Originally a sleepy Andalusian fishing village with beautiful white washed houses, Benalmadena has developed into a lively and animated town which retains its old charm and character.
The town is small enough to provide a peaceful and secure environment, while large enough to offer good shops, hotels and restaurants, a large park and a modern sports centre. Benalmadena offers a wide range of amenities for all ages, such as an amusement park, a water park, an outdoor cinema, a shopping centre, a casino, 18 hole golf greens and the popular Puerto Marina de Benalmadena, with 978 mooring slips, a sailing school, an aquarium and a diving school. It has become one of the favorite meeting places for young people for its dazzling nightlife.
The geographical situation of Benalmadena enables the students to organize cultural excursions to the most important cities of Andalucia and to Morocco, only a short one hour ferry trip away.
Situated between two seas and two continents, Andalucia is the largest of Spain\’s natural regions and the one with the highest population. The region is wide and richly varied, including the Sierra Morena, the Guadalquivir Valley and the Betica Ranges. The climate, as varied as its geographical features, is Mediterranean, with mild winters and dry summers.
The millenarian history of Andalusia has produced an inmense artistic legacy. The Alhambra in Granada, the Mosque in Cordoba or the Giralda and the historic quarter of Seville are Humanity\’s monumental landmarks. However in the vast majority of its cities and towns we can find representations of the finest moments of the Andalusian artistic life throughout time.
Malaga is the smallest of the Andalusian provinces with approx. 600.000 inhabitants. It has a privileged place at the mouth of the Guadalmedina river, on the Mediterranean coast.
