The Benalmadena Cable Cars!

Hanging in the air? Overseeing the coastline?  An exciting excursion? 

A view from the Benalmadena 'Teleférico' 
If you are not afraid of heights, head for the cable cars of Benalmadena!

'Flying over' the A7 Costa del Sol motorway - there's hardly a tourist who has never seen them. 

You find the start by leaving the motorway at Exit 222 (Benalmadena-Arroyo de la Miel). 

From the modern departure station to the summit, it is a 3 KM 'flight' that takes 15 minutes. During the first minutes you will start to oversee the whole of Benalmadena, followed by views of the whole of the Malaga coastline and its unique landscape. 

The route ends at the recreational area at the Calamorro Mountain, 769 meters or 2523 ft above sea level. 

The return prices are around 13 Euro for an adult, and 10 Euro for a child. 

The first car leaves at 11:00 AM, every day. In the winter the hours runs until 18:00 but as the days get longer, so do the openings hours… in the midst of summer you can go up to midnight!

What to do at the summit?

At this top of the Calamorro Mountain there is a recreational area: a net of trails and rest areas, viewpoints, paragliding launch area, a falconry show, a dressage show, an astronomical observation area and even a nightlife and restaurant area! 

So you can easily turn it into a half or full day excursion. 

As part of our team lives in Benalmadena, we are proud of it!
