A Walk Around Benalmadena

When I was in Malaga in April 2017 with our Gary, we decided to take the train down to Benalmadena for a walk along the Prom. The rail track runs around one mile inland from the coast. Not a problem when walking down hill, but I though it might be more of an issue walking back up hill to the station when it was hotter in the afternoon, and after eating lunch.

The Barbie Museum is quite close to Benalmadena Station. Unfortunately, it was closed that day.

We had a wander through Benalmadena Market, where Gary bought a shirt for 8 Euro.

Next, it was stroll through Parque de la Paloma, where the blossom trees were in full bloom.

There were several chickens and cockerels roaming around the park.

There was zebra sculpture on the way down to the pond.

At a roundabout close to the Prom, was a large sculpture.

I liked the octopus mosaic on the Prom.

It was a sunny day, so I was on the lookout for a restaurant to sit in the shade. We were looking for a restaurant offering a Menu del Dia, which offers a three course set menu, often for around 10 Euro. We stopped at La Cabana, the first restaurant that we spotted with a set menu. It was a good choice, as we enjoyed our lunch there.

We decided to head for a walk around Benalmadena Marina before heading back to Malaga.

There’s a Sealife in Benalmadena Marina.

We reckoned that El Pinillo Station was closer, as opposed to walking back to Benalmadena Station. As predicted it was a long hot hike up the hill.

We both enjoyed our walk around Benalmadena.
