Stretching from the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range to the Mediterranean ocean, Benalmádena offers all the highlights of southern Spain: traditional whitewashed villages, beautiful Costa del Sol beaches, and strong Andalusian influence.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Playa La Carihuela and Avenida del Mar. Attractions like Playa El Bajondillo and Lobo Park make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Benalmadena side-trips: Pileta Caves (Cueva de la Pileta) (in Benaojan), Ronda (Puente Nuevo, Plaza de Toros, & more) and Nerja (Church of El Salvador, Balcon de Europa, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Río Chíllar, make a trip to Setenil de las bodegas, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and step into the grandiose world of Castillo de Colomares.

To find other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Benalmadena tour planner.
