The Benahavís Area Guide
Benahavís is a beautiful secluded mountain village in southwest Marbella, located in the south of Spain. The village has a deep history dating back to the conquest of the Moors, and takes its name from Arabic, son of Havís, a Moorish prince from the 11th century. Benahavís is famous in Spain for being the 'dining room' of the Costa del Sol, or as the Spanish refer to it, the 'Rincón de la Gastronomía'. They call it this because it is teeming with the finest restaurants in Andalusia. The village also has beautiful walks and winding narrow alleys, as well as some of the most stunning views in southern Spain.
Things to Do
Benahavís has a very serene ambience, as it is surrounded by all kinds of nature. The land is very diverse, so walking around the town is a fantastic experience to take in the different variations of land. Much of the village is covered in parkland, while three different rivers are situated here - the Guadalmansa, Guadalmina and Guadaize rivers. There are beautiful walks along them, filled with pine trees, cork oaks and holm oaks. For those who like to climb, Las Angosturas gorge has over 60 different climbing routes, and can be found at the entrance of the village. Guadalmansa valley is also a point of interest, while the cave in Puerto Capuchino is definitely worth a visit.
The Moorish origins of the village are obvious from the sight of Montemayor Castle, which is perched over the village on the highest hilltop, and dates all the way back to the 11th century. Visitors are encouraged to visit the remains of the castle, and to take in the breath-taking views of the coastline, and of north Africa. For fitness lovers, there is a multi-sports complex near the river, which comes complete with a swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym and a football pitch.
Places to Eat
Benahavís is filled with the finest restaurants in Andalusia, with most ingredients sourced locally. The wealth in restaurants here may seem surprising given the size of the village, and each one has its own unique charm. Los Abanicos is a fantastic restaurant in the centre of Benahavís, and serves up lunch and dinner, with an array of Mediterranean dishes on offer. Flor de Lis is another standout restaurant, and takes particular pride in its seafood meals, particularly the octopus. Be sure not to miss its magnificent view from the outdoor terrace. Restaurante Eugenio Las Cañas is a family run restaurant serving specialities such as Rabo de Toro (bull's tail), and Cordero al Horno (leg of lamb). There are also excellent vegetarian options.
For cafés, look no further than All-in-1 Café, cooking up breakfast, lunch and dinner with a large selection of fresh drinks and smoothies. Hills Café offers more breath-taking views of the region, including a vast menu for all tastes.
Benahavís has all the essentials you need, with a few local shops, a bakery, a pharmacy and 4 different banks. A street market also takes place every Tuesday, selling fresh fruit, vegetables and meat, while there is also a 'rastro' (flea market) every Sunday. For more shopping options, San Pedro is only 10-minutes away by car, and has supermarkets such as Carrefour, Supersol and Mercadona. San Pedro is also home to a busy marketplace each Thursday. For fashion and retail shopping look no further than Puerto Banús, as there are 2 shopping centres and the marina strip for designer brands.
Getting There and Around
There are 2 buses that leave Marbella for Benahavís each day at 06.20 and 18.20, while a bus heads the opposite direction at 07.15 and 19.30, with the journey taking around 45 minutes. Taxis usually cost around 20 euros to make the same journey, and for those driving, going through the coastal Golden Mile route via the AP-7 expressway is the quickest and most scenic route.
