I've been offered some nice accommodation by the Torrequebrada Golf club (500m from beach). As I've never been to Benalmadena I was hoping someone could give me the heads up on the area.

I was a little concerned I was a too far away from a train station, the marina, nightlife etc.. lol

Thanks

Hi Gaz
I dont know that specific area well, but Benalmadena has a lot going on - if you like that sort of thing. Its not really my cup of tea as its pretty touristy and busy! But thats not to say other people dont love it!

Im sure there is a train station in Torrequebrada as well as Benalmadena ??? and I know there are lots of cliubs, bars and nightlife in both areas...although again in my opinion its very "British" ....lol!!!

I know we have people on the forum who know that area better than me so I will let them give you the benefit of their own knowledge!

Altho I dont know the area that well, I've been there a few times and I'm fairly sure that Torrquebrada and the golf course are up the other end from the Puerto/marina and the main "buzz", so a good couple of miles I'm aftraid. But I suspect Torrequebrada has its own nightlife ??? I've no idea where the train station is.

Have a look on "google earth" and that whould give you an idea of whats there and where everything is

And also if your close to the beach thats awalys a + :]

Don't you mean the trains from Torremuelle (on the Cercanias line)? I am not 100% sure but I think that may be the nearest station, though dont know how near. Think it would be a long trek to the main station in Arroyo/Benalmadena. Dont know about nightlife but as someone said, think it is far from the Marina.
