One of the activities we tend to recommend to guests who stay with us is a guided tour of Benalmadena on the sightseeing tourist bus. This is undoubtedly the best way to see all the great attractions Benalmadena has to offer its visitors.
Last week the local council announced that it had introduced a new route to the tourist bus, one that includes a visit to Benalmadena Town (the one up in the mountains) and all its cultural treats. This new itinerary includes the impressive Buddhist Temple, the Butterfly Park, the ‘Felipe Orlando’ Pre-columbine museum and the uniqueness of a typical andalusian village with its white buildings and narrow cobbled streets.
The company responsible for the tourist bus – City Sightseeing Tours – started this new service in October and will allow all holidaymakers and visitors to enjoy Benalmadena’s tourist attractions during the quieter winter months.
By adding Benalmadena Town to the tourist bus itinerary, this fun trip now encompasses all of Benalmadena’s main tourist attractions. The ‘City Sightseeing Tours’ bus – unmistakeable with its double decks and bright red colour – starts its run at the Tivoli World fun park and stops at the following attractions and tourist points: Benalmadena Marina, the main promenade (Paseo Maritimo), Arroyo de la Miel Town Centre, Benalmadena Town and all the different theme parks and tourist attractions Benalmadena has to offer.
The sightseeing bus’ new and improved itinerary offers a wide range of leisure and cultural activities which, together with the incredible choice of hotels and restaurants make Benalmadena the ideal destination for an enjoyable winter holiday.
For guests who are staying at Sunset Beach Club, the sightseeing bus actually stops just outside the hotel and at just €13 for adults and €6.50 for kids is great value for money. Don’t forget that the bus ticket you purchase is valid for 48 hours and allows you to hop on and off the bus at each of the stops.
