Mijas Costa. La Cala.
During the summer, Mijas Costa comes alive as many people from overseas come to visit the area. One of the most popular activities are the local ‘chiringuitos’, beach bars that often serve grilled fresh fish, which Malaga is famous for. Walking along the beach, you can see some old fishing boats have been turned into grills to cook fresh sardines. For those golf enthusiasts, without a doubt it’s a more than recommendable destination, as Mijas has some of the most well-known golf courses on the Costa del Sol.
