The Costa del Sol region
Long a favourite destination, the Costa del Sol offers clean beaches and unbeatable sunshine. Torremolinos attracts a younger crowd, with sweeping beaches, shopping centres and thriving discos. Fuengirola is more family-friendly. There are plenty of water sports on offer, and pedal-boats for the family to enjoy.
Things to do in Benalmadena: Stroll around the Marina , or take the small train for a guided tour (aprox. 20 minutes) . The architectural style of the buildings is fantastic; reflecting the heritage of the area . Various boat trips are available to Fuengirola , Malaga or even dolphin spotting . Dream your way past the boats moored alongside the path or visit the shops , bars , disco's & restaurants . Plenty to choose from whatever the time of day .
Take the circular or Mijas Pueblo bus & get off for an hour or two in the Pueblo . Walk along from the bus stop & follow the signs for the Colomares Castle . Take a taxi from the Pueblo if you don't like to walk too far . Visit the spectacular monument erected to honour Christopher Columbus . The Archeological Museum in the Pueblo houses a collection of mainly South American artefacts pre dating the discovery of America . Take the lift up to the local church & the small walled gardens which surround it
Family Attractions: TIVOLI WORLD theme park is located in Arroyo de la Miel . The park is designed for adults as well as children and has wonderful gardens, fountains and walkways. This park is one of the oldest established on the coast. The park is set in beautiful gardens with illuminated fountains and several squares where you can stop and watch one of the many free shows. For example, in the Western Square there is a reproduction of a Wild West Town with French Can-Can shows and Country & Western music and the Plaza de Andalucia gives you an insight into the regional culture and folklore with its Flamenco and Spanish ballet show.
Tivoli World has its own currency (Tivolino) which you use to buy rides and entrance to other amusements, so you need to change up the money you think you'll use. Alternatively, you can buy the Supertivolino, a ticket which gives you unlimited access to the 35 or so rides and attractions, some of which are subject to age restrictions.
There is also an open-air theatre, which puts on shows during the summer. On Sundays there is the Rastro market and the Bric-a-Brac Garden Market (open 11am - 3pm, except July and August). In addition, there is a large selection of restaurants and cafés to keep you fed and watered for the whole afternoon and evening.
AQUA LAND Torremolinos - Aqualand is located only 10 minutes from the centre of Torremolinos. Aqualand is a place where you can spend a day having lots of fun with the best aquatic attractions one can ever imagine. Also, this year the park offers a new attraction: the “Boomerang”, plus relaxing green areas and 18-hole mini golf course.
Aqualand Torremolinos is the only place on the Costa del Sol where you can find the water park attraction which is taking the world by storm. BOOMERANG is a most daring ride, there and back, on a floater … a ride you can enjoy with anyone. If you try it, you’ll understand why everyone wants to repeat. Don’t lose out. Try it this summer!
SELWO AVENTURA PARK is a nature park unique in Europe where animals of the five continents coexist in semi wild conditions. The park is divided into several zones, each of which features a variety of different animals. The first remarkable area which you will encounter is the lagoon which is populated by exotic birds, including some colourful flamingos. Nearby are habitats suitable for birds and monkeys. One of the park's most striking man-made features is the bird canyon, a massive enclosed area of hills and plants, within which more than 40 different species of birds live freely. A great part of the circuit is made in all-terrain trucks, although there is lots to see on foot, so wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Also there is limited shade so summer visitors should remember to bring along a hat and sun cream. ( Website in Spanish only )
SELWO MARINE PARK One of Spain's newest themed attractions is devoted to the exotic creatures of South America. Selwo Marina in Benalmádena, Malaga, Spain, is billed as new concept of marine park, bringing together the sea life and birds of South America and complementing the theme of the successful Selwo Adventure wildlife park in Estepona, Spain. Visitors to Selwo Marina participate in an expedition in which they discover the amazing ecosystems of the South American continent. The park is accessed through the Plaza of the Americas where shops and food services are available. Through the plaza, visitors enter the Caribbean zone known as the Antilles, home to the Dolphinarium, an installation designed to exhibit, maintain, and breed species of dolphins and sea lions. Next up is the Papagayo Club, where visitors can watch a variety of birds in flight and bird exhibitions.
Benalmadena's SEA LIFE CENTRE takes you on a fascinating voyage of discovery. From Shrimps and Starfish to Stingrays and Sharks you will be able to enjoy incredibly close encounters with a wealth of Mediterranean marine life. View from above, alongside and even from it in as more than 30 displays bring you incredibly close to the wonders of the marine world. We recognise the vital role that the sea plays in our lives and are determined to respect it. We nurse sick and injured creatures and return them fit and healthy to the sea. Danger In The Reefs: The new exhibition features a host of amazing marine creatures from around the world all of which are capable or causing severe pain and sometimes even death to humans. It is the first interactive underwater park in Costa del Sol that allows you to walk across the bottom of the sea and gaze at almost three hundred thousand aquatic species from the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Red Sea. There are more than thirty tanks of different dimensions that accurately recreate the natural surroundings of the sea life that inhabits them. e Ocean area contains different types of sharks, moray eels, turtles and other endemic species. The Tropical area is filled with surprising colours and unexpected creatures such as, balloon fish, butterfly fish, stone fish, surgeon fish, sea horses, etc. ( Website - Some English - Mainly Spanish

Just returned from a weeks stay at this apartment from Boxing Day and over the new year. The apartment was in an ideal location close to supermarkets and good bars with reasonably priced drinks and meals. We had a short walk to the marina and enjoyed walking into torremelinos. The apartment is located not too far from bus stops and we enjoyed a day trip into Malaga
So glad you enjoyed your stay.

First time in Costa Del Sol, location could not have been better, bus service directly outside complex, train station just a ten minute walk, so no problems getting to where ever you wanted to go, ap… More
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I apologise for there not being a sun lounger on the balcony at the time of your stay, the reason being it was damaged and not replaced before you arrived. The loungers break very easy even though we don`t buy cheap ones, it is due to them being permanently in the direct sunlight and the plastic gets brittle. I hope you choose to stay in one of our 3 apartments if you do visit Benalmadena in the future.

"Great apartment. Great pool."
Short €20-€25 taxi ride from airport.
Great apartment. Clean, bright + good size. Lovely corner balcony.
Brilliant pool + garden area. Slides not open, but not a problem for us, as our 5yr old was more than happy with the pool.
Supermarket across the street. Bonanza square also across the road offering a variety of bars + restaurants. Most evenings however we strolled downhill to the promenade and ate there.
We enjoyed a wonderful sun/fun filled family holiday.
Thank you for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay,

We arrived outside the apartments and my heart sank; it looked liked the entrance to a 1960's lido (outside swimming complex). The apartment would have been ok; however, we were under the impres… More
I am sorry the resort was not what you expected and I apologise for not informing you of the bed situation as it was only temporary and to be honest I forgot.It is stated in the advert that the pool is closed in low season and this is beyond our control also the mini oven and 2 ring hob is stated but these are there for the longer staying guests as short stay holiday makers find it is just as cheap to dine out. As for the bars, there are many ex-pats running the bars and restaurants INCLUDING El Naraja, but there are more Spanish run bars which unfortunately you obviously didn`t get to visit. Lastly I can only apologise that the weather was not as good as it should be but again this is something out of my hands.

"Lovely apartment,brilliant view,spotlessly clean like home from home."
This apartment is the best one we've stopped in, having been a regular visitor to this part of Benalmadena for the last ten years.
Ideally located close to all amenities,bars shops etc.,10 minutes from the beautiful promenade and beach.
Very nicely set out,spotlessly clean and a lovely view of the pool area.
Everything you could wish for is supplied in the apartment from washing machine to English T.V.
Thank you for your review, I am glad you were happy with the apartment, we try our best to keep our standards high.
