“Mijas Village”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

This was pleasant enough, but never felt, to me, like a proper place..Lots of leather shops, obviously set up for tourists, as they were large, and didn`t look as though the locals used them, especially as the signs in these shops were written in what I thought was Japanese, and the fact that the place was full of Japanese tourists.All a bit too contrived for me, I`m afraid. The views were nice, and it had a wee bull ring, but still didn`t do it for me.

“Don't miss this.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012

Many spanish towns have a hill town a few miles inland. Frigliana is Nerja's, and is nice enough.
Mijas is Fuengirola's, and it is a cracker.

A couple of euros gets you there from Fuengirola's bus station. At once, you are rewarded by the fantastic view to the coast. The bus stops in the town centre, which is almost traffic-free, and off you go for a great day out.

This place is undoubtedly touristy, but has some upmarket shopping for leather and ceramics. Wander around for an hour, then have lunch. Watch the dancing in the square, see the patient donkey taxis - what's not to like ?

“What a hike but what a view!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

View from the village itself is fantastic but a 2 hour tiring, all-uphill hike from the village through rocky trails (didn't think I was going to make it!!)to the top of the Picos rewards you with a view that is simply spectacular of the whole of the province of Malaga - & back downhill again is great!
