One of the most popular destinations on Spain’s Costa del Sol, Benalmadena is bursting with energy. Packed with family-friendly amusements and vibrant nightlife, it’s a town that has plenty to please both the young and the young at heart. Benalmadena holidays offer the chance to enjoy the Puerto Marina, which has twice been awarded Best Marina in the World and is sometimes described as the Andalucian Venice.
Naturally, there are also some great beaches as well as a variety of water sports, and interesting sightseeing and local culture. A couple of the more surprising sights include the largest Buddhist temple in Europe (complete with spectacular views) and Colomares Castle, a modern monument to Christopher Columbus. From the backdrop of the Sierra de Mijas mountains to the sparkling shores of the Mediterranean, holidays to Benalmadena really do stand out from the crowd.
