Benalmadena is a popular tourist town in Spain’s Costa del Sol between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, on the southern coast. Easily accessible, it is located just 30 minutes from Malaga Airport.

Holidaymakers flock to Benalmádena for its fine golden sand beaches, but there is far more to this stunning town than its pristine coast. Our villas and apartment rentals in Benalmádena put you at the heart of it all. Explore the traditional old village with its typical Andalucian architecture and magnificent Colomares Castle, stroll down the famous Puerto Marina with its luxury yachts, or sample the delicious gastronomy at the upscale restaurants and bars.

Benalmadena’s fine dark sand beaches are really something special, while each has its own distinct charm: some attracting the livelier crowds with an array of water sports, some quieter and more secluded, some surrounded by lush vegetation, while others offer top-of-the-range facilities, allowing you to enjoy the nearly 20-kilometre stretch of coastline in your own special way. La Viborilla beach is arguably the most beautiful and a real slice of paradise with its tiny coves, surrounded by a small forest and dotted with palm trees and pretty straw beach umbrellas.
