This town in the province of Málga is situated between Torremolinos and Fuengirola. Phoenician, Carthaginian, Roman, Visigoth and Arab influences have all shaped Benalmádena, which consists of three areas: Benalmádena-Pueblo, in the mountains, Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmádena-Costa, a first-class tourist resort.

Tapas bars, a wide range of cuisine and the open character of the people make this town a fun place to be with a nightlife which is second to none. The beaches, Bil-Bil Castle and the delightful marina, declared one of the world's finest for its housing complex, make Benalmádena a charming place to spend a holiday.

Totally devoted to the tourist world, Benalmádena has developed a magnificent structure to that purpose; its good hotels and urbanisation, golf courses and the well known amusement parks, its pleasure crafts harbour and other installations of high level, make this town one of the main attraction in the Costa del Sol for the international tourism.

The beaches, as all the others in the Costa del Sol, are clean and nice and the mildness of the climate conduce to a complete enjoyment.

Something important to visit is the Archaeological Municipal Museum where a very interesting collection of Neolithic and pre-Columbian pieces are exhibited. Among its traditional dishes are the roasted baby pork, fried fish, grilled sardines, shell fish, gazpacho, etc.
