Holiday Villas in Benalmadena

Overlooking the shimmering blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Benalmadena sits surrounded by beautiful beaches and lush hill sides.  There are three different parts to this section of the Costa del Sol, each with its own unique attractions.  Holiday villas in the Benalmadena Costa and the town of Arroyo de la Miel attract people looking for a lively break, while self-catering villas in the Benalmadena Pueblo give guests the opportunity to enjoy the charm of an authentic Spanish Old Town as well as beautiful scenery.

Most of the holiday villas in Benalmadena that are featured on this website are located between Torremolinos and Fuengirola in Spain, offering access to a variety of picturesque coves and beaches.  The coast is a mixture of excellent shingle, natural sand and man-made beaches, nearly 10km of which have been awarded Blue Flag status for high standards of cleanliness and amenities.  Most Benalmadena villas are located near a selection of beaches, allowing you to choose between smaller, quieter coves and larger, more popular stretches of sand.  During a Benalmadena villa holiday you will find extra amenities such as parasols and sun loungers on the more touristy beaches like Malapesquera Beach, Santa Ana Beach and Torre Bermeja Beach.       

There is an abundance of cultural, natural and modern attractions so you will never be short of things to do, unless of course you are seeking a day of relaxation in the sun.  During a Benalmadena villa holiday you can visit many of the tourist attractions in the region, such as the Jardin de Las Aguilas (Garden of Eagles), where you can see around 160 different birds of prey as well as a collection of snakes.   Many families who stay in holiday villas in Benalmadena visit the Sea Life and Selwo Marina waterparks, which are home to a variety of animals such as sharks, dolphins and penguins.

Holiday villas in Benalmadena Pueblo are popular with people who want a traditional Spanish holiday, filled with history.  The Andaluz village, which perches on a hill overlooking Benalmadena Costa, is an idyllic haven of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses with brightly coloured hanging flowers.  The characteristic Old Town is also worth a day visit for guests staying in a villa in the Benalmadena Costa or Arroyo de la Miel.  The Plaza de España in the centre of the Old Town is the main hive of activity and you will also find the "niña de Benalmadena", a statue of “the little girl of Benalmadena” holding a seashell.  There are plenty of cafés and small boutiques that sell a variety of goods in the Andaluz village, making it the perfect place for a leisurely day of souvenir shopping during a Benalmadena villa holiday.    

In contrast to the most modern area of Benalmadena, the town of Arroyo de la Miel is an example of one of Spain’s contemporary locations.  The main attraction is the Tivoli World theme park, which provides thrills and excitement for all ages with a variety of rides.  Many people staying at villas in Benalmadena also take the cable car ride on the Telecabina that can be found across from the theme park.  The eight minute journey which takes you high onto a mountain offers a breathtaking view of the area.  In the centre of Arroyo de la Miel you will find a railway station that has regular trains to Malaga and Fuengirola, if you feel like a day trip during a Benalmadena villa holiday.     

Many people visit the Costa del Sol for its lively atmosphere and popular nightlife, which is what makes villas in the Benalmadena Costa region so popular.  The focal point of the region is the area’s marina, which is busy both day and night.  A variety of pubs and clubs ranging from live music to dance can be found.  There are also many restaurants that serve a mixture of national and international dishes, meaning that you will never be short of choice when eating out on a Benalmadena villa holiday.
