Welcoming Benalmádena

While Benalmádena may share with Torremolinos and Fuengirola the image of being an overdeveloped coastal town, we advise you to look beneath the surface and you will surely find the welcoming, open, international environment that you need to start your new life in Spain. Should you go looking for a property for sale in Benalmádena you should take your time. There are many local areas with different character to explore before deciding. In fact, Benalmádena is three towns in one. Coming down from the highway, you will find Benalmádena Pueblo, a small and quite traditional Andalusian white village which many European expats now choose to call home. At a Danish café you may choose to either discuss last Sunday’s Málaga FC’s game with the Spanish locals or the comings and goings of Scandinavian politics with your Swedish friends, who also happen to be locals. Further down the road, lies Arroyo de la Miel, a more conventional town where most of the Spaniards live and which is home to most of the facilities, including the renowned amusement park Tivoli World. Finally, you arrive at Benalmádena Costa, with its sprawling beach promenade, its chiringuitos, restaurants and night bars. And for sure, late hour fun is waiting for you at Puerto Marina Benalmádena.
