towns on the Coast. Fuengirola offers all the facilities of a major
tourist centre, restaurants, bars, discotheques, sports clubs, etc.

Mijas Pueblo Village
Tourism and the expatriate resident population have made their mark
on Mijas which has a distinctly cosmopolitan flavour with international
restaurants, clubs and bars. Yet the municipality has managed to
retain its old world charm and has a reputation as a holiday spot
for the more discerning tourist. You won't find any major boulevards
and main thoroughfares here - Mijas is a delightful maze of narrow
cobbled streets and archways with picture postcard houses, red tiled
roofs and balconies ablaze with brightly coloured geraniums.
A white village of character and charm, Mijas village sits above
the Mediterranean looking out across Fuengirola to the Mountains
of North Africa and the entrance to the Mediterranean. 5 miles from
the busy beach scene of the coast, it retains it's air of tranquility
and a glimpse of the old ways of Spanish life. Only 25 minutes from
Malaga or Marbella, 2 hours from Seville, Granada and Cordoba and
just over an hour to Gibraltar, the area is packed full of history,
architecture, romance and interest. For the less adventurous or
active it provides the perfect base from which to enjoy hot lazy
days and cool glasses of wine.
