If you’re idea of heaven is a villa holiday in the Costa del Sol and soaking up life in the sun, then Mijas will definitely live up to your expectations. On the other hand if you’ve got a more spirited side, and like to get out and about, then Mijas also has plenty to keep you occupied. Here are just a few of the activities and attractions you can experience on your villa holiday in the Costa del Sol.
Everything you need to know about the popular village of Mijas and surrounding areas such as Mijas Costa and Campo Mijas
If you are holidaying with children then the likelihood of being able to spend a week simply relaxing by the pool is very small! Kids need to be entertained and whilst your private pool can provide enough fun for most of the time a few days out will also be necessary no doubt. Tivoli World in Benalmadena is one of the largest theme parks on the Costa del Sol and it provides lots to do whatever your age.
The ‘Parque Aquatico Mijas’ is a large waterpark located in a handy spot just off the N340 outside the centre of Fuengirola. It’s easily reachable within 20 minutes’ drive if you are staying in any of the resort along the coast, from Benalmadena to Marbella. The park opens annually from early may to late September and prices start at 17 Euros for children up to 23 Euros for an adult. In my opinion this is good value for a full day of waterslides, whirlpools and rapids!
If you are enjoying a relaxing stay in your private holiday home on the Costa del Sol but feel like you want a change from soaking up the sun by your private pool then a trip to the famous and impressive Fuengirola Zoo is a must.
