Benalmadena Cable Cars


Would you like to do something different during your holiday at Hotel Angela and at the same time enjoy some wonderful views?Benalmadena Cable Cars - Hotel Ángela Fuengirola

If this is the case the Benalmadena cable cars, one of the most popular attractions on Costa del Sol, might be perfect for you.

The cable car route links Benalmadena Costa with the peak of Monte Calamorro, at approximately 800 metres above sea level, being this one of the highest points on Costa del Sol.

From the peak of the Calamorro you will enjoy breathtaking 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.  While you are up there you will also have the chance to see some falconry exhibitions or do some hiking.

This is a well worth it trip as not many places offer such great views. In September the service is available daily from 11:00 A.M to 7:00 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 towns on Costa del Sol.

If you are interested in having a cable car trip, please ask in reception as we will be able to offer you a better price than if you buy your tickets there.

Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, recommends you to enjoy Costa del Sol from the heights. We are sure you will make the most of the experience and if you fancy, please share it with us on our Facebook page.

Fair of Mijas 2013


A few weeks ago we told you about Mijas and its popular Tapas Route. Well, this beautiful white village once more is the topic of this week’s blog entry as its fair is about to start.

This 2013 from the 5th till the 9th of September Mijas celebrates its annual fair in honour of its patron saint, Virgen de la Peña.

During these special 5 days there will be many activities in the village like concerts, a flamenco festival, a parade for children, fashion shows or the now traditional beauty contest “Miss Mijas 2013”.

The 8th of September is the most important day in Mijas as it is the day of the Patron Saint and therefore the Virgin is taken out on a parade through the main streets of Mijas from 21:30 P.M. If you have never visited Mijas or you have have never seen a typical Spanish religious parade, Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, recommends you not to miss the opportunity to visit Mijas this Sunday, we are sure you will love the experience.

As we explained in the previous post about Mijas getting there is very easy as there is an excellent bus service from Fuengirola bus station to Mijas with buses running every 25 minutes.

Another way to get there could be by car taking the Mijas – Fuengirola A-387 road or by taxi available by our hotel entrance.

Anyway, if you have any doubt about how to get there you can always ask at our reception desk and our team will kindly help you.

Enjoy the fair!
