Benalmadena is a wonderful, and interesting place. It is a place many Europeans, especially the British retire to. The weather is warmer here, than in most parts of Europe. There are Europeans, Russians, Chinese, Africans living here. Therefore, it is very multi-national. It is also a holiday town, situated on the Costa del Sol. For about six months of the year, beach lovers from all over come to soak in the sun.
It is a town of holiday makers and retirees. So, it is very laid-back. No one is in a hurry. The locals are friendly, the place is safe. For me. it is an ideal holiday destination. It is a quiet, slow-paced and relaxing place to have a break – to get away from the strife for a while. Throughout the day you hear ring-neck doves go coo-coo coo... coo-coo coo... and sometimes seagulls calling in the night breaking the sound of silence. Life is simple, and very affordable.
In the summer months, Banalmadena is very colourful. Trees bear fruits, and flowers bloom flooding the town with a host of colours. Very nice indeed.
