A mixed resident population gives it a cosmopolitan flavour with international restaurants, clubs and bars. There are no major boulevards and main thoroughfares here but rather a delightful maze of narrow cobbled streets and archways with picture postcard houses. Down at the coast, about 15 minutes by car from the village, you'll find Mijas Costa which seems like a world away from the pueblo. This area was once a small, charming fishing village but has now been transformed into a popular beach resort with watersports, bars, restaurants and all the trappings of modern day tourism including the longest promenade in Southern Spain. It is centrally situated for all the amenities of the Costa del Sol.
