It has a superbly dramatic location, and owes its name to the encircling Serrande de Ronda.

Originally a humble village, it is now the richest town in the province. Since finding favour with discerning bohemian artists and writers in the 1960’s, Mijas has sprawled across the surrounding hills and down to the coast, yet managed to retain the picturesque charm of the original pueblo (village). Perched in the mountains above the coast, this village is a cluster of whitewashed buildings nestled into the mountainside. Mijas offers a glimpse of village life with its narrow cobblestoned streets and whitewashed buildings. Back at the hotel dinner (optional) will be served before your private coach transfer to Malaga Airport for your return flight to Malta departing at 2330hrs.
