Benahavis

Benahavis holidays

A whitewashed wonder fit for a fairytale, Benahavis doesn’t do charm by halves. 7km from the coast along western Costa del Sol, this pretty resort boasts a subtropical climate and a classic Spanish, cosy-looking layout. There’s a fascinating old church, 16th-century palace and castle to check out, too.

Famed for food

If you’re a foodie, Benahavis has your name on it. Brimming with fine-dining restaurants, you’ll feel every bit the VIP when you eat out in this vibrant little village. In fact, it’s so famous for its food, some even refer to it as the dining room of the Costa del Sol!

Great greens

Around 70 golf clubs are sprinkled around the Costa del Sol, so there are plenty of options for putting pros. Benahavis has about ten of these courses locally, making it easy to find 18 holes of golfing glory nearby. Hit the driving ranges or head straight to tee off.
