BENALMADENA (11 km away) is divided into a maritime part, famous for its numerous beaches, also well equipped. There is a water park, an amusement park (TIVOLI WORLD), cable cars with a magnificent view of the surroundings and a birds of prey show. The Benalmádena market takes place on Friday mornings near TIVOLI. There is also an original marina to explore and a SEALIFE aquarium. You should take a walk through LA PALOMA park, where you will discover its animals in freedom and its beautiful cactus garden. Then you have BENALMADENA PUEBLO (4.4km), a typical Andalusian village with narrow streets, facades decorated with flower pots, the church SANTA DOMINGO on a promontory with a panoramic view over the sea and the castle of COLOMARES (this castle is worthy of a fairy tale). A little further on there is a Buddhist temple, STUPA, and next to it a butterfly house (MARIPOSA).
