Other Activities

Redtread´s number one passion is to ride bikes, but we understand that people bring along partners that may have other interests….

Whilst you can take full advantage of our gloriously sun bathed terraces, well stocked bar and refreshing private pool, we can offer some other local distractions apart from the delights of the shops and market of our local village

Scuba Diving

The Torrox based dive centre, Black Frog, is run by two PADI Professionals, Sara and Marcin, they are extremely knowledgeable about all things scuba diving.
They run an efficient PADI 5 Star Dive Center, providing PADI certified scuba diving courses and accompanied snorkeling and scuba dives along the coastline of the Costa del Sol. Their dives are easy access beach dives, with close shallow reefs and dive sites for snorkeling and scuba dives. We can also access deeper dive sites by boat. In the Mediterranean coastline of Malaga, there is an abundance of sea life, ranging from amazing colourful coral, mola-mola, fish, octopus, anemones and more. Dives are available all year round so just let Redtread know if you would like to book a trip and we will organise it for you.


If you prefer a more sedate day out, why not go for a day on the sea. There are different boats available for those with or without a boat licence, trips are four or eight hours long.

Horse Riding

No matter what your riding experience or ability, you are very welcome at Los Olivillos – they have 14 sure footed well behaved Spanish horses. Horse riding varies from gentle treks to the surrounding white villages of Competa, Frigiliana and  Torrox  through the breathtaking scenery of the National Park to the more extreme trekking across mountains to the Granada Province. All rides are led by an experienced guide.

Jeep Safari

The Jeep tour is recommended for those who want an insight to the Andalucian Mountains and the flora and fauna, wildlife and spectacular views of unspoiled coastline.

The day starts in the National park, where you will have a brilliant opportunity to see the wildlife of this unspoilt area. The local guide shares his knowledge of the area while explaining about the history, flora and fauna that is typical for this part of Andalucia. The tour then continues up to a vantage point with a spectacular view, where tea, coffee and soft drinks are available.

After further travel in the “Sierras” of Almijara and Tejeda, a stop at a restaurant with a fabulous view, offers the opportunity to enjoy an Andalucian meal. (Vegetarian option available)

The tour continues across the mountains once more, in the direction of a picturesque waterfall. Guests always remember that day out with the local guide, and remark that they have seen the traditional rural side of Spain, passing farmers and goat herders up in the mountains with the old fashion way of living.
