Far nicer than Mijas as it is not so commercialised. Very typical of the region with beautiful white painted houses in little narrow streets, Spanish tiles & flowerpots. Some lovely restaurants for a lovely laid back lunch. There were also a couple of hotels that we had a look in & they were full of Spanish charm. The only drawback... More

We walked all the way from the shore of the beach up to the village of Benalmadena Pueblo. Great quaint village with nice little restaurants, up on the face of the hills behind Benalmadena Playa. Very nice village to visit!

away from the more commercial streets of Benalmadena, the pueblo and square are tucked away and if you're lucky enough to be in Spain during a fiesta, you can eat outside at a restaurant in the square and watch the processions - fabulous!

Went here a couple of days before we left. There's only one word to describe it -beautiful and authentic. Would have loved to have discovered earlier and gone at the night. Highly recommend a visit

It's so beautiful and peaceful here. Lots of shops tucked away. Flowers and fountains everywhere. There are also wonderful restaurants if you venture down the side roads including La Fuente where we had a fantastic meal! Near the church there is a lovely view! Lots of buses and taxis too.

Visited here on 1 evening during a trip to Benalmadena. Very clean and picturesque village with a beautiful church which has fantastic views of the surrounding area. Well worth a visit for a stroll and dinner if you'd like a change from the main Benalmadena resort.

It's hard to believe this place is a short distance from the coast. We have always enjoyed coming to Benalmadena but this is our first time staying in the old town & it will hopefully not be our last. It is everything you imagine an old Spanish town to be, loads of character with lovely whitewashed houses, little tavernas, squares... More

This is beautiful Spanish village , high up in the hills of Benalmadena, however there is a regular bus service for about 2 euros. Its not very big, mainly just a high street, with some side roads, and its far enough away not to be mobbed the tourist brigade. There's a few shops and bars and some great views over... More
