"Costa De Sol" Benalmádena by Jim_Eliason

Benalmádena Travel Guide: 175 reviews and 471 photos


Benalmadena is one of the original resort cities along the Cost de Sol. However unlike Malaga or Marbella it appears to be without a historic core. It's a good place as a beach resort but does not offer much more than that.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beaches, tons of restaurants and shops
  • Cons:100% tourist trap
