The Andalucia region
In the heart of the Costa del Sol, Benalmadena is located approximately 20 km west of Malaga. With an average summer temperature of 27°C and 3,200 hours of sun each year it ranks among the warmest areas of Europe and year by year attracts ever more holiday-makers to Andalusia.
Your gateway to the sun is Malaga International Airport. Only two-and-a-half hours away from Britain.
The townhouse is fifteen minutes from the airport by taxo or 20 minutes by train, and you are in Benalmadena where we will gladly welcome you as our guests.
Arroyo De La Miel
Benalmadena Marina – was awarded in 1995 the title of the World's Most Beautiful Marina. With more than 1,000 berths it is the largest marina in the region and is surrounded by innumerable cafés, restaurants, discotheques, souvenir shops and day and night entertainment.
From the port you are able to makes trips up the coast to see dolphins in their natural habitat or if you prefer to stay on dry land, to visit Sealife, an underwater aquarium, in which you can admire the tremendous diversity of under-water life in the Mediterranean.
On either side of the port the sandy beach extends for miles with its beautiful promenade, cosy cafes and inviting restaurants. There is also a water sports centre from where you can try out paragliding, jet skiing, diving, fishing and other pursuits.
El Castillo Bil Bil, which dates from 1934 is a cultural centre, in which exhibitions and concerts take place, as well as being a popular place to get married!
There is a casino, golf courses and shopping centres to add more variety to your holiday. There is one golf course in immediate proximity to our apartments, seven others nearby, and within a short drive innumerable others – it's not in vain that the Costa del Sol is also known as the "Costa del Golf".
For something more relaxing we recommend the "Parque de la Paloma", the Park of the Dove which extends to 200.000m² of gardens, among the largest in the region. With its children's playgrounds it is an absolute must for visitors.
The leisure and entertainment park TIVOLI WORLD in Arroyo de la Miel opened in 1973 and offers a wide range of activities to make your holidays an unforgettable experience.
On Friday mornings between 10.00 and 14.00 o'clock the market in Arroyo de la Miel is a place where you will find that special souvenir to display at home.
Another unforgettable experience is to take the „telecabina“, the cable car, up from the town to the 971m high mountain Calamorro, from where there is a fantastic view of the entire coast and, on a clear day, right across the sea to Africa.
If that is not enough to entertain you then make your way to the city of Málaga with its cathedral, Alcazaba, the Gibralfaro mountain fortress and its free open air concerts.
The mountain village of Mijas also enjoys a tremendous view over the entire coast. It has a bull ring and museum, a chapel cut into the mountain, gardens and it's famous donkeys, on whose backs one can explore the village.
For horse lovers there is a Spanish riding school with demonstrations, and riding instruction, also trips out from the stables are available.
The new „Selwo“ Safaripark has more than 2.000 wild animals, of 200 different animal species, from all continents of the world in over one million square metres of nature reserve which can be viewed by bus, or on foot.
A new Dolphinarium has been recently opened at the Selwo Marina. With 1.67 hectares of water and a wide range of sea creatures, seals and dolphins and, uniquely on the Spanish peninsula, emperor penguins.
For day-trips out from Benalmadena you have the option to go with organized travel companies or to rent a vehicle. Either way, there are many interesting destinations:
The British Colony of Gibraltar with its innumerable underground tunnels and caves, Barbary Apes and shop-ping streets.
Like-wise a trip to Ronda, the „white queen“, one of the oldest cities of Spain, never disappoints the visitor. The main points of attraction are the oldest bullring in Spain, and the deep ravine with its spectacular bridge which interconnects the city.
We hope that this short description of what Benalmadena and the surrounding areas has to offer has captivated you and that very soon we will be able to welcome you to join us on the Costa del Sol.
Tivoli World is on your doorstep.
Telecabina is just around the corner. The Friday markets are nearby.

"Home from home for the 6 of us"
With 2 adults and six children it's difficult to have a "normal" package holiday so opted for the DIY version. This townhouse caters for six comfortably but any more would mean the sofa.
Glad we booked it YES, would we go back NO
Postives - Great pool for the kids (aged 13,11,8,6), literally out the back door and everything you need and more is in the house including, all the little things like bottle openers, cooking oil, salt and pepper etc. You really can it's home from home. Also really close to the train station so you getting from Malaga airport is a doddle even without a car. Close to bars and restaraunts but not noisy.
Negatives - If it's 500m to the beach then the European definition of a metre is a lot more than mine! It's a good 20 minute walk all uphill, which 6 year olds moan about all the way.
Electricity is not included which is not stated in the advert which you need for the aircon mainly.

"Everything was just fine"
We were 3 families (6 adults, 3 children between 6 and 10) and all of us loved this holiday.
We are not very picky though, so YMMV.
The house is not located in a great spot with a great view, it's just in Benalmadena in a quiet neighbourhood with little or no cars traffic nearby.
You'll walk 15 minutes to the nearest beach, should you choose to do that, but I suggest renting a car. There are not too many free parking spots in Benalmadena or in Torremolinos, so choose the biggest car which accommodates everybody in your group. We rented a nine-seater and occasionally we drove in circles looking for a free spot to park.
Word of advice: the local police will be more than happy to tow your car, should you park it improperly.
You'll also need the car for shopping. There is a nearby Carrefour Market (http://goo.gl/XacIq) but you will not want to walk 1 kilometer back home with the groceries.
The house had all the necessary facilities for us, short for a coffee maker and wireless internet. It's true those things were not advertised either.
9 days proved to be too short for visiting everything we wanted, so we had to skip a few and settle for Malaga, Gibraltar, Cordoba (great place to visit), Granada-Alhambra (buy tickets well in advance!) and parts of Benalmadena and Torremolinos.
We spent some time on quite a few beaches in Benalmadena, Torremolinos and Fuengirola, some of which are great, some less, but you'll find one for your taste.
I suppose it's redundant and unnecessary information, but the kids loved the sea and loved the pool. The later proved to be bigger than shown in the pictures and the most important asset according to our children.
All in all, should I have the time to re-visit Costa del Sol I would not hesitate to choose again this townhouse.
