With its cobbled alleyways, stunning seas views, and white houses decorated with brightly coloured flower pots, Mijas pueblo is the perfect Valentine’s getaway for you and that special someone.
Stroll around the pretty streets, do a spot of shopping in one of the many artisanal shops, and soak up the views at one of the town’s viewpoints.
If you want to whisk your partner away to Mijas Pueblo this Valentine’s, here are some ideas to make it truly special.
Mija Pueblo’s ‘Plaza de la Constitucion’ (Constitution Square) is the best place to head for a romantic lunch with your Valentine.
Mijas Pueblo boasts an impressive array of stellar dining experiences, however, the Alcazaba Restaurant is one of the most eye-catching.
The restaurant offers incredible views over the Mijas coastline and there are options for indoor dining or outdoor dining on the terrace.
Mayan Monkey Mijas is the world’s smallest chocolate factory and the ideal spot to treat your sweetheart to something sweet on Valentine’s Day.
Forget a boring box of chocolates, why not indulge yourselves and sample some homemade chocolate or ice cream.
Imogen recommends visiting the Mayan Monkey Chocolate Factory for Valentine’s this year, noting: “After recently visiting the chocolate factory to make chocolate bars and bonbons, we recommend a visit this Valentine’s.”
“We had an absolutely amazing experience and all the staff were lovely! Especially the lady who helped us make the chocolate, we finished a little early so she gave us a tour too and explained all about the machines.”
Mijas Pueblo has incredible views over the Mediterranean.
However, if you fancy an even more spectacular view, there are several hiking trails that start at the edge of the village and take you up into the Sierra de Mijas.
From Pico Mijas, you can see all the way past Gibraltar to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
For a truly romantic Valentine’s in Mijas Pueblo, pack a picnic and some champers and head into the mountains with that special someone.
Located on the grounds of an ancient fortress, the Muralla Gardens are a must-see for any hopeless romantics visiting Mijas Pueblo.
On your way to these gorgeous botanical gardens, stop off at the old bullring and San Sebastian church for a spot of culture.
From the gardens, you can see some of the best views of the coast.
If you visit Mijas Pueblo during the week, you may just stumble upon a free Flamenco show in the gardens. It usually takes place on Wednesdays.
