Beautiful unspoilt town in between Torramelinos and Benalmadena. The town is crammed with numerours eating places depending on which type of food you enjoy. Obviously fish is the main choice but there are a number of restaurants that for me are head and shoulders above the others, namely Meatino and a lesser known but extremely "Spanishy" El Parri, which can...

The Carahuela is and excellent place to sunbathe, catch a few drinks or have a nice meal. It is clean and well maintained and runs along to the beautiful marina at Benalmadena.

Always a great place to visit in February, sunshine and quiet. Fabulous for a stroll or something more energetic. All flat on the beachside walkway with plenty of watering holes.

Far too many restaurants and bars along this huge stretch of beach offering such good value for money from breakfast, lunch right through to evening meals. Lovely to grab a beer and sit and people watch

We used to come here twice a year till about six years ago. We absolutely love the place. We came back to see what it is like and it has not changed. Some of the bars and restaurants have changed hands or been done up but the place is still as it was. Lots of restaurants, predominantly sea food, and... More

Really nice resort, loads of restaurants, shops and a few bars, nice beachfront to stroll along and close to belnamadena and torremelinos each is walkable. Clean and friendly. If your looking for discos this is not the place but if you like nice beach, eating out and decent bars this is a nice place. Be good for families

Lots of places to eat and drink - I would recommend the square by night then the beach front by day. If you are up to it, a walk to Benalmadena marina is approx 45 mins down the promenade, well worth the walk.
