Benalmádena is a town in the province of Málaga, situated approximately 12 km to the west of that city, between Torremolinos and Fuengirola.The town is home to the Enlightenment Stupa, the largest Buddhist structure in the West, standing 108 feet (33 m) tall.

The municipality has three main urban areas;
Benalmádena Pueblo, the original village, which lies about three kilometres inland, is a typical white-fronted Andalusian village.
Benalmádena Costa, an urban development on the coast with the usual discos, hotels, beaches, shopping centers and an impressive marina. Tourist attractions include a SeaLife aquarium and Selwo Marina, a theme park with dolphins, penguins and seals.The Parque Paloma is a more recent addition, beng a landscaped park with a large lake and animals running wild.

Arroyo de la Miel, (Stream of Honey) originally a separate village, is in the interior between the other two areas. It is now the main residential area, and is also the most commercially driven. It has several attractions such as the Tivoli World amusement park, and a teleferico (cable car) running to the summit of the 769-metre Calamorro mountain, providing panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar and the Moroccan coastline.

We could not locate any half decent videos in English for this place. Feel free to send a link if you find one!


Calahonda is  relatively peaceful when compared to nearby Marbella, Puerto Banus, Rhonda, Mijas Pueblo, Malaga and Gibraltar. It is only approximately 30 minutes drive from Malaga International Airport so is an ideal holiday location and a modern community, with all the conveniences that you would expect of a quality tourist destination. 
There is La Luna beach, which is a smallish more private beach, or you could visit the port, Puerto Cabopino,  particularly pretty at night, and a great beach during the day, or maybe visit the 3 parks in the locality, or take the tourist train through the town and surrounding area.
Calahonda has two golf courses, one a nine hole par three, La Siesta Golf Club, and the other an 18 hole course, Cabopino Golf Club.
