Benalmádena on the Costa del Sol , Spain is situated some 20 kilometres from Malaga’s International Airport, and is linked to Malaga via the motorway, train and bus service.
The municipality is divided into three distinct parts, Benalmadena Pueblo, Benalmadena Costa and Arroyo de la Miel.
The original heart of Benalmadena remains as a typical Andaluz village in the foothills of the mountains which sweep down to the shore. It covers an area of 26,58 sq. km. and has an average height of 280 metres above sea level.
The narrow, flower-filled streets hold plenty of traces of the former civilisations which used to exist in the area. This picturesque village and its coastline are eminently suitable for tourism, with a population of over 60,000 people at the height of the season.
Benalmadena Costa is the coastal strip of the municipality enjoying a 9 kilometre stretch of attractive beaches and all the sporting and leisure possibilities of a busy resort town. You can stroll down one of the most attractive promenades in Europe and enjoy the relaxing blend of sea and sand as you're drawn in to seafront restaurants and shops. You'll soon come across the Castillo de Bil Bil, an neo-Arab construction built in 1934. As well as a visitor attraction and wonderful viewing platform out over the Med, it's used by the Town Hall as an exhibition centre and a venue for various concerts and cultural events.
Arroyo de la Miel, situated between the old town and the coast. It has a lively commercial and business buzz, and is also a pleasant residential area of 17000 inhabitants. The three watchtowers which feature on Benalmadena's crest make an attractive visit as you walk around Benalmadena Costa.
Over the past twenty years Benalmádena has become one of the key tourism centres on the Costa del Sol, Spain tripling its off-season population of 30,000 inhabitants in the summer period.
The marina, in Benalmádena Costa, can take up to almost 1,000 boats of up to six metres long, and almost all types of water sports are practiced here, including hang-gliding and underwater snorkelling.
The cable cars (telecabinas) link Arroyo de la Miel with the peak of the Carramolo mountain, and from here, on a clear day, one can see right across to Africa.
