Although perfect for serious sun-worshipers and those wanting total rest and relaxation, Finca Los Gorriones is ideally placed for those who enjoy a more action packed holiday. Golf, walking, rock climbing, cycling, and even skiing during the winter months, are all within easy reach.

Golf

The famous Alhaurin Golf course, (pictured) designed by Sevianno Balesteros, is just under 10 minutes away. Whilst La Cala, Laura and Mijas Golf are about 15 minutes away. Costa del Sol is well-known as a golfer’s paradise.  If you are looking for more variety, there are more than 40 golf courses between Malaga and Gibraltar! Most of these golf courses are open to non-members. It is normally recommended that they are booked in advance in the busy season. Normally there are numerous day offers to include fees and buggy hire.

 

 

 

Walking

For those who like exploring by foot, there is an abundance of walkable routes in the area with several from Mijas Pueblo itself; maps can be obtained from the tourist information centre in the village. Using the bus or car you can access other walking routes of varying intensity/difficultly. Try climbing our local mountain, the Pico de Mijas, which rises impressively above Alhaurin el Grande. The walk is an arduous but straightforward climb to a decent altitude mostly through pine forest before emerging to superb views along the coast to the Sierra Nevada and Gibraltar.

Rock Climbing

For the more adventurous – and those with a head for heights – there is also organised rock climbing available in the village. Check out the tourist office for more information.

Cycling

This whole area is very popular with cyclists – both road and mountain bikers. Beware however, you need a strong pair of lungs and trained legs to cope with the hilly terrain, but the views are breath-taking!

Skiing

If you are enjoying a Winter break at the finca, you could also enjoy a day on the piste. Granada, with the Sierra Nevada slopes, is the most Southern ski resort in Europe and can be reached within two hours by car. Normally, there is snow from late November until early May. Ski hire and lift passes are available at the ski resort or in advance online. Excellent skiing and top quality facilities are available, including lessons and coaching.
