Benalmadena is a thriving resort that has grown from what was once just a sleepy village. For this reason, it retains a distinctly Spanish feel despite its modern attractions and tourist facilities.
Families will love holidays in Benalmadena due to the assortment of fun activities on offer. Tivoli World is a theme park offering white-knuckle rides alongside flamenco shows. The resort also has an aquarium, which is thought to be the best in Andalusia.
Boat rides are a must on a Benalmadena holiday – lucky tourists might get to spot some dolphins. The resort also takes in a series of small, but beautiful, beaches which offer an array of watersports.
The coastal part of the town is a hive of activity. There is a great variety of cocktail bars and eateries around the sparkling marina. For relaxed days and evenings, visitors should take a stroll around the charming old quarters of the resort.
