So, without further ado, let us take you on a journey throughout the Costa del Sol – we begin with the inland pueblo of Benahavis.

Welcome to Benahavis – The Dining Room of the Costa del Sol

The picturesque village of Benahavis is located only 7km inland from the sea. This village sits among what can only be described as natural mountainous beauty. The residents in this village comprise mostly of expats, who saw the value of buying a second holiday home on the Costa del Sol.

Benahavis is known as the “dining room of the Costa del Sol”, and many different ethnic restaurants can be found within short distance. It has the highest concentration of high class restaurants in the region and draws visitors by the thousands who come only to experience the cuisine.

Benahavis treats its residents to unspoiled and cultural distinction. Most find the narrow winding streets, and overall ambiance simply irresistible. It stands 500 metres above sea level, 7 kilometres inland from the Guadalmina Golf Course, and is reached by driving through the rio Guadalmina gorge up into the hills.

A 20 minute drive will take you into the heart of Marbella in one direction (East) or Estepona in the other (West). Both of these locations have their very own unique qualities as well. See for yourself why so many flock here each and every year.
