The Teleferico Benalmadena is a 15-minute cable car ride that takes you from Benalmadena Costa to the summit of Mt. Calamorro offering spectacular views of the Costa del Sol. Even those that have lived on the Costa del Sol for years are taken aback by the amazing vistas this accessible journey has to offer.
At the top of the mountain you'll find hiking trails, an equestrian show and an aviary which features scheduled shows of exotic falcons, eagles and other wildlife. This is a great way to spend two hours with the kids showing them the stunning beauty and rugged landscape of the Costa del Sol.
During the summer months, this attraction also has a planetarium attraction, which can make for a perfect warm evening beneath the Milky Way. Contact the venue directly at their details, below, for further information.

Once at the top take a break in the cafeteria or visit the bird exhibition showing off various species such as falcons, eagles and owls. Or hike on any of the 2750 meters of trails that offer various view points over the Costa del Sol. There are also a number of well marked bike trails for the mountain bike enthusiast.
