A lovely cable car ride to the top of the mountain taking about 15 minutes. The eagles display was superb and well worth watching. A must do to be recommended.

What a fabulous trip, note you can pick up discount voucher placed around the resort in apts and hotel. If you tie your trip to the bird of prey show time its brill, we went about 12 noon. All these beautiful birds living at the top of the mountain. I'm not that good with heights but the cable car hugs the mountain so it doesn't feel so bad. The views of the coast are breath taking and you can plane spot flights from Malaga airport, its sur real because you are higher than them. If your really feeling energetic you can walk down. We really loved this trip

Of course, it is an activity you must experience if you are in Benalmadena, because of the fantastic view to the coast, Malaga and Fuengirola and feeling that you are up in the air!
However I was little upset that we missed Eagles show, because we were not informed that this show is available at exact time once or twice a day when we were downtown..and yes, this is quite expensive attraction if you are just using cables.

Managed to convince my wife to take a trip on the Teleferico with me recently despite her hating heights. The ride up the mountainside, over 2.6 Km long and taking about 15 minutes was well worth the anguish she went through and those were her words not mine. The views you see whilst on the car itself are wonderful but are nothing compared to the views once you reach the top of the mountain which are just absolutely stunning in all directions. They are good from the top cable car station but if you are able and willing to climb a slightly slippy pathway ( It has a handrail ) for a further ten minutes to the very peak of the mountain then you are justly rewarded with a breathtaking experience and i don't just mean because of the climb. You feel on top of the world and can imagine what a birds eye view must really look like. In front of you is Benamadena and Torremolinos, to your right is Fuengirola and to your left is Malaga itself. Beautiful that's all i can say. We stayed and watched the Birds Of Prey Show which wasn't the best show i had ever seen but was thoroughly entertaining and you got very close to the birds. They sat on you as and when they wanted to, which was good fun and quite special to be able to touch them. There is a nice little cafe at the top which serves decent food and drink at a reasonable price for a tourist attraction. So even if you don't like heights, take the plunge, go up on the cable car. You really wont be disappointed!!

Fantastic experience. Reasonably priced at €13, takes about 15 minutes to get to the top of the mountain. Views do not disappoint, can see glimpses of the coast of Africa on a clear day. Andulucian horse show that is performed at the top was entertaining. All in all well worth a visit.
