Benalmadena is located 19km west of Malaga International Airport and sits in between the coastal resorts of Torremolinos and Fuengirola. Its average rainfall per year is 610mm and has an average yearly temperature of 18 degress. It has a population of 65,965 inhabitants. Benalmadena is one of the more popular tourist destinations on the Costa del Sol and is split into 3 main areas. These are the traditional and original settlement of Benalmadena, Benalmadena Pueblo, the cosmopolitan town of Arroyo de la Miel and the various areas that make up 10km of coast line, (13 beaches of which 5 are blue flag) that is Benalmadena Costa.
Benalmadena Pueblo is situated in the foothills of the mountains and about 5km from the coast. Most areas of this village offer breath taking views of the Mediterranean from Fuengirola to Malaga. The village attracts many day visitors as it has managed to keep its traditional Spanish village look with white washed walls, narrow flower filled cobbled streets and small plazas (squares) where traditional Spanish cafe bars reside. Many visitors enjoy the tranquillity of the village taken in a real taste of Spanish life whilst enjoying local cuisine and tapas.
Arroyo de la Miel is a small but modern town that lies between the village and the coast and is the central point for Benalmadena's local and foreign expat community to dine, be entertained and shop. It is also home to Benalmadena train station that links the resort to Fuengirola and Malaga via the airport. The bus service is similar to that of the village with a few additional routes that go to the urbanisations along the Benalmadena coast. This has made Arroyo de la Miel a popular commuter town.
Benalmadena costa has a numerous and varied selection of hotels that align the beach front, the main road and side streets of this popular tourist destination. The main area of Benalmadena Costa lies between the award winning marina and the area of Torrequebrada which is home to Benalmadena's only casino. Within this area there are plenty of restaurants, bars, clubs and entertainment venues that cater for many nationalities.
