From the 6th to the 12th October, all who visit Fuengirola are in for a fun and entertaining time! The ‘Feria del Rosario’ (named after the city’s patron saint) is the perfect opportunity to experience a true taste of Spanish culture.

Why visit Benalmadena in September (Plus Our List of Things to Do & Places to See)

Benalmadena in September

Visiting Benalmadena during the busy summer months – July & August – can be stressful. Too many people, too much traffic, too many queues, it’s too hot… stress!

However, if you’re willing to hold off on your holiday plans until September, the panorama changes… drastically!

September is probably one of the best times of year to visit Benalmadena. Although it’s still busy, kids are back at school and Spanish travellers (who usually holiday in August) are back at work. You’ll also find that flights and accommodation are considerably cheaper and the weather is still fantastic; lots of sunshine but not as stiflingly hot as July and August.


The ‘Great Festival of Legends’ of Benalmádena: Tributes to all-time Musical Greats

Next Saturday, September 3, the ‘Great Festival of Legends’ kicks off at the Benalmádena Auditorium. This cultural event will offer several ‘Tribute’ concerts throughout the month of September and up to the 11th October.

The concert series begins on the 3rd September with a tribute to Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Robbie Williams and the Bee Gees. Throughout the month we can also enjoy a program composed of great artists who will perform the best songs by musical legends such as Michael Jackson, Queen, Pink Floyd or ABBA. A highlight this year will be that many of the shows will include professional dancers to add to the spectacle.
