Benalmádena Marina is getting ready to host a very special gastronomic event… the Food Truck Experience. It’s the third time this unique culinary experience – which is having great success in other towns and cities – is celebrated here.
If you enjoy a warm and hearty casserole during these cooler winter days (well, cooler by Costa del Sol standards) then we highly recommend you take a quick trip down to Fuengirola for their annual ‘Cazuela de la Abuela’ (Grandma’s Casserole) event which starts this weekend.
From the 8th March to the 24th March, locals and visitors to Fuengirola will be able to sample tasty traditional Mediterranean casserole dishes – including yummy ‘lentejas’ and ‘callos’- just like the local’s Grandmas used to make (or still do!). Continue Reading →

It’s just over 5 years since we first asked our Sunset Beach Club Facebook fans what restaurants they could recommend in Benalmadena. We wrote a blog post with their answers which over the years has been viewed by thousands of people; however, we felt it needed updating…
So a couple of weeks ago we asked our fans the same question and we’ve included their answers in the blog post below. As you can see, we had a great response. We hope it’ll serve as a great guide for anyone thinking of staying at Sunset Beach Club – or any other Benalmadena hotel – in the future.
The first 12 restaurants are listed in order of popularity (number of people who recommended them).The rest of the restaurants on the list (13 to 41) were recommended at least once.
Here goes… our list of 41 recommended restaurants in Benalmádena (and nearby areas): Continue Reading →
Summer is upon us and it looks like we’re in for a hot one! So we thought we’d put together a list of refreshing summer drinks to help ward off the heat and keep cool.
Many of these are alcoholic but it’s easy to make them into non-alcoholic versions. You’ll recognise a few of but we’re sure there are some you’ve never heard of and may even seem a little strange… we recommend you try them all; you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
For those of you who like to try out new drinks at home or would like to impress friends when you get home from your hols, we’ve included a list of ingredients and instructions on how to prepare each of these delicious summer drinks. Cheers! Continue Reading →
The beauty of our self-catering apartments is that you always have the choice to stay in and eat lunch or dinner on the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean (if you have a sea view, if not the mountains will have to do :-)).
Yes, our Oasis Restaurant is located nearby – on the 1st floor – but sometimes you don’t feel like going to all the trouble of dressing up to eat in the restaurant; you’d rather just stay in your shorts or bikini and relax on your balcony. Continue Reading →
