Those of you who have stayed at Sunset Beach Club will have seen it pass by the hotel several times a day. We’re talking about ‘Starfish’, the popular ferry boat which takes passengers from Benalmadena Marina to Fuengirola (and back).

We love Instagram! There, we’ve said it.
This relatively new social network – which allows you to take fabulous photos, apply cool filters and effects and share them with your network – is growing at an amazing rate; it now boasts over 200 million active users worldwide!
Instagram is all about sharing great photos. It’s easy to use – even someone who has no photography skills can make a photo look amazing – fun and highly addictive. Browsing through your Instagram feed you’ll see spectacular images taken by ‘normal’ people, just like you and I :-).
Muelle Uno is a large open-space leisure and recreation area which opened just over 2 years ago as part the ambitious remodelling of MalagaPort. With more than 50 shops and restaurants as well as cultural activities and events, it’s a required stop for anyone visiting Málaga.
Selwo Marina in Benalmádena has to be one of our favourite family attractions. Located just next to Paloma Park this is the only Dolphinarium in Andalucia and offers visitors a spectacular experience which includes dolphin exhibitions, sea lion show, exotic birds show and penguin feeding to name but a few.
As well as the regular programme and shows, Selwo Marina also offers special and unique experiences which allow you to see behind the scenes and interact with its friendly inhabitants. You can choose between the special VIP visit (includes pretty much everything), the dolphin encounter, swimming with sea lions and the VIP penguin visit.
Fancy trying a fun new water park where you’ll be able to jump, slide, dive and test your balance skills?
If you’ve walked along the promenade in Benalmadena, Puerto Banus or Fuengirola, you may well have seen some bizarre looking inflatable structures floating about 50m off shore. Well these are actually new state of the art water parks where you and the family will have a whale of a time!
If you have kids and are looking for a fun day out, we recommend you take a trip up to the Donkey Sanctuary (Refugio del Burrito) in Fuente de Piedra (see map below).
A short 45 minute drive from the Coast, the Donkey Sanctuary is located in a traditional Spanish Cortijo and is home to over 70 rescued donkeys. The traditional buildings and charming olive groves provide a safe haven for donkeys and mules rescued from all over Europe.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you lost your British Passport whilst on holiday in the South of Spain?
Unfortunately it’s quite a regular occurrence and one you’ll want to avoid if you don’t want to go through the hassle of having to replace it with an emergency one before flying home.
Passports could be misplaced or lost and, in some unfortunate cases, may even be stolen by petty thieves who thrive on unsuspecting holiday makers.
We know that many of the guests who visit Sunset Beach Club every year like to hire a car and explore some of the hidden treasures the Costa del Sol has to offer.
In a previous post we warned you of the possible consequences of not paying speeding or parking fines when you rent a car in Spain. Well today, we’ve got some important information which you need to be aware of.
One of our favourite local attractions, Mijas Water Park (Parque Acuático Mijas) opens today for the new season.
Knowing that many of our guests are regular visitors to this popular water park, we thought we’d give you a few tips on how you can save a few Euros next time you and the family decide to spend the day shooting down water slides!
Although great fun, water parks such as the one in Mijas can prove to be a seriously- expensive day out, especially if you have a big family! The normal prices for a day at ‘Parque Acuático Mijas’ are as follows:
According to Einstein, “If a bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four more years of live left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
Whilst this statement may not be entirely true, studies show that millions of human beings would not survive and thousands of plant species would die out without them; there is no doubt that these fascinating creatures play a vital role in nature.
