We walked through here and there were a few shops to look at. It's more for locals rather than tourists but you can get the basics ... food, books, pharmacy, a few small clothes shops. There are also some small bars/restaurants if you fancy a snack.

The pueblo in Benalmadena is a hive of activity including shops, bars, restaurants and a great weekly street market on Fridays. The cable car station is located here which climbs all the way to the very top of the Benalmadena hills for spectacular views. On clear days it is possible to see Gibraltar and the Moroccan coast in North Africa.... More

This is a lovely town,not too many tôutists as in other areas. We enjoyed à delicious lunch with wine while sitting in the sun under an orange tree. The location of the restaurant was perfect. This is à small town easy to navigate and walk.

Pueblo was the first place we stayed 12 years ago. We love coming back to visit year after year. Love the little church and the views are lovely looking down on the other towns and villages. Highly recommended if you want a day trip out.

Very nicely preserved Spanish village originally dating from the Moorish period. Fine narrow streets with whitewashed houses decorated with potted flowers creating postcard images of the typical old Andalusian village. A stroll around the streets is a real delight and don't miss the views of the coast from the church. Any bus from outside the Benalmadena train station will take... More

You can walk if you like hiking up hills....personally i vouched for the bus (bus stop is 200 yds from Arroyo train station). a ticket costs 1.50 euro and the journey takes around 10 minutes. The village is idyllic, old... More
