Benalmadena Cable Cars

17Fév

It might be winter, but here in Costa del Sol we are very fortunate, and our weather is still amazing.  

When on holiday, specially if the sun shines, there is no better plan than visiting the tourist attractions of the destination.

In the case of Costa del Sol, one of the most popular ones is the Benalmadena Cable Cars.

The Benalmadena cable car route links Benalmadena Costa with the peak of Monte Calamorro, at approximately 800 metres above sea level. This therefore is one of the highest points in Costa del Sol.

From the peak of the Calamorro you will enjoy stunning views of the coast and, if the weather allows it and it is a clear day, you might even manage to see Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar or the North of Africa.

This is a well worth trip as not many places offer such great views. In February and March the service is available daily from 11:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M, the journey lasts about 15 minutes and each cable car takes up to 4 people. 

The access to this service is very easy as the cable cars are taken just beside the Benalmadena – Arroyo de la Miel train station, which means that you can get there easily thanks to the train line that connects Fuengirola with other important resorts in Costa del Sol.    

If you are interested in experiencing it or have any doubt regarding the entry tickets please click here to visit their official website. https://www.telefericobenalmadena.com/?lang=en

Enjoy some of the most breath-taking views in Costa del Sol!

II Edition of the Gourmet route in Mijas

03Fév

As you know at Hotel Yaramar we love good food, so this week on our blog we would like to recommend you the excellent gourmet route organised by the Mijas Council.

After the great success of last year, this second edition of the gourmet route started on the 10th of January and will be on until Sunday the 10th of March.

7 well-known restaurants in Mijas Pueblo participate in it (La Fuente, Restaurante Fiesta, Mesón de Fede, Chema’s Terrace, Maguiñez, RestauranteTriana y Koko Bistro) and for a fixed price of 19 euros per person each of these restaurants offer a full menu that consists of a starter, a main dish, a dessert and some wine.

A gourmet passport will be given to those who order the gourmet menus. The passports will have to be handed in at the tourist office of Mijas or La Cala for a chance to participate in a draw.

If you love tasting new things while on holiday, you have the fortune of being currently here and you were also planning to visit Mijas, we certainly recommend you give a try to this fabulous gourmet route.

Enjoy!
