There are many things to watch or do during your visit to Velez-Malaga. Entertainment here comes in various forms. Some are suitable for those who simply wish to observe, while others are ideal for those who really want to participate.
Visiting tourist spots
The town is full of tourist spots for visitors who just want to go places and watch the sights. the Camarin de la Virgen de la Piedad, Casa Cervantes, Casa Consistorial, Convento de las Carmelitas, Ermita Virgen de la Cabeza, Fuente de Fernando VI, Hospital de San Juan de Dios, La Alcazaba o Fortaleza, Iglesia de Santa Maria de la Encarnacion, and the Palacio del Marques de Beniel, are some of the places you can visit.
Taking part in fiestas and carnivals
If you prefer activities that require a little more participation from your end, you can take part in annual fiestas and carnivals instead. They're usually accompanied with music (both cultural and modern), an abundance of great food, vibrant colors, as well as a lot of singing and dancing.
You'll have to check with your travel agency for the specific dates when these events are to take place. Be forewarned that not all are lively. For instance, celebrations that are held during Semana Santa or Holy Week are mostly very solemn. Don't be surprised to see the locals, especially the older generations, in a mournful mood.
Participating in outdoor adventures

You can take part in Segway tours, Quad bike tours, horse riding, mountain biking adventures, or classic bike tours. There are also scuba diving adventures in some neighboring cities.
Chilling out in the Nightlife

You can start the night by feasting on seafood at Torre del Mar. Then you can go back to Velez-Malaga for some bar-hopping, great music, cold beverages, or delicious coffee in places like The Old Red Lion, Bar Guerra, Cafe Pub La Lonja, Los Amigos, and Pepe.
