Just along the coast from Fuengirola and easily reached by public transport (train, bus or taxi) you will find the town of Benalmádena. Over the last fifty years, this resort has evolved from a small, sleepy fishing village, to become a favourite destination for thousands of sun seeking holiday makers from northern Europe.
With its great transport links by bus and train, it is so easy to visit other resorts and places of interest along the Costa del Sol and throughout Andalucía. Being just twelve miles from Málaga International airport, transfer to the resort by train or taxi takes less than twenty minutes.
The resort itself has many attractions for visitors. These include the fantastic Puerto Marina, which houses many shops and restaurants and has been voted best marina in the world on three occasions. The marina itself offers over a thousand berths for boats and yachts. The landscaped Paloma park, with it’s large lake and water flume is everyone’s favourite. Peacocks, rabbits and other wildlife roam free, and children have two play parks to enjoy. The Costa del Sol’s only ice-rink is situated in Avenida Garcia Lorca.
In Arroyo de la Miel, which is the resort’s commercial centre, you will find the compact Tivoli World amusement park as well as the cable car or teleférico, which transports you to the summit of Monte Calamorro 800 meters above sea-level. The ten minute journey gives fantastic views over the resort and as far as the north African coast on a clear day. The resort’s railway station is also in Arroyo de la Miel, and the half hourly service links Málaga, Málaga airport, Torremolinos and Fuengirola.
Last but not least, there is Benalmádena Pueblo which contains the municipal town hall. This is a beautiful Spanish “pueblo blanco ” (white village) high up in the hills and overlooking the coast. Flowers adorn the balconies of many houses. Just outside the village is the Benalmádena Stupa, a large Buddhist monument, and also Colomares Castle. All in all, Benalmádena has all the ingredients for a fantastic holiday, and with three hundred sunny days each year it is unlikely that rain will spoil your stay here.
