The Mijas Hipodromo takes full advantage of the Costa del Sol climate by being able to hold races all year round. Many UK horse owners bring their horses over to Mijas once the UK seasons has finished. Situated in between El Chaparral Golf, close to the coast, the Hipodrome boasts excellent facilities and is now considered the largest leisure complex on the Costa del Sol.
The Mijas Hipodromo complex current facilities include:
