About the neighbourhood
BENALMADENA is one of the Costa del Sol´s most vibrant and attractive resorts. Lying in the foothills of Sierra de Mijas, Benalmadena enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and constantly mild temperatures due to the influence of the Mediterranean Sea. Malaga Airport is a 15 minutes drive away (20 minutes by lightweight train) provides air links to the whole of Europes. Destinations of Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Puerto Banus, Marbella and Gibraltar are easily reached by coast road or motorway. Bus transport to all these locations is reliable and at a low price. There are dozens of excellent golf courses in the area, with the world famous Torrequebrada course only ten minute ride from the apartment. Ease of access to great shopping, beaches, golf and other attractions, coupled with its enviable climate make Benalmadena a premier Holiday attraction. Benalmadena still retains the Spanish traditional feel which has not been lost to Tourism. Architecture is Andalucían with white washed walls and terracotta tile roofs. The resort is divided into four main areas - The Benalmadena pueblo with its narrow streets and traditional Spanish houses up in the mountain. Closer to the coast is the Arroyo De La Miel (Stream of honey) which is a small modern town with numerous shops, restaurants and bars. About 20 mins walk from the apartment (or 1.55 Euros bus ride) is Tivoli World which is one of the best theme and entertainment parks on the coast. Here a cable car travels up to the mountain peak of Mount Calmoro with its breathtaking panoramic views of the coast, Africa and on a clear day, Gibraltar. Torrequebrada: With its famous golf course Benalmadena Costa (where the apartment is located) boasts a beautiful beach stretching for over 8 kilometers. PUERTO MARINA recognized as one of the best marinas in the world (voted the best in the world twice already) with over 1000 moorings and 200 shops, bars and restaurants as well as a Diving School and renowned Sea Life Centre. Nearby is a Cinema, discos, Tapas Restaurants and bars popular with young and old alike. PALOMA PARK is less than 5 minutes walk away from the apartment, this is a Beautiful public garden, with lakes, fountains, pelicans, ostriches, terrapins and other wildlife. It has various bars and cafes, as well as play areas for children. It also boasts the famous SELWO dolphin & seal exhibition shows, plus an exotic wild bird show. Throughout the year there are a large number of festivals and events of Art, Music, and Dance. We belive that Benalmadena has everything for everyone. For the sporting energetic type there is golf, sailing, fishing, waterskiing, scuba diving, parascending, hang gliding or just laze on our tropical sandy beaches. Even our winters are attractive for the longer stay holidaymaker at even better value. And if you Ski, we are close to the Sierra Nevada, so you can switch from sun to snow in 2 hours. There are also two Aqua parks (Torremollinos & Mijas) nearby. If all those local attractions are not enough for you and you have the energy to venture out more, there are cheap coach excursions to just about anywhere like, Granada, Ronda, Marbella, Seville, Gibraltar and our picturesque Lakes.
Getting around
Although all amenities (shopping, beach, Marina, Parks, restaurants and bars) are a short walk away. There are 5 or 6 different bus route stops within 5 minutes’ walk and at least 10 more within 10 minutes. The light railway station is less than 10 minutes’ walk, it stops at all main points along the coast between Malaga and Fuengirola.
How to get there
The taxi fair should not exceed €25. However many visitors and locals alike choose to use the light railway. You can get from the airport to El Arroyo de la Miel (Benalmadena) station in 20 minutes for about €2. And you can either walk 10 minutes downhill to the apartment or perhaps more practical with full suitcases, get a taxi right at the station for about €6.
