There are some local history museums and many souvenir shops, Mijas also has seven golf courses (four more are under construction) including La Cala Resort the biggest golf resort in Spain. Like much of this coast, it continues to grow in urban development, although at a somewhat more low-key pace. In addition, there are several places to explore the countryside from horseback.
The municipality includes:
Mijas Pueblo (the hillside village)
Mijas Costa (main commercial and residential area adjacent to (but not strictly part of) Fuengirola
La Cala de Mijas (separate village and small resort by the sea to the west)
Las Lagunas (largely suburban and mixed commercial to the north of Fuengirola).
Other related information and how the village became known as Mijas
A famous hotel near Mijas known as Tamisa, relates back to ancient times. The history of the name ‘Tamisa’ dates back to the year 600 A.D. when the Tartessians founded the village of Mijas. The original name for the village was ‘Tamisa’, which subsequently changed to ‘Mixa’ and finally to ‘Mijas’ as it is known today. The Tartessians became important trading partners of the Phoenicians whose presence in Iberia dates from the eighth century BC.
