Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Great location, great view, great apartment!
This sunny, bright apartment overlooks beautifully maintained gardens and large swimming pool. The apartment is west facing so it receives the sun from midday to sunset. The enclosed balcony is the perfect place for unwinding after a long day in the sun, watching the sunset in comfort before getting ready to go out for the evening.
The apartment is ideally suited to two people although it will accommodate four.
This perfectly positioned one bedroom apartment has restaurants, bars and shops on its doorstep and is only a 5 minute walk to beautiful Benalmadena beach. If you fancy a leisurely stroll the scenic Puerto Marina is right next to the beach or Arroyo town centre is only a 15 minute walk away with it's outdoor restaurants and cafe's great for people watching. Why not try the Friday market, you might find a bargain.
Paloma park or Tivoli World Theme Park are also close by and great places to take the kids for a day out. Or if you'd like to try something different you can get a cable car from Tivoli World in Arroyo up to the Mountains for spectacular views and you can even watch a falconry display while you are there.

The Costa del Sol region
Costa del Sol is known for it's year round climate and it's amazing choice of golf courses.The excellent local bus services provide regular and easy access along the coast and up to the white-washed villages of Benalmadena Pueblo and Mijas. Arroyo de la Miel is a small town within the Benalmadena Costa area providing excellent access to many tourist activities.
The local train service (Crecanias) provides access along the coast. From Arroyo you can go in one direction to Fuengirola (approxx 20min) and in the other direction to Torremolinos, the airport and finaly to Malaga (approx 30 min).
From Malaga the mainline train (RENFE) services all the major cities and the new AVE high speed service has reduced the journey time to Madrid to 2.5 hours.
Malaga is a fantastic city that shouldn't be overlooked and Granada is only a 1.5 hour bus trip from Malaga
Benalmadena is split into three areas the first being Benalmadena Pueblo the old Spanish style village, Arroyo de la Miel the busy town area where you will find the train station and Benalmadena Costa, the beach area.
Benalmadena Pueblo has a quiet pace of life with white washed Spanish houses and a lovely square which is an ideal place to stop and have lunch. The church is worth a visit and outside has stunning views down to the coast. The local bull ring is here too.
Arroyo De la Miel is a much busier area with shops and restaurants. Tivoli World Amusement Park is in Arroyo and this is where they hold the local Friday market. The cable car (teleferico), which is visible from the apartment, runs from here, ascending to the summit of the 769-metre Calamorro mountain with its panoramic views of the Costa, Sierra Nevada mountains, and on clear days, the African coastline. At the summit you will also be rewarded with a falconry display.
Benalmadena Costa is the coastal area where you will find the world famous Puerto Marina. boasting the beautiful, award-winning marina, offering all types of water sports, pleasure trips, dolphin and whale watching safaris and fishing. It is also one of the premier night-life centres in the region and has many restaurants, discos and shopping centres. Other attractions include the SeaLife Centre and Selwo Marina theme park, home to dolphins, penguins, seals and other marine mammals species.
A lovely walk along the promenade takes you from the Marina to the exotic Moorish style Castle Bil-Bil in one direction, and all the way to Torremolinos in the other along the Carihuela with its famous 'chiringuitos' (fresh fish restaurants).
Down from Arroyo and just before the beachfront is Paloma Park - a haven for wildlife with animals and birds roaming free and living in harmony side by side - chickens, cocks, peacocks, ducks, geese, cats, rabbits and even the odd guinea pig. A lovely place for a gentle afternoon stroll around the lake and cactus garden followed by a drink and nibble at one of 3 cafes within the park. Very popular with families with its abundance of grass space for picnics and children's play areas and adventure playgrounds
The people who visit Benalmadena return year after year as the area has so much to offer. Notable dates are the following:
San Juan, 23rd June.
Virgen del Carmen 16th July
