Planning Your Benalmadena Visit

Hang out at the Benalmadena Harbor

Spend a lot of time at the marina to get a real sense of the people and energy of the city. There’s plenty more to do than admire the boats— it’s surrounding architecture is a fascinating blend of Arabic and Gaudi influence. Check out the shopping or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sun set over the sea.

Rent A Car

Costa del Sol day trips! The best thing you can do in southern Spain is hit the road and see which beach it leads to next. Benalmadena or Torremolinos isn’t a decision you have to make.

What People Are Saying About Benalmadena

Could be better, need improvement and bus had to be refurbished.

Nice city to explore with Hop On Hop Off Bus to gave insight and a little bit history of Benalmadena. Bus really need to be refurbished to increase the excitement and the quality of the tour. Not enough information about the tour itself. Longer operating hour and more frequent tour would be nice.
