Puerto Marina, Benalmadena Costa:

Puerto Marina is one of the main attractions of Benalmadena Costa. In an ideal location, you're just a few minutes' walk away from the marina so that you can enjoy it without having the noise and bustle when you'd rather relax.

At the marina there is a huge selection of bars and restaurants, English-style or Spanish, even an excellent Greek restaurant and of course, some excellent fish restaurants. Enjoy a real Spanish paella with a glass of wine!

For family holidays there is the Sea Life Centre and often there are also huge trampolines which are great fun for children!

You can take a boat trip around the marina, to Fuengirola or to Malaga. You can take a trip to watch for dolphins or, for the more adventurous, some deep sea sport fishing.

Local attractions:

Benalmadena Costa is an ideal location for a variety of entertainment. You will easily be able to visit historic sites such as the Alhambra in Granada and the town of Ronda. You can visit the very typical and attractive village of Mijas, or go to Gibraltar for the day. If you don't have a car, don't worry!! Coach trips are easily available locally.

In the more immediate local area you can visit the local Aquapark or Crocodile Park at Torremolinos, Selwo Marina in Benalmadena, Sea Life Centre on the Puerto Marina and Tivoli World Amusement Park in Arroyo de la Miel. There is a cable car near Tivoli World to take you into the mountains.

Local markets are interesting, and shops, restaurants, bars and beach are all within easy walking distance.

Car hire is not necessary at Artemarina!!

Local beaches:

Artemarina is in an excellent location to enjoy the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. The nearest beach is just 2 minutes walk from the apartments. The sand slopes gently into the sea and so great for swimmers of all levels.

The promenade connects up the Castillo de Bil Bil right along to Torremolinos, passing through Puerto Marina and La Carihuela. There are some excellent local bars and chiringuitos to stop at whilst you stroll along enjoying the sunshine and wonderful sea views!

Ideal in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! We loved our stay at Artemarina. We had the 1 bedroom apartment called Sorolla which was great. Lovely big patio area where we put the sunbeds and had the sun all day. In the evenings we enjoyed a stroll round the marina. Some nice restaurants and a good selection. The apartment was super clean and had everything we wanted. Excellent service throughout.

Comfortable, clean and good position apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and well maintained just as described. Good communication with the owner everything explained in easy to understand instructions.

Excellent position, 2 minute walk from beach, marina and restaurants but very quiet.

I would recommend this apartment.

A great base for a holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 12.30pm and the apartment was ready for us even though check in was for 4pm. The apartment was lovely, bright, clean and in a lovely location.

After a short rest we decided to hit the beach and were more then surprised that it was a stroll……I mean a slow slow stroll of less than 2 minutes to the beach. You cannot get a better location than that.

Hiring of two beach chairs was very good value at €9 for the day, and of course this included the sun shade.

We would go to the beach at 10am, just bringing enough money for the beds and lunch, there are restaurants within a 1 minute walk form where we were on the beach.

In the evening after returning to the apartments we would sit out in the court yard sipping wine and chatting and the other guests were lovely people. The apartments are so secure and quite it’s hard to believe they are so close to the Port and Beach but they are and you will have an amazing base for your holiday if you stay here for your holidays.

Fabulous position!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned after ten lovely days in 'Picasso' (Artemarina apartments).

A very quiet complex but only minutes on foot from the marina and beach.

All apartments were different but we liked the large patio area and space in ours. It was spotlessly clean and we found it to be very private (although two other apartments had doors leading on to it). This was no problem as they each had their own balcony.

We enjoyed the Chinese restaurant overlooking the marina and also various others in Torremolinos (an easy walk along the prom) and towards Fuengirola (also on the prom). The only one that was disappointing was El Fano on the marina. We found the food expensive for what it was and the staff unfriendly.

Great bus and train services to nearby resorts.

Would recommend this apartment to anyone and would hope to return in the future. Owner was very helpful and Larraine the head cleaner very friendly.

No pool but not necessary as so close to beach.

Excellent Vacation - Artemarina Appartments

  • 5 of 5

This was booked and paid for by email after a recommendation from a family relative, and really could not have been easier or more friendly. I must recommend 'Jennifer' as being totally professional and efficient in all correspondence.

The location of the apartment was great, literally 2 mins from the promenade and harbour/marina, depending on either turning left or right! Although only 2 mins away, you are sufficeintly away from the noise, lights and crowds of people to enjoy moments of relaxtion and quietness.

On arrival the Apartments was located behind a combination door, with the keys again held behind a secure lock/safe, so no waiting for any keys or assistance, just arrive, collect keys and unpack.

The Apartments are located on a quiet road and behind a walled and gated exterior, on entering, you are met by some open and private terraces which are clean, tidy and arranged pleasingly, to the left is the laundry and BBQ area, all impeccably clean.

I stayed in the 'Juan Gris' apartment, which was on the first floor. The door was sturdy and well built, with a bright interior. The kitchenette was well stocked, with both dishclothes, washing up liquid and scourer (Wow!) so no wasting euros on items which you only use the once! The bed was fresh and all linen was clean and soft to touch, and again the toilet had both paper and hand soap!!

I did meet Larraine in passing (Apartment HouseLady), but otherwise you are very much left to your own devices, but help is at hand from a very informative folder in the apartment, filled with useful information and advice.

I also must mention, that everything provided was in good working order, including channels to view on satellite, which was useful at times whilst waiting for others!

The week was terrific, with great weather, but made all the better knowing that the accommodation was perfect including the location, so I hastily recommend the Artemarina Apartments in Benalmadena as a great choice.

Costa del sol
Car: not necessary

Benalmadena Costa is an excellent location for a family holiday or golf breaks on the Costa del Sol! We are an easy drive from Malaga Costa Del Sol Airport also known as Pablo Ruiz Picasso Airport.

Just 2 minutes from the apartments, you can walk to Puerto Marina, visit the bars & restaurants and the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. See the mountains of the Sierra Nevada whilst swimming in the sea!

You will be in an ideal location to visit the Alhambra in Granada and beautiful local towns such as Mijas and Ronda. Don't miss a visit to Malaga to visit the Picasso Museum, and a chance to sample tapas and Malaga Dulce vino!

Within an easy walking distance are local shops, restaurants and many tourist facilities. Visit Sea Life Centre in Benalmadena, Selwo Marina, Tivoli World, or visit nearby Torremolinos for the Aqua Park and Crocodile Park.

For golfers there is the 'Costa del Golf' - to name a few nearby clubs: Torrequebrada Golf; Valderrama Golf, Benalmadena Golf; Mijas.

Golf: There are over 50 golf courses along the Costa del Sol. A few of the nearest to Los Pintores Apartments would be Benalmadena Golf, Torrequebrada Golf, Mijas Golf, Valderrama Golf Club, La Cala, La Reserva de Sotogrande - the list is long!

This area of the Costa del Sol is rightly often called the 'Costa del Golf' !

The area is also a perfect location to bring the family. Whilst the golfers are away, there is plenty to keep the family occupied!

I can arrange golf transport and tee discounts.

Ski: Benalmadena Costa is ideally situated for those wanting a winter break of sunshine and beach, but also a trip to the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada is only about an hour and a half away by car and the skiing is fantastic. Enjoy the relaxing sunny beaches one day and the excitement of the ski slopes the next!
