The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol, now appropriately renamed Costa del Golf after it's well over 40 beautifully situated golfcourses is one of Europe's most famous playgrounds. The Mediterranean Sea in front, the Andalucian landscape around, the warm sunshine over 320 days a year and average temperatures over 20°C, the impressive cultural heritage of cities and towns like Gránada, Sevilla, Córdoba, Ronda and Antequera within a few hours' drive, and the wintersports resort of the Sierra Nevada at just 125 kms distance truly make it a ´year round resort´ area.

The marina is also home to The Sea Life Centre, home to all manners of marine wild life, and has its own petting tank where you can get personal with the Rays.You can take a stroll around to look at the luxury yachts and when the sun goes down the Puerto Marina becomes one of the coasts best party destinations.
Parque La Paloma is a gorgeous location in the center of Benalmádena-Costa. There is a stunning array of flora and fauna, plus a menagerie of animals including hens, rabbits, goats and exotic birds. The park is beautifully landscaped with themed gardens and rocky waterfalls, which run down to the lake. There are two bars within the park where you can relax into the evening listening to the calls of peacocks.
Beside La Paloma park you will find Selwo Marina, the sister to Selwo Adventure Park, further down the coast. Modeled around different locations in South America, you can view close up dolphins, sea lions, crocodiles, exotic birds and snakes. Recently a penguin habitation has been installed giving a glimpse of the Antarctic in Andalucia.
Arroyo de la Miel translates to 'Honey Stream' is a former sleepy village, which now links Benalmádena-Pueblo to its Costa. Being at the centre of things it has grown into a fantastic area for getting a bite to eat and shopping to your hearts content. The train station is found in Arroyo, which links the town all along the coast from Málaga to Fuengirola.
Cable cars serve as a route to the top of the mountain that pins Benalmádena to the beaches where you can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view inland and out to sea where North Africa is visible on clear days. You can also take in equestrian and raptor shows at the summit.

The heart of the village has a traditional Spanish appearance with white-washed stone buildings and labyrinth alleys, however the village now has a much more cosmopolitan feel.
