Top Benahavis Hotels
Gran Hotel Benahavis
Benahavis enjoys the same golden sunshine as any other resort on the Costa del Sol, with temperatures averaging at between 23 and 29° Celsius from May until August. With so much to do outside, make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen on your holidays to Benahavis!
Benahavis is built into the side of the ruggedly hilly and mountainous landscape, and as such winding roads and narrow lanes cover the area. Traversing Benahavis can be great exercise, but isn’t too tricky for those a little less active.
Things To Do on Benahavis Holidays
Benahavis is the undisputed hotspot for golfing in the entirety of the Costa del Sol. Alternatively, if you like your entertainment a little more exciting, you can take a ride around the rugged hills and mountains nearby on a quadbike or head down to the nearby beaches to work on that tan! For a day out where you can really sample an authentic taste for life in Spain then head to Ronda, which is a short drive inland from Benahavis.
Benahavis retains much of its local feel and traditional Spanish heritage. Whilst there is much development happening across the resort, holidays to Benahavis have a really relaxed, easy going Mediterranean atmosphere.
Life in Benahavis is much more relaxed than other resorts on the Costa del Sol, and as such the nightlife is more subdued. The local dining is outstanding, with many delicacies and regional specialties on offer such as salt baked fish and suckling pig. The views from many of the restaurants that dot the landscape offer breathtaking views of the surrounding hillside, perfect for a romantic evening.
For a night out that you won't forget in a hurry, head to nearby Marbella and experience some of the best nightlife there is in Spain, not mention spotting celebrities and their yachts at the marina. It's also worth while to make the short trip to Estepona for a night out.
