Mijas Tourist Traps: 7 reviews and 10 photos
We arrived on our first day in Mijas at 4:00 pm and just about everything is closed down until 8:00 pm. except for the cheap paella places and souvenir shops around the town center. That was our introduction to Mijas, and not a very good one.
Don't judge Mijas by its souvenir shops, cheap paella eateries and donkey stands or what it looks like in the afternoon. I made that mistake on the first day. However, once we were there and started exploring the town in the morning and evening, we discovered a very different Mijas. The Mijas we then got to know was a vibrant, beautiful white town with upscale shops (typically not open in the afternoon) and a wide variety of excellent restaurants and cafes. I learned not to judge a book by its cover.
Fun Alternatives: Bypass those souvenir shops and explore the shops off the main plaza in the morning.
