Of the 3 defined areas within the boundaries of Benalmadena, Benalmadena Pueblo (The Ancient White Town), Arroyo de la Miel (Modern shopping village) and Benalmadena Costa where the majority of bars, restaurants, hotels and attractions are located together with the more obvious (it’s in the name) coast line with miles of sandy beaches, it is the latter that is best known by tourists and visitors to the area.
Hundreds of places for eating, drinking and cavorting to cater for couples, groups, families and even the Stag & Hen parties whilst only a few miles along the coats road (N340) from Torremolinos and Marbella to add many more attractions and adventures to experience.
The beaches have a promenade walkway without vehicles so you can walk along in safety whilst the traffic is on the road higher up the incline towards the Pueblo.
Both the promenade and the main Caraterra de Cadiz have myriad bars and restaurants to enjoy with the beachfront being slightly more expensive and the main road bars offering better deals with the added joy of traffic noise and gas fumes.
From the border with Montemar (LIDL Store) all the way along to Carvajal at the border of Fuengirola, the coastline has plenty to enjoy, including the Marina, secluded and even nudist beaches, the Torrequebrada Casino and many places to enjoy varied watersports.
Be sure to check out Plaza Sol y Mar (24HR Square as it has become known) for lively bars and night clubs.
