Looking for things to do? One of the fun leisure activities Mijas is ajeep or buggy safari, or atrip with a quad . An original way to explore the innerland of the area.

Adventure for you, for example, organizes Eco Jeep Safari trips of 4 or 8 hours. accompanied by a guide, you will drive into the mountains with the jeep. You get enough time to enjoy the views, to take pictures and to get refreshed. Different routes are available. Such as: day trip with visit to Ronda, the Igualeja parauta and the natural park of Sierra de Ronda.

Buggy safari, is another adventure trip but this time in a buggy for 2 persons. You will drive next to the fields of avocados and olive trees into the mountains. Plashing through a river, taking a steep road into the mountain, it will give you for sure an adrenaline shot. Once on the top you have a magnificent view of the Costa del Sol. Trips available from 2 to 6 hours.

A third option is a ride with a Quad. after receiving the safety instruction, you can go on a trip of 2,3 or 6 hours with the quad. Be aware, this is no race of enduro style trip. It is not about speed but rather another way to explore nature and the surrounding area of Mijas. If you are looking for competition and speed, you can go to the 'Karting' race track of Mijas, next to the Hipodromo.

Besides these adventurous trips, what are the other activities or leisure in Mijas and surroundings? I have divided them up in several sub categories:

You can go to visit the different museums in Mijas Pueblo such as the Casa Museo or Plaza del Toros. If you can, visit the white village on Wednesdays as at noon you will have a flamenco show on the main square. The walk through the town with his spectacular views, churches, monuments and charming squares will give you a great day out!

The aqua park in Mijas is a fun day out for the whole family. Plenty of slides to ensure amusement for all ages. In Fuengirola, at only 10 minutes drive you find Biopark, a unique zoo. If you are interested by dolphins and Penguins, I recommend the Sea-life park in Fuengirola. Other zoos in the area are crocodile park, butterfly park and a bit further away the natural park for wolves in Antequera.

If you are looking for things to do in Mijas that are a bit more adventurous, try a quad trip into the mountains. Or go for a karting experience to the kart race track in Mijas near the hippodrome. Rock climbing is another activity that you can do in Mijas. Available for all levels. If you like horses, you can even go horseback riding into the mountains. Several ranches offer 2 or 4 hours trips.

Want to see the latest movie or have an evening out at the cinema. 3 different cinema complexes in the area offer the latest movies, sometimes even in the original version instead of the dubed spanish version. Multi cine Alfil and cinesur are located in Fuengirola. You also have a movie theatre in La Cañada of Marbella.

Every Sunday they organize bullfights in the Plaza del Toros in Mijas pueblo. This entertainement show is mostly accompanied with a flamenco show. At El Cartujano organizes weekly shows with Andalusian horses, including dinner and flamenco shows. A great night out. The Closest casino is located in Torrequebrada or Marbella.

These are just some of the things to do as leisure in Mijas, ou can find more detailed information on each of them in the grey boxes to your right.
