The White Villages
This is a pleasant morning trip inland through the white villages of Monda and Ojen to reach the most fertile valley of the region, packed full with lemon orchards, orange and olive plantations. Before you move on to Mijas, we have planned a stop in Alhaurin el Grande, for a visit of the local fruit market. In Mijas, enjoy its aquarelle of gleaming white houses where bright splashes of bougainvillea and geraniums spill over garden walls and windowsills. Stroll through the narrow cobbled streets of this Andalucian village; as you discover what has attracted artists to this mountain town, which offers wonderful panoramic views over the Mediterranean. Sidewalk cafes and shops surround the popular village square. A short walk up the slope brings you to one of the few square-shaped rings in Spain. From the terrace of a small church you'll have a marvelous view of Fuengirola and the coast. A refreshing soft drink will be served at a local cafe during the tour. Enjoy some free time to browse into the local craft and souvenir shops, adorned with colorful local pottery. Before returning to the yacht, pass through Fuengirola and the holiday resorts along the coast. We admit, Mijas is a bit on the "touristy" side but nevertheless we always enjoy returning to soak in the lovely setting.
