New Tourist Train to Benalmadena PuebloThose of you who have visited Benalmadena will be familiar with the small ‘hop on, hop off’ tourist trains which ferry passengers around the Marina and the central area of Arroyo de la Miel.

Thomas Cook Pullout Could Mean Holiday Flight Shortage for Irish Travellers

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Holiday flight shortage for Irish Travellers?An article in the Irish Independent last friday caught our eye. It seems that travel giant Thomas Cook plans to exit the Irish charter holiday market, a decision – which travel agents are warning – will affect consumers due to a shortage of supply in last minute holiday deals this summer.

Aer Lingus has already scheduled new flights this summer to several sunny destinations, including a flight from Shannon to Malaga; great news for many of our Sunset Beach Club guests who wont have to fly from Cork or Dublin. Expect the Irish carrier to search for further growth opportunities following the Thomas Cook announcement; hopefully with more flight options to Malaga :-) Read More…

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…

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

Making a Paella at Sunset Beach ClubOne of the most popular activities here at Sunset Beach Club is the Spanish Cooking lessons our animation team puts on for our guests every Wednesday.

The star of these cooking lessons? Spain’s most famous and popular dish: The Paella.

There are many recipes and formulas that promise the secret to the ‘Ultimate Paella’; however, the reality is that a Paella can be made with lots of different ingredients allowing the cooks creativity to shine.

If you go to Valencia (Where the paella originated) it’ll look and taste different to the paella you’ll find here on the Costa del Sol. The important thing is that they all taste amazing and make for a delicious and enjoyable meal :-) Read More…

Families will be lining the streets to catch a glimpse of the gift-bearing Kings sitting comfortably in their spectacular carriages which slowly make their way through the carefully planned routes.

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

12 Lucky Grapes on New Years EveThose of you who have been lucky enough to celebrate New Year’s Eve here in Spain will be familiar with the tradition of eating 12 ‘lucky’grapes as the clock strikes midnight. If you haven’t the faintest idea what we are talking about, be sure to read on as we explain where this bizarre tradition originated and what it actually entails.

Although many believe the tradition of eating the 12 lucky grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve originated in 1909 due to a bumper crop of white grapes in the Almeria, Murcia and Alicante regions, it appears that this might not be entirely correct. Read More…
