Benalmádena is a town in Andalusia in southern Spain, 12 km west of Málaga, on the Costa del Sol between Torremolinos and Fuengirola. Benalmádena is rich in attractive beaches and interesting places like the Colomares Castle, the 33-metre-tall Buddhist Benalmádena Stupa, the largest Buddhist stupa in Europe, the Benalmádena Marina and the Benalmádena Cable Car.

Benalmadena is home to Colegio Maravillas, a language school who provide Spanish lessons, activities and full board accommodation to students and teachers with meals. It is a very popular destination for our Spanish trips due to everything the school can provide. We can build itineraries which combine a good balance of onsite learning and activities, with exploring the town of Benalmadena, as well as other nearby areas.

In the town itself you can take a ride down the Teleferico Cable Car which will take you to the summit of Mont Calamorro. The resorts main market is held in Tivoli World car park on Friday mornings.

Take a wander to the Fountain Square or Plaza Espana and on to the Paloma Park. Visit the famous landmark of Bil-Bil castle on the way to the jewel of Benamladena, the Puerto Marina.
