The Area of Mijas

We have all heard the adage location, location, location...
Mijas is that location.

Mijas belongs to the region of Costa del Sol, a municipality in the Province of Málaga, Andalusia Spain just 30 minutes from Malaga international airport, and is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa del Sol. It is the heart of a culture and a revered region that encapsulates gastronomy, people, art, music, and history whilst boasting one of the world’s most envied climates.

Mijas has preserved many iconic historical places of interest and eats and breaths the flamboyant and rich tapestry of Spanish life´ whilst satisfying MODERN DAY NEEDS – somehow magically combining both making it a destination like no other.

Distinct Destinations

When looking for a property, there are three unique urban areas offering a variety of options: Mijas Pueblo, the heart of Mijas and THE charming traditional Andalucian “white village”, Las Lagunas on the coast (the most modern area of Mijas with industrial and commercial areas), and La Cala, a small seaside village in the centre of the 12 kilometres of beaches on the Mijas coast.

So if you’re looking for a property to purchase in Mijas, the first step is to decide ´where´ you want to be, what your budget is and ´what´ the purpose of your purchase will be. Is it a first, second (or perhaps third!) home, an investment property or to utilise as a holiday home that could earn you rental income, this will hone your search parameter to help find your perfect property?

The Jewel in the Crown...

One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol though is the beautiful little village of Mijas Pueblo, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 430 meters above sea level about 8km from the coast.

White washed walls, cobbled streets with iconic blue pots, an abundance of traditional tapas bars and the occasional celebrity frequented restaurants, combined with places of interest to visit and breath-taking views from its perch in the mountains means that Mijas Pueblo is the historical core of the municipality of Mijas in the heart of the Costa del Sol.

Placed in the Sierra de Mijas mountain range, it has a varied mountainous landscape and is surrounded by pine trees that offer natural shade and cooling breezes, hiking trails, flora and fauna and historical places to explore year round. Properties come in all shapes, sizes, styles and budgets but they are limited in supply and highly sought after for both holidaymakers and purchasers alike.

Mijas Pueblo is located only 8km from Fuengirola, the major tourist resort along the coast, ensuring its location offers the best of both mountain exclusivity and proximity to cosmopolitan life.

Looking for more of an active lifestyle...?

Those looking for a more active lifestyle and who wish to be closer to the sea, generally opt to purchase or rent in the Mijas Costa area, the stretch of land between Fuengirola and Marbella. This includes El Faro, La Cala de Mijas, Riviera del Sol, Miraflores, and Calahonda.  Aside from the traditional properties, these areas offer more new build apartments and townhouses, in particular off plan developments and great investment opportunities.

For Golf lovers, the Costa del Sol is also known as the ´Costa del Golf´ and runs through the Mijas region, offering some of the best golf courses in Europe and leisure opportunities and a variety of properties to suit all budgets.
