The Costa del Sol region
The Costa Del Sol is the premier resort of Spain. The region boasts of holidays to suit everyone's taste. You can relax and enjoy fabulous restaurants, bars and of course the weather!.
The Costa del Sol’s resort of Benalmadena with its miles of beautiful fine sand beaches and splendid weather, have kept tourists coming back year after year.
The Costa del Sol caters to young and old, locals and tourists alike, offering an exciting selection of entertainment and relaxation options.
From Benalmadena you could take a drive around the coast from Málaga to Marbella which is now one of the most cosmopolitan places of the Costa del Sol, with the most famous marina of the Mediterranean, Puerto Banus, where have anchored the most outstanding and legendary yachts. The centre of the jet-set, holiday residence or playground of princes, millionaires or members of the show business, is nowadays a spotless city with beautiful boulevards, parks and gardens and a historic centre with Moorish and Andalusian flavor.
You could also travel to Gibraltar, which is a duty-free shopper’s heaven and still continues to offer duty free goods despite changes elsewhere in Europe. Prices at the airport, notably for tobacco and spirits, are among the least expensive in the world.
Benalmadena port is only a 8 Euro cab ride away. There you will find a beautiful beach, bars, fabulous restaurants and designer shops. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
There are numerous golf courses, an amusement park, two aquariums, a casino, a cable car and one of the largest marinas in Andalusia.
The outstanding Puerto Marina in Benalmadena is one point of attraction for all kinds of visitors during the day and during the night, with many shops, cafes and restaurants, bars and night clubs. The nightlife around this area is very animated and lasts until the early morning hours.
For anyone who wants to dance the night away there are huge clubs, trendy quayside bars, a casino, international cabaret and flamenco shows - all this and much, much more makes Benalmadena Nightlife one of the Costa del Sol's favourite nightlife spots.
Paloma Park is my favourite piece of Benalmadena and Arroyo de la Miel. With landscaped gardens, a large lake with gigantic water flume and wildlife including fowls, peacocks and friendly rabbits running freely, it's like an oasis in the center of the busy resort. There are two small playparks for the children and three cafes where you can stop for a cool drink. There is also a cactus garden with many species from around the world. At the top of the park is the public library with more water features. Also in this are is the feria ground where a car boot sale is held on Wednesday mornings.
Nearby is Europes largest butterfly park, Mariposario de Benalmadena, containing over 150 different species from all over the world.
The cable car or Teleferico ride from Arroyo de la Miel to the top of Monte Calamorro is another popular attraction. The ten minute journey provides fantastic panoramic views over the area, and on a clear day you may even get a glimpse of the north African coast.
You may well have visited a Sealife Centre in Britain. This is a British company which has developed such sites all over the UK and Europe. The one in Benalmadena is situated right in the port area. Children love it. All Sea Life Centres are different and reflect the area in which they are situated. At this centre is an exhibit of sea life to be found in the Mediterranean. There is a walk-through Lost City of Atlantis where the sea and its creatures are all around, even above you. There are sharks, a tank of stingrays, pirahnas and a seahorse exhibit. Expect to spend quite a bit of time here. It is both entertaining and instructive, and opportunities to actually touch or feed some of the fish. Most of the centre is indoors so it is a suitable place to visit should the weather be bad, but there is also an outside area with a mini golf course and cafeteria. There are over 30 displays and what is claimed to be the largest collection of sharks in Europe.
Tivoli World is an amusement park is situated in Arroya de la Miel. The main areas are Andalucia with live Spanish music and dance, Western Square with live country music and dance and Tivolilandia with children's rides. The entrance fee includes all entertainment, but Tivolino, the parks own currency, has to be purchased to use the rides which are scattered throughout the park. There is also a 3500 seat theatre which features a variety of events throughout the year. There is a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars. If you do not have your own transport there are regular bus services and it is not too far from the Arroya de la Miel train station. There are also taxis. The regular Friday market is held in the Tivoli car park roughly between 9am and 1pm.
