Go for an adventure
In Benalmadena, you can hire a boat to take you around the coast or sightseeing the dolphins and whales. You can also take a cable car ride to the top of a mountain to see some fantastic views.
See some cultural sites
Benalmadena is home to one of the largest stupas (a structure important in Buddhism) in the Western World. In fact, it is the largest measuring 33 metres tall.
Another great structure is the Castillo de Colomares (Colomares Castle) which is located at the Carretera Costa del Sol. Although it is just a small stone castle, it has the look that you would expect from fairytales.
Benalmadena is also home to another castle, the Bil-Bil Castle, which is an Arab-style structure, built in 1934. It's a great example of a well-to-do Moorish house with an indoor courtyard and a lovely garden.
Of course, Casa de la Cultura should not be forgotten to experience the local traditions as well as other exhibitions.
Visit amusement parks
When you come on holiday with children, there's no better place to take them than to amusement parks and Benalmadena is certainly not lacking in this department.
There is the Selwo Marina which showcases the marine mammals and birds of South America and there's Tivoli World that features an array of rides and games.
Benalmadena certainly has a ton of things to offer more than just its lovely beaches. So, head on over to experience its many wonders!
