Life of the Costa del Sol

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. While largely known as a beach destination for its year-round warm weather, Benalmádenais also rich in archaeological importance, with ruins dating back to the Paleolithic period. Although the region has experienced significant growth to accommodate growing tourism, it retains the original cultural charm of historic Andalusian villages.
