Places to visit
A promenade stretches along the coast to the Puerto Marina (Marine Port), which boasts excellent shopping and dining. The marina is also home to The Sea Life Centre, home to all types of marine wild life.
You can take a stroll around to look at the floating hotels and millionaire’s yachts and at night the Puerto Marina becomes a party zone.
La Paloma Park is a gorgeous location in the center of Benalmadena Costa. There is a stunning array of flora and fauna, plus a menagerie of animals including hens, rabbits, goats and exotic birds. The park is beautifully landscaped with themed gardens and rocky waterfalls, which run down to the lake. There are two bars within the park where you can relax into the evening listening to the calls of peacocks.
Beside La Paloma park, you can visit Selwo Marina, the sister to Selwo Adventure Park. Modeled around different locations in South America, you can view close up dolphins, sea lions, crocodiles, exotic birds and snakes. Recently a penguin habitation has been installed giving a glimpse of the Antarctic in Andalucia.
This was one of the best apartments i have stayed in while on vacation, the location is excellent and close to many bars, restaurants and shops with the beach only 80 meters away. The apartment itself is very spacious with a massive balcony inc view with stunning views and I would definetely stay here again.
Het appartement is prima in orde Allen confort was aanwezig Press internet Press airco Alles netjes en clean Het interieur is niet direct onze smaak, maar ja smaken verschillen De caretaker was vriendelijk en punctueel Is zeker een aanrader We hadden wel pech, op het app boven begon men met verbouwingen. Dus kloppen boren hameren van s morgens tot savonds Niet leuk! Weer viel tegen maar daar is homeaway natuurlijk niet voor verantwoordelijk Besluit: zeker voor herhaling vatbaar, maar dan zonder bouwwerf
The apartment in Benalmadena we stayed in was luxurious, large, huge terrace, all amenities and more. The beach to the marina was a few minutes walk away, but all the shops were literally on your doorstep, hardly any noise due to bars being so far away triple glazing on all windows in bedrooms, fully air conditioned. Will go back to this fab apartment.
The location of this apartment was perfect for us, literally a few minutes walk away from shops, the nearest supermarket & bars / restaraunts etc, but perfectly peaceful enough to enjoy lazing around on the terrace. Can easily walk to the marina or nearest beach in 5-10 mins. The apartment itself is quite large compared to those we've rented in Spain in the past. The main bedroom is en suite and there is a separate 2nd bathroom. It's the first time we've had an appt. with 2 bathrooms and with a teenager in tow it made a big difference. There were plenty of towels in both bathrooms, they were a bit on the small side though, no bath towels. Both bedrooms are air conditioned, the aircon units worked well and were not obtrusive in terms of noise etc. The kitchen is a decent size with a little terrace off it, nice to sit with breakfast and watch the comings and goings of the green parakeets that were in residence in a palm tree on the other side of the road. The main living / dining area is well furnished and air conditioned but we did not really use it that much because of the terrace, which is probably this appt's main feature. It's big enough to accomodate a 3 piece garden suite & table, couple of sun loungers, separate table and chairs for dining and a pretty big gas bbq which we used a few times while we were there. We could not actually find any bbq tools but managed to get by with a pair of tongs we found in a kitchen drawer. Shade during the day can be provided by a couple of overhead blinds which operate by remote control. We've actually been in the appt. for a few days before we figured that one out! This is where we spent most of our time at the appt. it's big enough to use the actual living space which is really what you want when the weather is good. Our airport transfers were arranged for us by the caretaker Sole, apart from that we did not really need to have any contact with her while we were there, although she did text us to give us advance warning of the forecast for strong winds one day to make sure we moved anything off the terrace that might get blown away. It was our first time in Benalmadena and we've already decided that we would like to go back, if we do go back it'll be this appt.
