The enchanting village of Mijas is situated in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and is surrounded by pine forest.
The village nestles in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level and has a population of 7,500. The nearest main town is the Spanish sea-side resort Fuengirola (8km), Malaga airport is 25 mins by car. Mijas has managed to retain much of its “white village” charm, with cobbled, narrow winding streets, dazzling whitewashed walls and breathtaking views.
If I ever go to South Carolina…
I actually have a bit of a road trip fantasy to go up and down the east coast, hang out in the south east, and then out west across the Gulf. Charleston, here I come.
Lake Atitlán in Guatemala has seen a lot of development in recent years. I’d love to go while it’s still somewhat a quiet, peaceful place.
Boats (ferries) big beautiful bay, freshly caught seafood, great coffee, big green mountains, minutes away from the most stunning nature in the country.
