Definitely worth a visit and is only 1.55 euros each way on the bus from Benalmadena. There is a lovely square called Plaza de Espana where you can get coffee, snacks and tapas. This is near a lovely church and an area of spectacular views.

If you visit Benalmadena you have to go to Pueblo! It feels like a totally different world with narrow streets, a calmer pace, lovely views and quaint houses everywhere. Take bus no M-103 from centre of Benalmadena/Arroyo de Miel. It's a bit of an up...More

Spent a couple of hours just wandering around the beautiful peaceful white washed streets. Lovely small houses with potted plants every where, quaint shops dotted about lovely restaurants, where you can get a snack or drinks. The views are stunning.

The Pueblo is typical of the many in Costa Del Sol and Spain in general with the white village structures and red tile roofs welcoming those who just want to relax stroll and eat.

Just back from a 3 night stay in the Pueblo and we were blown away by the beauty of the place. It is a million miles away from the coastal resorts in that it is so peaceful and beautiful. Lovely plaza's, pretty little narrow streets,...More

We spend a few hours wandering the streets and viewing sites in the old quarter of Benalmadena; much nicer than walking the beach streets with its cheap souvenir shops and restaurants. Had lunch at a restaurant in the Plaza Espana and enjoyed exploring the streets...More

Hey, We are staying in Benalmadena from the 21st April, for my girlfriends birthday i'm planning on taking her to Pueblo, The Old Village, as we really like a taste of 'old spain' - which I believe Pueblo will provide. So would you agree - if so any recommendations , highlights at Pueblo which we should head for? We'll go for something to eat so any recommendations in Pueblo would be welcomed. Are the buses regular and should we risk an evening meal or could we end up being stranded?! We...More

For a special treat I agree with La Fuente. There is also La Perla and The Longhorn but La Fuente has a lovely setting as it's in a square with a fountain. A taxi from/to Arroyo is between 8 and 10 euros.

Can anyone please tell me how we get from Torremolinos to Benalmadena Pueblo (The Old Village) by public transport. Is the trip worth it? Is it better than Mijas?

Benal Pueblo has some lovely parts and is certainly worth a visit - as Mantalk says, all the Mijas buses stop just above it (one stop before the Stupa), certainly worth visiting. A 'day out up there' often involves a stop at Benal Pueblo, then onwards to Mijas, followed by the fast bus down to Fuengirola and then the train back.
