Top sights on a Benalmadena holiday

There aren’t many places in Spain where you can spend the morning rising up into the mountainside on a cable car then recline to the sandy beach in the afternoon. The things to see and do on holiday in Benalmadena are only limited by the time that you have there. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie looking for a fix or a sun seeker hoping to top up your tan, a holiday in Benalmadena is sure to tick all of the right boxes. When you first arrive in sunny Benalmadena, be sure to take a stroll along the promenade. Not only will this help you find your bearings, you can have a quick look at the top sights that you want to add to your to-do list.

Release your inner-child

A holiday in Benalmadena is a great opportunity to kick back and revert to your twelve year old self. The nearby amusement park, Tivoli World, is the best in the region and boasts some of the best roller coasters in Europe. Stick around for one of the Wild West shows and grab yourself a classic cowboy hat. The Benalmadena Sea Life Centre has the biggest collection of sharks in the continent alongside a fascinating mixture of weird and wonderful species. Make sure you take your camera and practice your best Jaws pose.

While the fun resort of Benalmadena provides more than enough for a sun, sea and sand getaway, no visit should be without a short trip up the hills into Benalmadena Pueblo. This high-up neighbour is a stark contrast to the coastal resort below and offers holidaymakers a chance to see the authentic side of Costa del Sol. The whitewashed houses are reminiscent of nearby Mijas and the narrow, steep streets are intimate to explore. Wind round the cobbled paths and discover a hidden gem in this cliff top retreat. Take a moment to buy a cool drink and find a comfy spot and watch the world go by in the coastal counterpart below.
