Location & Surrounding Area


Located just 15 minutes’ drive from Málaga international airport, Benalmádena is one of the Costa del Sol’s most popular all year round destinations. Its relaxed sun and sea lifestyle, fantastic leisure culture and close proximity to the renowned luxury hotspots of Marbella and Puerto Banús, attract many thousands of visitors every year.

Benalmádena comprises three distinct areas; Benalmádena Costa and the slightly elevated Pueblo ‘white village’ and Arroyo de la Miel, each with a different character but equally as popular.

Benalmádena is famous for its award-winning marina, often named as the ‘best marina in the world’ due to its fantasy Arabic influenced architecture, artificial islands and over 1,000 moorings. It is also a hub of activity, bustling with shops, restaurants, a sailing club and a sea life aquarium. This stretch of coastline is also blessed with almost 10 kilometres of sandy beaches, bars, hotels, a casino and a beautiful promenade, attracting visitors of all ages and nationalities.
