Why Benahavis, Spain is the perfect travel destination

In the heart of the Malaga Province hills lies the charming little Andalucian village of Benahavis , renowned for its exquisite cuisine. This stunning mountain village is certain to delight lovers of nature and food alike, and with a wide selection of luxurious Benahavis holiday accomodations available, there is no reason why you should not make Benahavis your next travel destination.

What you can do in Benahavis, Spain

Benahavis is a haven for travellers. With the beautiful Guadalmina Gorge traversing its terrains, Benahavis provides a peaceful and soothing ambiance that is ideal if you are looking to get back in touch with nature or simply relax under the sun. Renting a lovely Benahavis holiday villa will also give you access to the village’s famous cuisine, one of the best in the region of Andalucia. With countless delicious restaurants to choose from, make sure to arrive in Benahavis with a large appetite!

And if you are feeling brave (and vigorous) enough to hike to the top of the highest mountain of the area, the dazzling sight of the historical Castle of Montemayor, a 11th century Arab ruin overlooking the beautiful coastline stretching lazily below will be well worth the aching limbs you will get from the arduous walk. And after a good night’s sleep in your Benahavis rental home, you might find it in you to keep exploring some the village and its environs’ natural wonders and thriving wildlife, either by foot or by bike. Benahavis and its surrounding area are filled with the possibility of great outdoor activities.

Golf lovers interested in trying something different (and perhaps a bit more challenging) than what they are normally accustomed to will absolutely adore the Guadalmina mountain golf course, located approximately seven kilometres away from the town centre and most of the Benahavis holiday villa.

Your holiday Benahavis accommodation will also be a short distance away from the spectacular beaches of the Costa de Sol where you will find many water sports oriented facilities and a few more golf courses to keep you entertained.

Places where you can go

Most Benahavis holiday rentals are in close proximity of San Pedro. This upbeat town rich in culture and history is celebrated for its splendid beaches. Having been awarded the European Blue Flag repetitively in honour of their superior quality, the beaches of San Pedro certainly make for a wonderful afternoon trip.

And while residing in your lovely Benahavis holiday villa, it would be quite foolish not to visit the town of Puerto Banus. There you will find a wide array of boutiques and shopping complexes which will be sure to keep you busy for a while. And if you are planning to stay in this town for more than a day, you might need to prepare yourself to party the night away; Puerto Banus is renowned for its lively nightlife!

What kind of weather you can expect

Summer temperature can rise as high as 30 degree Celsius, making the beaches of the Costa de Sol welcomed sights for travellers renting a Benahavis holiday accommodation in the summer. Winters tend to be fairly warm as well, with the average temperature being 15 degree Celsius.

How to get to Benahavis

Unfortunately, seeing as there is no direct flight from Australia to Benahavis, Australian visitors will first need to board a flight that will bring them to London Heathrow Airport, before taking another one that will bring them to Malaga Airport, an hour away from most Benahavis holiday villas.
