Benalmadena consists of three areas, Benalmadena Costa which is the coastal area, Arroyo de la Miel which is more inland and Benalmadena Pueblo which is on the mountainside. Benalmádena is known for its beaches and Tivoli World theme park. The modern Puerto Marina is home to the Sea Life Benalmádena aquarium and moored yachts. In Benalmadena Pueblo, a traditional Andalusian old town lie the Castillo Monumento Colomares, a castle-style monument dedicated to Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America, and the Benalmádena Stupa, a large Buddhist temple.
Benalmadena is just 19 kilometers from Malaga Airport. It’s easy to reach from both Malaga capital and International Airport by road, train or bus and its privileged position looking out onto the Mediterranean Sea. It is always lively, but the busiest time of year is during the hot summer months.
