Benalmádena

 

 

Benalmádena is a town and municipality situated approximately 15 km west of the city of Málaga, between Torremolinos and Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol. The municipality is divided intro three different areas: Benalmádena Pueblo, Benalmádena Costa and Arroyo de la Miel, packed with many interesting attractions for everyone in the family.

Benalmádena Pueblo, is the original village on the side of the mountain, about three kilometres inland. It is still an attractive old Spanish village with the typical whitewashed houses on cobbled streets. A refreshing escape from the newer developments on the coast. The town also has an archaeological museum with a great collection of Neolithic and pre-Columbian artifacts from around Andalusia.

Benalmádena Costa, the part of most interest to the many tourists who visit this popular Costa del Sol resort every year. This is a purpose-built coastal resort extending 8 km along the coast which climbs steeply up into mountains behind. Here there is discos, hotels, beaches, shopping centres and an extensively-equipped marina. The marina is the focal point for Benalmádena's social scene and is central to the resort. Tourist attractions include SeaLife aquarium and Selwo Marina, a theme park with dolphins, penguins and seals among other species.

Arroyo de la Miel, originally a separate village, is in the interior between the other two areas. It has become the main residential area, and is also the most commercially active. Arroyo has grown rapidly, due greatly to the excellent train service running between Fuengirola and Málaga, as well as good road connection. It also has several attractions such as the Tivoli World amusement park, and a teleferico (cable car) running to the summit of the 769-metre Calamorro mountain, which provides panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar and the Moroccan coastline.
