in mist. It actually made our visit all the better because the town was not full of tourists!! Parking can be a problem but Carmen found somewhere on the edge of town, so we had rather a nice 'walk' from one end to the other.

Shrine of Calvario

by karenincalifornia

If you are in the mood for a pilgrimage of sorts, walk up to the Shrine of Calvario, which is perched high on the hillside. It's not incredibly old - just dates back to 1710, but it is worth the visit for the view of the Mediterranean and the Costa del Sol. To get there, take a winding path, marked by iron crosses from the village. The interior is open only on easter Friday, but the panoramic vista is open every day of the year.

Plaza del Toro

by AlexeRoy

Very small stadium. Very typical. Loved it. I really felt the magic of the corrida. There was no show but if you sit in the stands for a few minutes let your imagination do the job and you will see a corrida! Very pleasant visit! Built in 1900.
About 4 euros to go in! Nice souvenir shop!

El zoco

by blint

The photo is taken from the small Zoco looking down on the square below.

The Zoco (Arabic market) is true to it's name and consists of an arcade full or Moroccan shops selling leather goods. The goods are probably imported straight from Fez or somewhere similar if you fancy buying a bag or jacket.

There is a shop selling other Moroccan products as well and also a few art, sculpture or artisan shops nearby.

If you can't make your mind up then why not have a quick drink in the square below to help you get your thoughts in order and make that all important decision: Leather bag or small nude sculpture?
