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.
We recently published a blog post which detailed some of the amazing walking and hiking routes in Benalmadena, and how the local council has invested heavily in improving these routes offering winter visitors and nature lovers a wonderful activity during their holiday.
In a new effort to promote Benalmadena as a unique and value-for-money destination to travellers searching for some winter sun, the Council – through its Tourism department – has recently come to an agreement with local tourism businesses to offer visitors special activities packages providing rest and relaxation.
According to the Tourism Councillor, Adolfo Fernández, one of the first packages to be made available will be the ‘Relax Tour’ which includes a boat trip; a guided bus tour of Benalmádena and the possibility to enjoy a thermal spa session.
The ‘Relax Tour’ Package will be available thanks to the collaboration of three local companies: Costasol Cruceros, Bus City Sightseeing and Renova Termal. For just €20, you’ll be able to enjoy the following:
- A boat trip along the BenalmadenaCoast to Fuengirola and back.
- A special ticket which will allow you to hop on and off the Benalmadena Sightseeing Tour Bus valid for 48 hours.
- A 90 minute thermal spa circuit at SPA Sensara with champagne, tea, sweets and fruit.
This is a fabulous offer you wont want to miss. So where can we buy tickets for the ‘Relax Tour’? Well, the full details have yet to be disclosed but rest assured, we’ll be sure to update this post as soon as we know more.
