Benalmadena – lively seaside town

Benalmadena has developed enormously over the last 30 years. The original town was Benalmadena Pueblo, located a few kilometres inland from the coast at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. This region still retains its Andalusian atmosphere with its narrow streets and whitewashed houses. This part of the city has everything you need for a seaside holiday: a wide range of hotels in different categories, restaurants, bars, shops, nightclubs, discos, etc. It is worth visiting the port, the Sea Life zoo, the Tivoli amusement park, and taking the cable car to the top of Calamorro, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the whole city. For those seeking peace and quiet, Benalmadena is not necessarily the perfect destination.

Property prices here also depend largely on location, distance from the beach, age of the property and its condition. If you choose to buy here, you can find property in almost every price range. A 2-bedroom apartment here can be bought for €200,000 or less, but in a resort-style development (such as El Higueron) it can go for up to three times that.
