Reserva del Higueron


The apartment is conveniently situated for access to Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Mijas. The A7 highway is close by allowing a driving time from Malaga airport of approximately 10 minutes.

A car is not necessary;  public transport links are excellent and there is a mini tren that leaves from the hotel and takes you up and down the hill.  Up to the shops and down the the train station and beach.

If you don’t mind a walk it takes about 10/15 minutes to walk down the hill to the train station and the train runs regularly between Malaga and Fuengirola (20 minute service).  You can get the train from the airport.

From the top of the hill you can walk into Benalmadena Pueblo, it’s a nice walk, and a short taxi journey if you prefer.  Also from the top there is a regular bus service. 

Fuengirola, Benalmadena Pueblo, Arroyo de la Meil, Benalmadena Costa, Torremelinos, Mijas and Malaga are all easily accessible by public transport links and taxi’s are reasonably priced.

Beside the apartment there is a cafe at the sports club, a lovely tapas restaurant Al Rollo and a fine dining restaurant Sollo.  There is also an Hotel, Hilton Double Trees, which has a roof top swimming pool and cocktail bar, so there is no need to venture too far if you don’t want to.

The shopping parade at the top of the hill has a supermarket, pharmacy, excellent Indian Restaurant (sit in or take away), a tea shop, Spanish cafe/bar, dry cleaners etc.

If you decide to hire a car, there are many car hire companies on the coast, the company we use is

HOW TO GET THERE - FLIGHTS - You can fly direct to Malaga from most UK airports.  From Edinburgh via Ryanair, Norwegian Airlines and Jet2; Glasgow via Easyjet and Jet2 and Prestwick via Ryanair.  Depending on when you are travelling, flights from Newcastle can be quite reasonably priced particularly late June & early July before the English schools break up.


This part of Spain is protected from the northern climate by its 'Sierras' and so enjoys a fabulous climate all year round. Travel inland a little way and you have the traditional Spain, try a day out at El Chorro and swim in the freshwater lakes.

The city of Malaga is a gem with its paved streets, the famous Picasso museum, the cathedral, its many restaurants, cafés and bars. Try Malaga's oldest tapas bar 'Logüeno' (Log-wen-o) or stroll along the Alameda Principal with its many flower stalls, the colours are overwhelming. Then you can walk up the paved Calle Larios and maybe take coffee and 'churros' in the Café Central in the Plaza de la Constitución.

Head further east and you have Nerja with its famous caves, Granada and the Alhambra or go a bit further to the Sierra Nevada.

Westward, there is Marbella and Puerto Banus playground of the rich and famous.


At the heart of Benalmádena is the old white Andalusian village of Benalmadena Pueblo (this is walkable from the apartment) with its narrow streets with flowers growing everywhere, so much colour. The Plaza de España is at the heart of the Pueblo and has cafés, restaurants, craft and souvenir shops and the fountain of the young girl, the symbol of Benalmadena.

This is the real Spain as the locals go about their day-to-day business and some of the older village folk sit on a bench in the shade of the orange trees and just chat away to each other.

For the children there is Tivoli World just a bus ride away in Arroyo de la Miel and a little further on is the World famous Benalmadena Marina which has won worldwide acclaim for its architecture. The marina has many activities and restaurants.

Fuengirola is close by and easily accessible with restaurants and nightlife for all tastes, ages and budgets.  The chiringuito bars on the beach prepare fresh sardines slowly cooked over an olive wood fire and served simply with fresh lemon, olive oil and crusty bread – the true Mediterranean diet. 

Reserva del Higueron is an excellent location whatever your idea of a perfect holiday.  Sunbathing, swimming, shopping, golfing, relaxing, walking, tennis, spa days, gym, sightseeing, touring, it’s up to you, be as energetic or as chilled as you like, just enjoy.
