Benalmadena is a fast developing resort. It has beautiful, accessible beaches and a splendid promenade with a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops scattered along its length. The ruins of a Moorish watch tower guard the entrance to the extensive marina which has every facility for yachtsmen and boaters along with apartment blocks, more restaurants, wide streets and ample parking space. Quite close by is the castle Bil-Bil, dating from 1932, but now converted into a combined culture centre and exhibition hall, It also includes the tourist office. To the west of Benalmadena, there are twelve miles of uninterrupted sea and sand, and to the east, a collection of small sandy coves which are all very clean and safe. You will find bars and cafes right on the beaches.
