Malaga airport to Benalmadena
The town of Benalmadena is split into three sections: Benalmadena Costa, Benalmadena Pueblo and Arroyo de la Miel. However, the part of most touristic interest is Benalmadena Costa which lies 15km southwest of Malaga airport between the localities of Fuengirola and Torremolinos.
The town is characterised by high-rise tourist developments meeting the demands of mass tourism, but recent developments have gone ahead with much stricter planning regulations than in the early days. A sign for better quality tourism is reflected in the marina of Benalmadena Costa which has been tastefully developed and handles more than 1,000 boats and yachts of all types, as well as a wide selection of Benalmadena hotels. It can be regarded as the focal point for Benalmadena's social scene and is central to the resort.
Beside the 8km of high quality beaches, tourists can enjoy a walk along the flat promenade to Torremolinos with plenty of little bars and restaurants on the way for refreshments. From the marina one can look out for the ancient Moorish watchtowers or alternatively walk in the other direction along the promenade to the western edge of the resort. Benalmadena Pueblo, on the other hand, is still an attractive old Spanish village with the typical whitewashed houses, so that it can be a refreshing escape from the newer developments and the mass tourism on the coast.
Visitors wanting to eat out in Benalmadena will find everything from fish and chip shops to traditional tapas bars and plenty restaurants with an international theme. Entertainment can be found in the Tivoli World amusement park in Arroyo de la Miel with Wild West and flamenco shows as well as cable-car rides. Not less popular are the Selwo Marina Dolphinarium and the Sealife Centre, which has the biggest shark collection in Europe. Water-sports facilities at the yacht club and numerous golf courses in the vicinity provide interesting sports offers, and by night tourists can enjoy the busy bar and nightclub scene with a casino at the upmarket Hotel Torrequebrada.
