Trips from Benalmadena to Fuengirola included in the “Relax Tour” package

Benalmadena has always been known as a sun and sea destination, attracting visitors from all over Europe in the warmer high season months.

During the quieter winter period, demand and interest for the resort suffers an important drop. The winter months – although offering the warmest and sunniest weather in continental Europe – do not provide the ideal conditions for your typical beach holiday.

That being said, Benalmadena does provide fantastic activities and attractions for visitors looking to enjoy Spanish culture and explore the wonders of our beautiful coastline. The sun still shines and, whilst you may not be able to swim in the sea, day time temperatures in the 18ºC to 22ºC range make for enjoyable and relaxing breaks. Read More…

playing darts at sunset beach club

A game of Darts

1)      First of all, get those bags unpacked and head straight down to our fantastic landscaped pool area. Hopefully the sun will be shining – we do have over 300 days of sunshine a year – and you can enjoy a quiet drink whilst soaking up some of our Mediterranean sun. Feeling relaxed? Good….now its time to join in some fun activities. Our in house entertainment team organise a wide range of activities over the winter months: Exercise classes, petanca, darts, bingo, bridge; you can even learn how to make a traditional Spanish paella at one of our cooking lessons!

2)      Game of Golf or some pampering at our “Thalgo” beauty salon? Decisions, decisions…….. If you choose to play golf, just head up to our Golf and Leisure desk on the 6th floor and they will take care of everything for you. You’ve got a choice of the top courses on the Coast to choose from and you can purchase tee times at discounted rates. If a little pampering is more to your liking, you can indulge in some fantastic treatments in our onsite beauty salon. Marine Algae envelopment for anyone? Read More…
