Benalmádena Pueblo

Benalmádena Pueblo itself is a typical Spanish White Village also known as the Old Village with lots of little quaint narrow streets paved with cobblestones.  The street beside is where the apartment is situated, on the road that leads to the church. The Pueblo offers a relaxed atmosphere and an insight into the Spanish way of life! It’s location also gives exceptionally easy access to all of the Costa’s local attractions.

 

Benalmádena is situated on the Costa del Sol and lies between Málaga and Fuengirola, almost an extension of Torremolinos,  situated on the side of the Sierra de Mijas by the Autovía de Mediterráneo, just 20 km from Málaga Center. There are also train and bus links to the town from Malaga, Fuengirola, Torremolinos, etc.. 


The climate is mild, varying between a minimum winter temperature of 5 degrees and 35+ in summer.
