Places to Eat in Benalmadena?

Places to Eat in Benalmadena?

You won’t be stuck for choices when it comes to places to eat in Benalmadena, it just depends where you are in the town. If you’re hanging around the Puerto Marina area and need a bite to eat with a view, might we suggest the epic Jacks American Brasserie to please every kind of taste bud. This American style restaurant is chic and stylish inside and offers a revamped menu of classic like burgers, hotdogs and more. For all the meat lovers out there on the hunt for some juicy steak, nowhere does it better in the marina than Angus Steakhouse. With a steak on your plate and a view of the marina, how could anyone be unhappy?

If you find yourself on the beach with a grumbling stomach, there’s plenty of restaurants and café’s that line the sand waiting to feed you. For extra large groups of giggling girls, we suggest trying something new at Restaurante La Sirena. Here they serve Medit­er­ra­nean-style dishes with a Spanish flare that will tantalise your palette. However, if you’ve come to Spain specifically for the country’s famed tapas, you’ll find that at FAMA Tapas Bar. This little hole in the wall might not be modern, but they serve outstanding tapas dishes that gives you an idea of local cuisine.

As mentioned previously, everyone knows that Spain is world-renowned for it’s tapas. However, every town and city has a different take on tapas from around the country. Benalmadena and Malaga join together for the tradition of Gambas al Pil-Pil, translating to flash-fried prawns served with spices, chillies and white wine on crispy bread. Seafood is a main theme on the Southern coast of Spain, and the smell of Espeto will follow you throughout Benalmadena. Espeto refers to delicious barbecued sardines, freshly caught and ready to eat.

Where to Shop in Benalmadena?

Where to Shop in Benalmadena?

As Benalmadena is a small town, most shopping experiences are limited to souvenirs and vintage shops for an acquired taste. It’s likely that if you’re heading to Spain for a hen weekend you won’t spend much time shopping, but if you do it’s nice to know where the best places to go are. From independent stores to brands you’ll recognise, have gander at the districts to go for the shopaholics within us.

Puerto Marina Shopping

For a wander about, a leisurely lunch and handcrafted goods, Puerto Marina Shopping is the best place to enjoy while in Benalmadena. In this relatively large shopping centre you’ll find beautifully painted, handcrafted gifts that are one of a kind, as well as cafes served fresh fish if you work up a hunger. There’s also a few shops that sell necessities if you’re running low on sun cream, and even some jewellery places if you want to have a browse!

As well as the shopping centre, the marina itself is a great shopping district to stroll around, dipping in and out of different stores while having the view of expensive yachts and boats. There are an array of hidden gems dispersed in between restaurants to discover if you have a spare few hours.

Guide to Benalmadena Nightlife for Hen Weekends

As a town, Benalmadena does a damn fine job when it comes to nightlife. Comparing it to any town you find in the UK, this Spanish seaside resort has so many options when it comes to both areas and bars to visit while you’re celebrating. It’s easy to get your glad rags on and travel a mere few miles to reach areas like the 24-hour square or marina where you can spend an evening in the arms of friendly locals and welcoming venues.

The Puerto Marina

The Paza de Solymar is the best place for cheap prices and late night partying, but if you’d rather something a little more upscale with stunning views then The Puerto Marina might be a better fit. Surrounded by expensive yachts and busy restaurants, the bars in this area offer top quality drinks and great service for a tipsy last night of freedom. One of the most popular bars in this area is Kaleido Puerto Marina. Also serving food, this venue has ample seating for large groups of giggling girls and an extensive menu packed with colourful cocktails.

For a more authentic atmosphere that’s slightly less expensive, head over to the lounge-like Brezo’s bar. Covered in cream interior with comfortable seating, they serve incredible milkshakes by day and equally as good cocktails by night so you can visit both times! Another lounge style bar that prides itself on a circular bar and funky cocktails is Los Brothers, which doesn’t get as busy as most other places while still keeping the same high quality as the rest of the Marina. Alter­natively, just around the corner you can catch up on sports and get rowdy in the Wild West style Mombasa Sports and party bar which is open until late on summery weekends.

If you’re looking for some unique bars and pubs to visit and make the hen weekend in Benalmadena one to remember, there’s plenty of options for that too! At the Marina you will find the only ice bar in Benalmadena. Boal’s Ice Bar serves sub-zero temperatures inside with a nice outdoor area to enjoy your drinks without freezing! And last but by no means least, what would a hen do be without a bit of karaoke? Joy’s Disco Karaoke provides all the girls an opportunity to sing their heart out until 6am every single day of the week.

Nightclubs in Benalmadena

Late night partying is what Benalmadena does best, and you can find a surprising number of nightclubs dotted around the town and surrounding area of Costa del Sol. Sticking with the Marina area, here you’ll find Sala Caramelo that’s exclusively open on Saturdays. One thing to note is nightlife in Benalmadena (and Spain as a whole) is that venues open late and close early! Sala Caramelo starts the party at midnight and doesn’t close until 7am! If you’re looking to celebrate on any other day than Saturday, don’t fret. Forever Beach Club is the total opposite of Sal Caramelo in that the nightclub is open 24 hours a day, every day, 7 days a week.

If you want to venture outside of the Puerto Marina, there’s plenty of nightlife options all around the town too. BOA VIP Club is where you could find yourself at the weekend, enjoying entertainers and performers, smoke machines and bright lights while you dance until you drop. One of the largest clubs in Costa del Sol, this venue has 2 different rooms creating an entirely unique experience of sound, music and VIP exclusivity. Dare to adventure on the outskirts of Benalmadena altogether and you’ll be treated to Octan club, technically making it’s home in Malaga. If you’re craving live DJ sets, dancing and drink deals for the last night of freedom this is the place for you.

Plaza de Solymar

Plaza de Solymar, more frequently known as the 24-hour Square, is exactly what it says on the tin. This cubby hole of nightlife is booming from sunset to sunrise and provides the perfect place to dip in and out of bars without breaking the bank. Most famously, the square is home to the hugely popular Molly Malone’s bar. Boasting an Irish pub exterior and friendly interior, this venue is more than just Guinness on tap. You can dance until dusk, drink pink gin by the bucket and electric DJ sets inside. Right next door you’ll find the more modern Mango’s nightclub, which will welcome the girls with neon lights and a spacious dance floor to bust some moves!

For more pub vibes, you can find St Andrews pub across the way on the 24-hour square. Similar to Molly Malone’s, this venue poses as a traditional Irish golfing pub with cosy interior, screens for sports and incredible drinks deals that makes it the perfect place to start the hen night. On the opposite end of the spectrum you can find dancing and disco at Jules bar and a more modern design at Linekers just next door. And when you finish the night? Get some greasy grub just round the corner at a whole host of burger and kebabs shops open until late.
