More of the Beach
This picture, taken at the end of the beach, before the harbour, shows the golden, sandy beach, where a game of volleyball was underway. Just in front of Mary, and behind the camera, is a Burger King. We were waiting for our Burgers, which Jaymes had gone to buy. Good boy!
Puerto Marina views
I loved some of the decorations of the port, as I love gaudi mosaics, and the mix of Andalusian and Arabic stiles.
Maybe I also loved as lately I avoid crowded places and it was very quiet that thursday.
Maybe too much oriented to Brits... as personal opinion
Benalmádena is the town next to Torremolinos divided by the yacht-marina, Puerto Deportivo, which a magical place. It actually looks like a small Arabic town :) It is buzzing with life and has got a great night-life, restaurants, shops, an aquarium, street-vendors etc. (see my tip on the marina).
The population of Benalmádena is ca 50.300 but increases in summer time with hundreds of thousands tourists visiting this lovely area.
There is a lovely park in Benalmádena called Paloma Park, last time I visited it there was a circus in town in the park. There is a big lake in the park and freeroaming in the park are rabbits, peacocks and chicken. Across the road from the park is Selwo Marina.
The beaches in Benalmádena stretch all the way from Torremolinos and down to Fuengirola. Lovely beaches and the promenade is extraordinary with art-work in the promenade like every 10 meters (see my tip on that).
Benalmádena has got a lot of shops, restaurants, bars, good supermarkets, Supersol, Mercadona, Lidl and OpenCor to name some. There are a lot of hotels and a great beach-life in Benalmádena and a very beautiful promenade. The town has got a casino, Tivoli world, golf courses and a sailing school. The atmosphere there is slightly different from that of Torremolinos, it looks like it is a bit more expensive area?
I add some links with information on Benalmádena there is more information here and here
