Mijas Car Hire

Car hire is advisable if you're holidaying in Mijas, especially if your accommodation is in the pueblo area which is about 15 minutes drive from the coast. With a car you'll be able to explore the ancient "white villages" around Ronda and take day trips around the extraordinarily beautiful Andalucian hinterland. There are some fascinating cities within easy driving distance - Seville, Cadiz, Cordoba, Jerez and Granada.

Seville, a couple of hours drive to the north west of Mijas, is the capital of Andalucia - the home of flamenco and a city rich in history and culture. Tour the bodegas and try the different sherries of Jerez where you can also witness magnificent displays of horsemanship at the Royal Equestrian School of Andalucia. Granada, an hour and a half's drive to the north east of the resort, is a vibrant city at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain - home to the truly awe-inspiring and world famous Alhambra Palace.

Gibraltar is only an hour and a half's drive south west along the coast - but be prepared for long delays at the border control point where the Spanish authorities operate a frustrating "go slow" policy in protest over Britain's supremacy of the hotly disputed rock. You could even take a day trip to Africa if you drive to the southernmost tip of Spain and get on a ferry from Algeciras to Tangier. Brace yourself for a lot of noise, unfamiliar smells and a great deal of pestering by the "salesmen" of the Kasbah.
