When: For the chance to admire other hot tourists and for up to eleven hours of sun a day – crikey! – head out from June to August.
Where: Without a doubt, stay by Benalmadena’s coastline for fantastic views and the chance to beach hop until your heart’s content. Beach hopping is a missing pastime from Britain, isn’t it? Good thing there’s the Costa del Sol!
Why: Be single and more than content browsing the boutiques, topping up your tan and sampling fresh seafood. There’s a lot you can do by yourself and with so many beaches to try out, who has time for a hanger on?
When: Between May to September. The weather’s exceptional and the resort has a lively atmosphere with everyone looking to let off a little steam.
Where: Pack in as much fun as you can by staying near the Puerto Marina where you’ll find several popular nightclubs, including Discoteca Aqua, where you can party the night away. Want more? Many of the bars that open late have stunning views of the marina, so you can sip cocktails in style. Bliss, right?
Why: Top up your tans on the beach during the day and then get ready to mingle as Benalmadena has an absolutely buzzing nightlife. You could even think about hiring a party boat! What happens on the boat stays on the boat...
When: Get your sunglasses and beach towels ready for May through to September. It’ll be hot and you can make the most of your time by checking out local festivals and events.
Where: Stay by the marina for a huge selection of eateries and candlelit meals. If your evenings can’t last long enough, stay up late into the night at the popular bars and nightclubs.
Why: Because you can only go to Devon and Cornwall so many times before you need a change of scenery. Amp up the romance in Benalmadena with a stroll along the promenade and take a cable car ride up the mountains.
When: You’ll want to steer clear of the winter months as it can get a little wet, so we recommend you visit Benalmadena between April to September to guarantee some fun in the sun. Easter holidays are a good shout as no one misses school and you’re sure to beat the crowds.
Where: Stay by the coast to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. There’s a hue range of bars, cafes and restaurants serving everything from tapas to more British and American style food. You can also be sure you’ll get some great views of the water.
Why: Benamadena holidays are great for the family as you’ve got free-range for adventure, relaxation and even wildlife watching. There’s sea life if your children are keen on sharks and turtles, and let’s face it, who isn’t? Tivoli World is great for the kids and is a destination in its own right; so much so, it even made its own currency.
