Selwo Marina Nights

Music under the stars...

The warm summer evenings on the Costa del Sol become a little more bearable with the fantastic evening exhibition which our friends at Selwo Marina have prepared for this summer.

As from last Saturday 16th July – and until the 31st August – visitors to this magical park will be able to enjoy a spectacular dolphin exhibition accompanied by a selection of classic and contemporary melodies. A violin and saxophone duet will play tunes that’ll have the spectators and the stars of the show – Zeus, Tonet, Rumbo, Astro, Romeo and Bravo (Selwo’s dolphin family) dancing under the stars!

The music and dolphin acrobatics will be accompanied by a specially designed show of light and colour which will fill the night sky.

The show starts at 10:30pm every evening and is priced at €20 per adult and €15 per child (aged 3 to 9 years); however, we recommend you take advantage of the great special offer available which allows you to enjoy access to the dolphin show and a meal at one of the parks fast food outlets for just €2 more per person; that’s a total of €22 for adults and €17 for children. :-)

If you’d like more information, please ask at the Sunset Beach Club leisure desk located on the 6th floor of the hotel.

Castillo de Colomares en Benalmadena

Castillo de Colomares

The ‘Castillo de Colomares’ (ColomaresCastle) in Benalmadena is one of the most interesting tourist attractions the municipality has to offer. It’s not really a castle, it’s more of a monument which was built between 1987 and 1994 by Esteban Martín MD as a tribute to Christopher Columbus and the discovery of America.

This unique monument unifies various architectural styles which had a marked effect on Spanish culture: Bizantine, Romanesque, Arabic and Gothic.

A walk around the Colomares Castle will allow you to discover various elements from the symbols of the Catholic Kings, from the three cultures present in medieval Spain (Judaism, Christianity and Islamism) and other elements from Christopher Columbus’ epic voyage.  Read More…

Benalmadena Bus route nº120

Reading through our latest reviews on Tripadvisor, I came across a very complementary comment by a guest who recently stayed with us at Sunset Beach Club.

Apart from his very kind words praising our facilities and friendly staff (thank you!), this guest also reminded me of our hotel’s fantastic location as a base to explore other areas and towns on the Costa del Sol. In particular, he made reference to the bus stop just outside the hotel and the fantastic nº120 bus! Yes, we have taxis outside the hotel, but the beauty the 120 bus is that it only costs €1.50 per trip :-) Read More…
