Holidays to Benalmadena

As clichéd as it is to say, there really is something for everyone in Benalmadena.

There are a dozen beaches to choose from, from secluded spots to family-friendly stretches with watersports. But if the beach isn’t your thing, there’s history, theme parks and days out. The Andalusian old-town is bursting with old Spanish charm, including cobbled side streets and whitewashed houses. The nearby Tivoli World is home to 40 rides and attractions that are suitable for all ages. And there’s a cable car that takes you to the top of Calamorro Mountain. Malaga is also only a 25-minute drive away.

With its privileged position looking out onto the Mediterranean Sea it is little wonder that the city has grown so rapidly over the last 20 years. Boasting a comfortable climate and light sea breezes, Benalmadena is a very popular tourist destination.

Benalmadena is home to Tivoli World Park, the largest theme park on the Costa, Bil-Bil Castle and Puerto Marina. What better way to plan your stay and discover all the things to do and see than from the top of an open-top double-decker bus? With its 360 degree panoramic views and a tour which highlights all the main attractions, you can hop on and off at your leisure at the 12 conveniently located stops around the city.

Hop off at Tivoli-Teleferico and take a cable car to Mount Carramolo from the entrance of Tivoli World. You might prefer to keep your feet on the ground and soak up the sun on the beautiful Malapesquera Beach. Hop off at The Parque De La Paloma, an oasis in the bustling, lively town. It is a fabulous park, with lots of things to do and see. Younger visitors will be entertained in the play areas on offer and be amazed by the variety of animals and birds wandering freely around. The park also boasts numerous idyllic picnic spots around the lake, many ponds and meandering pathways. Visit Bil-Bil Castle, a Neo-Arab style building that was built on behalf of Leon and Fernanda Hermann and finished in 1934. The castle is home to leafy gardens with fountains and a stunning view of the beaches. It is now used as a cultural centre with art exhibitions, conferences and concerts.

Visitors who appreciate art may enjoy a trip to the Centro de Exposiciones which offers the opportunity to view many pieces in this magnificent space. Hop off at Playa Arroyo De La Miel, which means “stream of honey” and used to be the main source of income. It is now the primary commercial area and is bursting with small shops, restaurants and cabaret bars. Visit Puerto Marina which is home to a Sea Life Aquarium and an array of delightful boutiques and restaurants. It is also a beautiful region to wander around during warm evenings and enjoy a drink in one of the numerous bars with a stunning view of the marina's many boats and vessels.
