One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol is the beautiful little village of Mijas, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level; it is a superb choice for either holiday or full time living. Of the 7,500 population and just below Mijas Pueblo is Mijas Costa. Mijas Costa has that magic combination of sun, sand and water sports. The beaches at La Cala have been awarded the 'Blue Flag' as among the best in the province, and are geared to provide action: jet skiing, water skiing and parasailing are all on the go. Be sure to check out the chiringuito charm here too, where you can sample a variety of Spanish seafood eaten with the favourite holiday drink, tinto de verano, ordinary red wine topped up with carbonated water, either regular or lemon-flavoured. The Mijas municipality covers an impressive 148 sq km and includes two major urbanisations, Sitio de Calahonda and Riviera del Sol. The former is informally known as the English village in Spain and the place to come for karaoke, second hand shops, British doctors and dentists, Indian restaurants, imported foods and, naturally enough, a plentiful choice of pubs. The nearby Riviera del Sol is similarly inviting and popular among foreigners, particularly the large commercial centre with its bar, telephone booths and grocery store combined. The sports centre is also well equipped and includes an 18-hole golf course and thriving tennis club. The many complexes in Mijas Costa are home to much of the area's expatriate population, composed mainly of British, Germans and Scandinavians. The area is marked by lots of pretty coves and beaches with housing complexes (urbanizations) behind. Most of the complexes are carefully designed to incorporate Spanish influence and care has been taken not to produce concrete monstrosities, but extensive building development means that it looks likely that many of the urbanizations will soon join to form a town of their own. Mijas Costa also boasts some of the coast's more famous
