Benalmádena

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

The little white mountain village of Casares lies just under 9 miles from the coast and simply oozes charm, having miraculously managed to avoid any hint of modernity. It has been declared a place of historic and artistic interest. Wander through the maze of white, flower-decked façades as you climb to the top of the village to admire the breathtaking views of the ruins of the fortress where you will find an adorable little cemetery.

To see

With its many bars (including an ice bar), trendy restaurants, shops, shopping centres, arcades and nightclubs, the very kitsch Benalmadena Marina is a great place to visit. There is also a butterfly park, an archaeological museum and an aquarium. Bil Bil Castle, which houses a small museum of Islamic art. The Playa de Arroyo de la Miel beach. A few miles inland you can visit the old village of Benalmadena, from which the coast took its name.

To do

An exciting visit to Tivoli World amusement park. Spend some money at the Casino Torrequebrada. Take a ride in the cable car and admire the beautiful views of the marina and the coast. One hour boat trips between the ports of Benalmadena and Fuengirola give you the chance to admire the Costa del Sol and see whales and dolphins. In the region, you can of course play golf and take part in many water sports (sailing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, canoeing, diving and big game fishing, among others), A walk in Paloma Park.
