This is a wonderful place for those who love the out doors. There is horse riding, walking along the many hill tracks behind the old village, a number of dive centres, some with training pools, a yachting marina, water Skiing and so much more
The town has been popular over the years and associated with many famous names. Benalmadena is the home of actor Antonio Banderas, and he and Melanie Griffith often visit Benalmadena's attractive yachting marina.
The original heart of Benalmadena is a typical Andaluz village in the foothills of the mountains which sweep down to the shore. The narrow, flower-filled streets hold evidence of the former civilizations which used to exist in this area.
90 minutes to Granada and a little more to the ski resort of Sierra Nevada
