unspoilt and idyllic, lovely traditional spanish village with stunning views of the coast. Visit the budist temple (largest outside of Asia) and butterfly gardens just a short walk from the village centre, some amazing restaurants and cafe to sit and watch the world go by.

A really lovely village to walk around, a number of shops, coffee shops and restaurants. Take the lift to the church where there are great views down to the sea

Tradionally built houses, with some nice local restaurants. Nice strolling around little lanes. If you go on a Sunday, arrive after eleven in the morning as nothing much opens before this

Most people go straight past this pueblo on their way up the hill to Mijas, they're missing a more authentic less touristy Spanish experience. We like to get the bus up from the coast, have a wander round, have a coffee and then walk down past the castle to the coast again. There's usually something going on, the last time... More

Get here before the crouds to enjoy the narrow streets and tapas bars even more. It's great to wander around. And don't forget the old church at the top. Brilliant place to visit.

When I moved to Andalucia in 2012, I ended up here in Benalmádena Pueblo, and although I since moved to Fuengirola, I still have lost my heart to the little Pueblo. Of course there are bars where the tourists hang around and all that, but if you enter the old town, you´ll find the places, where the local people are... More

Although this village is only a 25 minute bus ride from Benalmadena, it is a real Spanish village. Lovely little streets, and pretty whitewashed houses. Full of local residents. There are various cafes and tapas bars. A quieter alternative to Mijas, and less commercialised.

I have visited the Pueblo, the old village up the mountain a couple of times, well worth a visit for the view alone. Very pretty with traditional streets and once you get to the view point, about a gentle 20 minute stroll from the bus stop the view is stunning. There is also a Buddhist Stupa (Temple) just a little... More
