Benalmadena is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Spain's Costa del Sol. It enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate which is mild throughout the year, with hot and dry summers. Inland is the original, traditional whitewashed village, but hotels in Benalmadena are located in the coastal resort. An apartment here guarantees sun, sand and sea fun. There is a welcoming sandy beach and excellent water sports facilities.
As a holiday resort on the Costa del Sol, Benalmadena offers a wide range of hotel and apartment accommodation. For example the Hotel Polynesia has three restaurants and is set close to Viborilla and Torreblance beaches. An apartment at the Hotel Balmoral offers sea, mountain and pool views and proximity to the cable car. The Holiday Hydros is perfect for the whole family as it boasts its own water park plus a full service spa, and is situated right by the sea. The THB Torrequebrada Class is located in front of a sandy beach and is also adjacent to a golf course. This plush hotel also has a full service spa, two swimming pools, a cabaret nightclub, a casino and a gourmet dining room. In short, much of your entertainment is right here adjacent to your apartment. The Apartamentos Doramor is a delightful Costa del Sol aparthotel which offers a poolside bar and a nightclub. For the budget conscious traveller to Benalmadena there is the Sol y Miel Hostel, which can offer a rooftop terrace, complimentary WiFi and a bar lounge and coffee shop.
The resort boasts some of the best attractions on the Costa del Sol, including a large marina built in typical Moorish style. The whole family can have fun at the Tivoli Amusement Park, which offers rides and shows, including some spectacular flamenco, and also themed bars and restaurants. The resort's teleferico, or cable car, will transport you to the summit of Calamorro Mountain with its superb views of the Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar and even the coast of far off Morocco! The resort also has two aquariums and a casino. Also worth seeing is the kitsch masterpiece called Colomares Castle with its eclectic mix of architectural styles.
