If you are looking for a modern day seaside resort for your COSTA DEL SOL HOLIDAY RENTALS make it Benalmadena. This purpose built resort is situated on the beautiful Costa del Sol between Torremolinos and Fuengirola. With eight kilometres of beach laid out in front of the village and a mountain back drop plunging down to the coastline makes for a picturesque setting. Not only is there an excellent beach life here there is also a vibrant night life.

Benalmadena Pueblo is the original part of the village which is located high on the side of the mountain.

This old village is easily accessible by a cable car that runs up the mountain, when you reach the top you will have a spectacular view of the surrounding area.

The beach of Benalmadena is like most of the other beaches on the Costa del Sol with its wide sweeping find sand but it also has some interesting little coves further along. These coves offer a private area where you can have a little “me” time or climb the rocky outcrops extending out into the Mediterranean Sea. Just a little further along the beach is the newly renovated marina of Benalmadena where you can spend the day at one of the dock side cafes, drinking coffee while you watch the multimillion dollar yachts enter and leave the marina; with a thousand births there is a lot of action. If you prefer a day trip then one of the larger boats makes daily runs over to Gibraltar, Morocco and the Caves of Nerja; if you would like to do a little shopping there then be sure to take lots of Euros with you. When you return from your day out stay at the marina as this is where most of Benalmadena's night life is situated.

When you come on holiday to Benalmadena be sure and bring the children with you as there is a lot to keep them busy. Just down the road in Arroyo is the well known Tivoli World Amusement Park and the Selwo Marine Dolphinarium and Sea Life Centre, which is home to the largest collection of sharks in Europe.
