Fantastic way to spend some time when in Benalmadena!
Very easy to find the base. Face the station entrance in Benalmadena, go up the road on the right of it and its just there. 13.25 euros for adults, but plenty of 2 euro off coupons around resort.
Looks pretty intimidating when you first get going. The mountain looks very steep and the pylons look high. In actual fact its not as bad as it looks as for the most part you are riding pretty close the mountain. Going over the motorway is the most tense point as other people have commented. I also stopped there for a moment as they slowed it down a little - must have been to let people off.
journey takes around 10 minutes, and the views are great. When you get to the top, make sure you look at all three viewpoints. The highest one is definitely worth the effort, but you need to be sure footed. The views are just brilliant and I spent ages just looking at picking out detail of the coast and beyond. You could see way beyond Malaga and the other way, over past Fuengirola to Gibraltar and Africa in the distance. Stunning.
Well worth a visit.
Cafe, snacks, shop, loos up there etc. I didnt time it right for the bird show but that also meant no real queuing to get a car down.
