my brother is lucky enough to live here and we were lucky enough to go visit him aug 06.
what a beautiful place . the main part to Banalmadena is a harbour which has some fantastic boats moored there. you can go out on some of these boats for day trips. the chinese junk is one of my favourites.
At a certain harbour edge bar you can buy some old table bread to feed the hundreds of thousands of fish that literally jump out of the water to get the bread.i cant remember its name but you will find it easily by all the other people crowding around to look.
there are some fab shops to browse around, purfume, leather, jewellery, nicknaks
in the evening the place comes alive. all the restuarants are packed out with peoplewatching the world go by. you can get some absolutely fab ice cream to eat whilst strolling along.
benalmadena (pronounced ben-al mad-ina not benal madeena) is just along the coast from Feungerolla and Marbella and only 20 mins from malaga airport (which is ok but duty free shop not great)
property prices are expensive if you are looking to buy in this area...but the views are stunning.
Summary: go visit but dont tell my brother i sent you!!!!!!!!!
