12 things to do at christmas in BenalmadenaAlthough not the high season here on the Costa del Sol, Christmas time offers lots of interesting things to keep the whole family entertained.

Our guests often ask us for recommendations on things to do at this time of year so we’ve decided to put together this list which includes activities and specific places you can visit during the holidays. Although the title of this post specifically states Benalmadena, you’ll find that out list wanders a little further down the Coast; that being said, all of these places are well connected by public transport. If you’re planning on visiting the Coast this Christmas I’m sure you’ll find something of interest on the list. Here goes…

#1 Visit one of the many tradition Christmas Markets on the Coast . You’ve got two nice markets here in Benalmadena but a trip to Malaga’s city centre is also highly recommended as they too have a popular market.

#2 Selwo Marina is open form the 22nd December 2012 to the 6th January 2013 and offers a great day out for all the family. With a spectacular Dolphin show and the only Penguinarium in Andalucia, it’s definitely one to put on your list.

#3 Time to head in to Málaga city centre and see the impressive Christmas light display. You can get the train from Arroyo de la Miel straight into the centre of Málaga; easy and cheap! Well worth a visit! Read More…

If you’ve been to Sunset Beach Club in the high season summer months you’ll know we put on some great shows in our Moonlight Theatre.

At least two of the weekly shows are performed by our talented animation team! Not only do they perform in the shows but they are also responsible for all the choreography, costumes, decoration… absolutely everything!

As you can probably imagine,putting  each of these shows together requires an enormous amount of work and effort. The animation team spend hours and hours rehearsing and perfecting their shows to ensure that our guests get to see top class performance – judging by the incredible feedback we get, the team have done a great job :-)

Here´s a short video clip we filmed as the animation team prepared for this summers hit tribute musical: Dirty Dancing.
