Benahavis is a very suitable destination for Golf lovers. This is due to the large number of golf courses around the destination. In total are situated relatively close up to 9 golf courses, among which are outstanding Los Arqueros Golf Country Club, El Higueral Golf Club or Marbella Club Golf Resort.
In the village you can also enjoy good restaurants, of which we can recommend the restaurant Amanhavis, the restaurant Chico, La Torre, Amigos and Los Abanicos, among many others.
It is worth mention that Benahavis like many other towns of Andalusia has an Arab past and even today remain ruins of that time such as the tenth century Castillo Montemayor, with stunning views of the Costa del Sol. Also from the Muslim period still stand five defensive towers: Campanillas, Daldín, Esteril, Leoneras or Tramores.
Of course it is highly recommended travelling to other nearby places during your holidays as coming to the Costa del Sol and not enjoying a day at the beach or a walk through the beautiful coastal cities is almost a sin. We therefore strongly advise visiting municipalities like Marbella, Estepona, Fuengirola and Benalmadena.ith us a private and direct transfer from Malaga airport to Benahavis.
