Mijas in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia is one of the prettiest villages in Spain. Known for its whitewashed houses, this mountainside village has incredible views out over the Mediterranean and a relaxed atmosphere, perfect for sitting around in a lovely cafe enjoying a glass of wine and a bocadillo.

If you’ve been thinking of visiting Mijas, check out the video below. You’ll feel like you’re gazing out over the views or riding a burro up into the hills. Then you’ll really want to go there. Plus, it’s only 30 kilometers from Malaga, so not a huge trek.
