Pueblo Holidays

‘Pueblo’ is the Spanish word for village or small town. Benalmadena Pueblo is the coastal village set on the mountainside overlooking the coast. Hundreds of years ago this location was chosen as a means of safety from seaborne Invaders. Today, the province of Benalmadena is made up of 3 main areas; Benalmadena Pueblo, Benalmadena Costa (beachfront) and Arroyo de la Miel which is a pretty and bustling town.

Although Benalmadena Pueblo is central to many attractions on the coast, the main attraction is undoubtedly the village itself. It retains it's typical Andalucian character and charm, with whitewashed houses, narrow streets, and friendly locals. Even in the height of summer when the streets can be bustling with tourists, the village never loses it's relaxed atmosphere.

It is the perfect place to experience the charm and tranquility of Spanish village life, while benefiting from the beaches and facilities of the Costa del Sol.

There are plentiful restaurants and bars offering good value, and a variety of good food (including delicious local tapas). In the centre you will find Plaza España, with the well known sculpture 'La nina de Benalmádena' as well as shops offering local arts and crafts.
