Located close to Malaga city, Benalmadena is one of the Costa de Sol's most popular seaside resorts, with lots of great restaurants, extensive beaches and an enviable climate. Benalmadena is a firm favourite with families and couples, with the town's summer population growing to 100,000.Whether you're looking for a holiday property for yourself, an investment, or you're looking to move out to sunny Andalucia either for part of the year or full-time, Benalmadena is an excellent location.
You can choose either a spacious, well-located apartment on the seafront of Benaldamena Costa, with Mediterranean Sea views, with easy access to beaches, a traditional town house in the typically Andalucian pueblo (old centre) on the hill, or a larger villa on the edge of the town, which offers more space and privacy. You'll find a wide variety of properties in Benalmadena to suit all budgets.
Benalmadena has 7km of beautiful sandy beaches close to the town, where you can see remains of Phoenician and Roman watchtowers.
