Benalmadena




Benalmadena is a municipality in the province of Malaga consisting of three main areas: Benalmadena Pueblo, Benalmadena Costa and Arroyo de la Miel. The city of Malaga (and the nearest airport) is about 12 km to the west, and Marbella is 42 km to the east. The area has grown rapidly in recent decades due to tourism and has become one of the Costa del Sol's prime holiday spots.




With a wide and varied array of activities, no visitor will be bored when visiting Benalmadena, a town which is more than just a resort.




Choose from a wide selection of villas and apartments in Benalmadena for your next holiday.




Climate




Benalmadena enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures are an average of 30 ºC in summer and 17 ºC in winter.




Beaches




Benalmadena’s beaches are mainly centred around Puerto Marina. They vary from wide, sandy beaches perfect for families to more rocky beaches that are best suited for serious swimmers. If you don’t mind leaving Puerto Marina and Benalmadena Costa, head towards Torremuelle, where you will find quieter and emptier beaches. If you search well you will also stumble upon secluded coves that double as nudist beaches. One of these apartments and villas in Torremuelle would be the perfect base to discover the unknown beaches of Benalmadena.

Things to do and places to be




Benalmadena Costa is home to the majority of the area's attractions, most importantly the golden sandy beaches. There are many restaurants and bars that serve food from all over the world. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere all year round makes it a beloved destination for families.




El Parque de la Paloma is a gorgeous and extensive park in the centre of Benalmadena Costa. There is a stunning array of both local and exotic plants, and there are many animals such as hens, rabbits and exotic birds walking freely around the park. It is beautifully landscaped with themed gardens and rocky waterfalls, which run down to a lake. Next to La Paloma Park you will find Selwo Marina, the sister to Selwo Adventure Park which is further down the coast. You can view dolphins, sea lions, crocodiles, exotic birds and snakes. A penguin habitation has been installed recently, giving a glimpse of the Antarctic in Andalucia.

A promenade connects Benalmadena Costa to Puerto Marina (Marine Port), which offers excellent shopping and dining. The marina is also home to The Sea Life Centre, where you will find all manners of marine wildlife. It has a petting tank where you can pet the rays.

With any of these apartments and villas in Puerto Marina you can enjoy the nightlife of Benalmadena!




Arroyo de la Miel used to be a former sleepy village, but now it links Benalmadena Pueblo to Benalmadena Costa, which means it is right in the centre of the municipality. It has grown into a fantastic area for getting a bite to eat and shopping to your hearts content. The train station is also found in Arroyo, which links the town all along the coast from Malaga to Fuengirola.




You can take a cable car to the top of Mount Calamorro where you can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of the Mediterranean. .

Benalmadena Pueblo is the original village, set back from the coast on the foot of Mount Calamorro.

Benalmadena is home to many events such as the Festival de Verano (Summer Festival), where you can enjoy live music, street theatre and lots of other activities. During summer you can also watch films on the beach for free (Cine de Verano). There are also two food festivals where you can sample all the seafood Benalmadena has to offer.




Apart from festivals, there are also a lot of culturally significant places in the town. For example, the Buddhist Enlightenment Stupa in Benalmadena Pueblo is the largest Stupa in the Western world. It is 33 metres tall and is a point of interest for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.




Cuisine




Benalmadena’s cuisine is wide and varies from restaurants offering typical Spanish dishes, with lots of seafood and rice, to anything and everything you could possibly wish for. Some more traditional bars will often give you a small amount of tapas for free with a caña ( beer). Benalmadena Costa is home to chiringuitos (seafood restaurants on the beach) where you can watch the fishing boats, which have often caught what you are eating.




Golf




Benalmadena has a number of golf courses, putting greens and driving ranges. Benalmadena Golf is home to a driving range, putting green and a straight forward 9 hole par three. It has an excellent clubhouse with restaurant. The nearest 18 hole course is Torrequebrada Golf, which offers a challenge to all levels of players. The pine trees that surround it gives it seclusion and some of the views are spectacular. Browse our villas in Torrequebrada for the best golf experience on the Costa del Sol.

Benalmádena review

Puerto Marina is lovely - we preferred it to Puerto Banus! Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from and great for all ages. Kids fancies one of the dolphin trips but we didn't quite make it - next time!


Costa del Sol reviews

Great sandy beach which was just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. Easily accessible from Malaga airport.
