Benalmadena

Stretching from the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range to the Mediterranean ocean, Benalmádena offers all the highlights of southern Spain: traditional whitewashed villages, beautiful Costa del Sol beaches, and strong Andalusian influence.
Swim with Dolphins has been added to your itinerary. Get outdoors at Butterfly Park of Benalmadena and Garden of Eagles (Jardin de Las Aguilas). Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Cabopino Beach and Playa El Bajondillo. Change things up with these side-trips from Benalmadena: Ronda (Puente Viejo, Bodega Garcia Hidalgo, &more). There's still lots to do: get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure and step into the grandiose world of Castillo de Colomares.

Modern yet historic, Málaga is a lively city famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Museo del Vidrio y Cristal de Malaga and Plaza de la Constitucion Malaga. Get in touch with nature at Lobo Park and Playa de La Malagueta. Venture out of the city with trips to Playa de Cantarrijan (in Almunecar) and Nerja Book Centre (in Nerja). There's much more to do: enjoy the music at Kelipe Centro de Arte Flamenco, take in the spiritual surroundings of Santo Cristo de la Salud Church, delve into the distant past at Teatro Romano, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Plan a trip to Malaga easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
