Its lands are crossed by the Guadalmina, Guadaiza and Guadalmanza rivers and enjoy spectacular views of the Coast, Gibraltar and North Africa.
The beautiful surroundings with mountains, river valleys and woods combined with its low density and its Mediterranean climate has led Benahavís to become the most sought-after area, particularly among foreigners who found this quaint village and ambience irresistible and represent nearly 50% of the inhabitants.
The charming village of Benahavís with its narrow and winding back streets ending in sunny squares with charming fountains was founded by the Arabs under the protection of a 10th Century fortress that has remained incredibly unspoiled creating a perfect combination of tradition and modernity.
Known as the gastronomic corner of Andalucía for the quality of its culinary offer with the highest concentration of first class restaurants, where you can taste typical Spanish dishes such as wild boar and venison cooked traditionally. We can highlight the traditional Restaurant Rufino serving local traditional cuisine at reasonable prices, the Restaurante La Escalera de Manolo and its beautiful terrace, Los Amigos with an open flame grill or El Cordero, with the only wood burning oven in Benahavís. The Hills Café is the secret spot in Benahavís, offering a light casual menu with the stunning sea views.
The flea market is one of the most famous markets in the area for both tourists and locals, due to the spectacular scenery in which it is located, set in the hills next to the Benahavís gorge that runs alongside the market ground.
Benahavís is, therefore, a paradise for lovers of golf, nature and good gastronomy, ideal for exploring it by hiking and enjoying an unparalleled landscape that provides relaxation for the mind and an exaltation of the senses.
