Benahavis is a beautiful inland, whitewashed town in one of the most mountainous areas in the western Costa del Sol; as such it offers some of the most remarkable and picturesque views to be had.
The town is typical of these Moorish routes, narrow and winding back streets ending in town squares. It has its origins in Al Andalus, the Moorish kingdom, which at its height covered almost the entire of the Iberian Peninsula.
The area around Benahavis is prestigious, largely due to its proximity to the coastal resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus. Benahavis’ outlying area is home to nine golf courses and numerous restaurants, often cited as the dining room of the Costa del Sol.
Benahavis is located inland midway between the costal towns of Estepona (20 kilometres) and Marbella (20 kilometres) near to the beautiful Sierra de las Nieves yet still close to the coast.
