There are plenty of popular places to go to when you want to have a relaxed summer holiday at the Costa del Sol. Yet, you could also choose to go to the less well-known , but at least as beautiful Benalmádena. Enjoying you holidays here means a lot of sunbathing, jumping in the sea, relaxing at the beach, taking long boulevard walks, having tapas dinner in the port, and a getting a taste of the local culture.
Benalmádena is a nice beach town between Torremolinos y Fuengirola. Although slightly bigger than these two, Benalmádena is not as well-known. But that´s totally okay, because that means you can enjoy a relaxed holiday without a problem! You are almost always accompanied by the sun, as Benalmádena has a Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers.
Sun, sea and the beach are the main ingredients of a holiday in Benalmádena. This town has a 10 km long beach that is perfect for a day of relaxing, building sand castles, or practicing water sports like surfing, beach volleyball, or jet skiing. Everything is possible!
And that´s not all, because you can also go shopping in the city center. The more luxurious shops can be found in the port, while local shops are everywhere in the Arroya de la Miel district, or at Avenida Antonio Machado.
So, what could you do when you do not want to spend the day at the beach in Benalmádena? For exampe, you could ride the gondola that reaches the highest point of the area, Cerro del Moro. The view is breathtaking… Besides that, the Arabic Castillo del Bil-Bil and Benalmádena Pueblo are very interesting to visit as well. Benalmádena Pueblo, known for its narrow little streets, is the original village further inland.
This beach town is part of the Costa del Sol in Andalusia. This Spanish area is known for its beautiful villages and cities, as well at the coast as further inland: visiting these spots is a must when you stay in Benalmádena!
One of the best-known places is Málaga, which is at more or less a half an hour by car. This Spanish city is practically a huge collection of shops, tapas restaurants, and historical buildings. Visit one of the spectacular cathedrals (like Santa Iglesia Catedral Basilica) or palaces, get to know the bullfighting arena, or visit the various different musea to get to know more about the Spanish culture. Yet, the most beautiful part of town is, without a doubt, the fort called Alcazaba.
