Midway point between Barcelona and Malaga?

Hello, I'm planning on visiting Malaga next month, I'm doing a backpacking trip from France down and need a place to go in between Barcelona and Malaga that will cut down the otherwise lone travel time for a night/day.

What are some good spots roughly in the middle of the two cities?

I suggest Alicante or Benidorm.

There aren't really that many more places to stop off at along the way. Maybe an idead to google the map of Spain, and check out the stops around half way and ask in the forum for those areas? May give you a better idea.. but then if its just for that night just stick a pin in the map half way and see where you end up :D
