A Spanish story
There are a few different sides to Benalmadena, making it a big draw for sightseers and sun-seekers alike. Head to the coast to take your pick from dozens of sandy beaches, or get a feel for traditional Andalusian life by the white-fronted houses, cobbled streets and hidden-away squares.
Theme parks and cable cars
Nestled between the old town and the beaches is the Arroyo de la Miel area. It’s the soul of Benalmadena, with various shops and restaurants, as well as Tivoli World theme park. Nearby is a cable car to the Calamorro Mountain summit, about 800m above the beaches.
Majestic Málaga and more
Spend a day wandering the beautiful city of Málaga, complete with narrow streets of upmarket boutiques and laid-back bars. Take in the culture at the Picasso Museum, or explore the grand cathedral and astonishing Alcazaba fortress, before a stroll among the exotic plants at the botanical garden.
