Gourmet route in Mijas


As you know at Hotel Florida Spa we love good food, so this week on our blog we would like to recommend you an excellent gourmet route organised by the Mijas Council.  

This gourmet route started on the 15th of March and will be on until Sunday the 14th  of Abril, from 12:30 P.M to 3:00 P.M and from 7:00 to 11:00 P.M

8 well-known restaurants in Mijas Pueblo participate in this route (Latitud 36, Bodega del Pintor, Alboka Gastro, Koko Café, Chemas Terrace, Restaurante Fiesta, La Cucina di Nico, y Restaurante Triana). For a fixed price of 19 euros per person each of these restaurants offer a full menu that consists of a starter, a main dish, a dessert and half a bottle of wine.  

A gourmet passport will be given to those who order the gourmet menus. The passports will have to be handed in at the tourist office of Mijas or La Cala before the 30th of April, for a chance to win a five-day cruise for two people departing from Malaga.

If you love tasting new things, you have the fortune to be on holiday with us and you were also planning to visit Mijas, we certainly recommend you give a try to this superb gourmet route.

Bon appétit!

Because of this, today we would like to tell you about a beautiful event organised by the Benalmadena Council together with the Holiday World Group for this Sunday, the 7th of April.

The event we are talking about is the 4th edition of the charity race “Holiday World”.  This will start at 10:00 A.M. in the elephants roundabout in Benalmádena Costa.

If you are a fond runner and would like to participate in it, you might like to know that it is either a 21-, 10- or 5-kilometre race and signing up is 17 or 12 euros per person depending on the distance.

The funds raised are for “Proyecto Hombre”, an organisation that fights against addictions.

You can sign up online by visiting the DORSNAL CHIP website
