We stayed a 5 minute walk from here and what a beautiful relaxing place to visit. Spotless beach and promenade, shops, restaurants and sand sculptures to beat anything I’ve seen before. Will return again next year.

Really lovely beach with plenty of restaurants and shops the ice cream shop at Torremolinos is to die for. The promenade reaches to Benalmádena and its beautiful harbour.

hi, my partner and i are going to stay in the hotel pez espada hotel from sunday 29th of october for a week with our 7 month old baby. we were wondering what activities are available in the area. We were thinking of going to Benalmadena Pueblo at night for a meal and maybe heading to malaga for a day of sightseeing and shopping. All tips are greatly welcomed, we stayed here in august of last year and loved it but didnt travel outside of the area.

For Benalmadena Pueblo try La Fuente, la nina or El Muro for great food. We liked La Fuente best, however for a special meal we like La Perla opposite the bottom of the glass lift.
