DONKEY taxis and horse-drawn carriages are no longer the only ways to get around Mijas Pueblo with the town turning to some wacky new ways of scaling its hilly paths.
A fleet of Tuk Tuks now provide a tourist trail with a difference while the police are set to roam the streets on Segways.
Mijas Town Hall has purchased two electric Segway-style vehicles and is also bidding for 26 new police motorbikes.
The eco-friendly, economical Segways can reach speeds of 20km/h and will facilitate police patrols along the coast and inland.
Meanwhile, Tuk Tuk Spain – brainchild of local entrepreneur Myriam van der Zalm – lets visitors career through the narrow alleyways of Mijas in a chauffeur-driven canary yellow chariot.
The brand new – and unconventional – company offers trips from 30 to 45 minutes and costs €7 to 9 per person.
