Casares has to be one of the most picturesque and photographed white villages in the region with something for everyone. From its coastal borders, situated between Estepona and Manilva, the Casares coast offers peaceful beaches and spectacular scenery. The beautiful village is perched high on a hilltop, its whitewashed houses cascade down beneath the remains of a splendid Moorish castle. This is the real Spain; a working village with rich cultural heritage, unspoilt by tourism but central enough to provide an excellent base from which to explore.

Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with powdery sand and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing, surrounded by a dramatic mountain range. The town has, fortunately, managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise scenario which has been the inevitable result of the tourist boom in some of the coastal resorts. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with painted terraces abundant with cascading geraniums and if you listen carefully you can sometimes hear the melodic singing canaries.

This is by far our favorite restaurant in the whole Mijas Costa, and specifically La Cala de Mijas area. We usually walk from our apartment in La Cala de Mijas to get to this fantastic place. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the staff is very friendly and charming, and the food is to die for.Photos of Las Llaves, Mijas
