Cómpeta is an ideal starting point for walks. Several hiking routes are available in the Guest's Guide. A local organisation also offers hiking arrangements, for both individuals and groups. A Landrover will take you far into the nature reserve, so you can reach places you wouln't otherwise be able to visit. In clear conditions, you can see the Rif mountains in Marocco and the Sierra Nevada. Afterwards, the Landrover will take you back. Once a week, on Wednesdays, a Landrover safari into the nature reserve is organized from Cómpeta.

Additionally, there are two horse riding schools organizing horseback trips through the reserve.

In winter you can reach the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada from Cómpeta in a mere two hours. There are more than 75 kilometers of marked tracks for every skill level. The ski season runs from end of November to end of April. Ski lifts will take you up to altitudes of 3,200 meters. Skis and shoes are for rent on location.

Looking for a creative way to spend your stay in Los dos Algarrobos? How about a mosaic or sculpture class? Classes are taught by a local artist living in Cómpeta and last a week: from Monday to Friday. Starting dates for 2010 are in the Guest's Guide.

In the vicinity there are several language schools offering Spanish courses.

There are three golf courses on the coast, East of Malaga. The closest is the 18 hole course of Caleta de Velez, twenty kilometers from Cómpeta.

Finally, there are many opportunities for water sports and deep sea diving.
