Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol

Mijas can be split into two main areas; Mijas Costa and Mijas Pueblo. Mijas Costa is popular among tourists and has a large English population, it is here that you will find the town's beaches and more hotel and apartment rental opportunities. Mijas Pueblo is the original old town of Mijas and boasts authentic Andalucian town houses, colourfully decorated with flora.

Just 25km from Malaga Airport on the popular Costa del Sol, this Mediterranean coastal town offers winter sun or a lively summer experience. Popular among tourists due to its' accessibility and inexpensive cost of living, Fuengirola has become one of the most popular destinations on this costa.

Home of the popular El Caminito del Rey walk, just south of the stunning Ardeles with its lakes and reservoirs and set in breathtakingly beautiful Andalucian countryside, El Chorro is an excellent destination for those looking for some country air.

Benalmadena is a coastal resort on the popular Costa del Sol with great accessibility from Malaga Airport (19km) and a short drive from popular destinations like Marbella, Torremolinos and Fuengirola. The town is made up of two main parts, the busier Benalmadena on the coast and the more authentic Benalmadena pueblo or old town as it is also known.

Estepona is a rare coastal destination - one of the few towns on the Costa del Sol to have retained its character and traditional feel, despite the influx of tourism in this part of Andalucia. The casco antiguo (old town) is what you'd expect from a picturesque Andalucian town - narrow, cobbled streets lined with beautiful stone houses and plazas, and walls ablaze with vibrant colour from the large variety of flora.

If you're looking for basic, central accommodation in Torremolinos, there is an increasing number of welcoming hostals in the town, especially in Calle del Peligro, which is just a short stroll from the Bajondillo beach. Some of them even have a sea view.
