Walked from the station down to Benalmadena Marina, well worth the walk, steep hills but lots of lovely tavernas on the way down.

This is a little gem, much smaller than Mijas but just as quaint. We caught the bus from the Windmill roundabout €1-55 each. It was a cool and cloudy morning so we walked to the Spanish Plaza and had a warm coffee in a nice cafe. We walked to the viewing area and wandered around the narrow streets and visted... More

The Pueblo was a fantastic find. We took a taxi which was 10 euros each way. I'm sure the bus is cheaper but there was 4 of us and it was easier. It is the beautiful old part of Benalmadena before it stretched out to coast and they started building MacDonald and Burger King's. As well as beautiful streets, stunning... More

Nice to visit and see bit of old Spain away from busy beach resorts. Easily accessible by bus or taxi. Nice to stroll through narrow streets.

Nice village on mountainside. Very nice views. Old sreets, plazas, easily accessible by bus from the coast. Restaurants are a bit too "touristy" but if you walk a couple of blocks, you ll find little eateries which provide a much better experience.

We have friends in the Pueblo and visited them many times. We are living in Malaga historic center, but retired and explore areas constantly. We have eaten at many of the restaurants there, walked around the village and love it's quaint, quiet atmosphere. Great transportation to Arroyo de la Miel where you can catch the train to Malaga or Fuengirola.... More
