If you are considering investing in property on the beautiful Costa del Sol but have not yet decided in which area, today we bring you several reasons why to live in Mijas. One of the most beautiful municipalities on the coast of Malaga.
With privileged views of the Mediterranean Sea, its traditional Andalusian charm, quality of life and variety of leisure options and outdoor activities make Mijas an idyllic place for the construction of real estate projects. The Malaga municipality has an abundant supply of new construction and it is not surprising, since on several occasions it has been considered one of the best municipalities to live in on the Costa del Sol.
Best areas to live in Mijas
The Costa del Sol is an unpolished jewel for all those who are looking to invest in real estate projects, either to enjoy them personally or to obtain economic benefits from them. Marbella, Fuengirola or Benalmadena are some of the municipalities where the demand for new beachfront housing is booming.
However, there is a place that stands out above the rest for being one of the most beautiful municipalities to live in the Costa del Sol. We are talking about Mijas, the third largest town in the province, located 34 kilometers southwest of Malaga. It is divided into three main urban centers: Mijas Pueblo, Las Lagunas and La Cala de Mijas. Let's take a closer look at each of these areas:
When we think of the coastal towns of Andalusia we imagine the typical white houses, the red tiled roofs, the patios and gardens full of vegetation and decorative tiles. Undoubtedly, a traditional beauty that surrounds us with every step we take. Mijas Pueblo could not be different, it was awarded in 1969 as a Historic-Artistic Site for being a superb enclave. If you choose to live in its picturesque old town, you can enjoy a quiet and authentic life in a unique environment. Its cobblestone streets, squares, beautiful panoramic views, green vegetation, culture and vibrant atmosphere make it a dream residence.
Its municipality extends from the northeast of Fuengirola to the Sierra de Mijas, an ideal destination for lovers of hiking and outdoor activities. In the old town, its steep streets gave rise to the peculiar donkey cabs, and you can find a number of historic and picturesque buildings such as its tiny Plaza de Toros, hermitages of the seventeenth century and remains of an Arab wall.
This is the newest area of Mijas, where the industrial and commercial center of the municipality has been developed. It borders the Campo de Mijas, a residential area that goes from the village to Fuengirola. Cultural centers, theaters, cinemas, parks and recreational spaces can be found in Mijas, the most cosmopolitan area of the city.
Here you will find Jardines de las Lagunas, a luxurious residential complex composed of 2 Phases and more than 200 homes with spacious and bright rooms in front of the captivating Mediterranean Sea. If you are fond of golf, good food and entertainment, these apartments with rooms up to 123 m2 are the perfect place to find your new home on the Costa del Sol. The functional design of its spaces, the quality finishes and its common areas with swimming pool, gardens and play areas for children make it the home of your dreams.
Jardines de las Lagunas I and II are strategically located in the area of greatest growth and transformation of the municipality, very close to the best commercial offer of the Costa del Sol: the Myramar shopping center, the largest center of opportunities of El Corte Ingles on the Costa del Sol, the future Parque Periurbano, among others.
Las Lagunas is one of the best areas to live in Mijas, of that we have no doubt. So much so that Prime Invest has chosen this area to build the new phase of the residential area Jardines de las Lagunas II. The state of the work is off plan and the offer of rooms ranges from one to three. Depending on your choice you can enjoy an apartment from 65m2 to 150m2.
La Cala de Mijas
If you are looking for a home where you can enjoy first hand the breeze and the views of the Mediterranean coast, the area of La Cala is your choice. The second area of the Costa del Sol with more demand and completed projects. La Cala arises from a small fishing village that has experienced a steady growth thanks to the creation of various residential communities that take advantage of its proximity to the coast and golf courses, making it an idyllic enclave.
The renowned golf courses of El Chaparral, Calanova and La Cala Golf, as well as the racecourse, are located in this area, four first class facilities that provide exceptional opportunities for horseback riding and golf.
This place seems to be made for sports enthusiasts. Here is located the Evergreen Homes project, a sophisticated urbanization in the green lung of the Costa del Sol. It has common areas such as outdoor swimming pools, gardens, leisure spaces, sports centers and plenty of natural light, designed to be more than your home, your favorite place in the world.
