Why go to Benalmádena

On Spain’s famous Costa del Sol, Benalmádena holidays are about long, lazy days under the Andalusian sun and energetic evenings when it has gone down. But it’s not just sun loungers and sangria here – everything from curious castles to theme-park thrills are waiting.

For your first stop, it’s hard to ignore the beach and Benalmádena has them in spades; think golden ribbons of sand, rocky beaches and even swimsuit-optional secluded coves. The resort has everything you need for a beach day: loungers and parasols, chiringuitos (beach bars) and shops to buy a bucket.

Building sandcastles will probably be top of the kids’ to-do list, but there are plenty of other activities to keep young ones entertained, too. There are opportunities for up-close encounters with animals and two amusement parks – one with rides, the other with slides – a short drive away. Family-friendly accommodation ranges from all-inclusive hotels to cheap-and-cheerful self-catering apartments.
