Its average rainfall per year is 610mm and has an average yearly temperature of 18 degress. It has a population of 65,965 inhabitants.

Benalmadena Pueblo is situated in the foothills of the mountains and about 5km from the coast. Most areas of this village offer breath taking views of the Mediterranean from Fuengirola to Malaga. The village attracts many day visitors as it has managed to keep its traditional Spanish village look with white washed walls, narrow flower filled cobbled streets and small plazas (squares) where traditional Spanish café bars reside. Many visitors enjoy the tranquillity of the village taken in a real taste of Spanish life whilst enjoying local cuisine and tapas. Only a few minutes from the village is the Stupa (the largest Buddhist temple outside Asia), one of Europes largest butterfly parks and the mirador, offering some of the most spectacular views of the coast.
Arroyo de la Miel is a small but modern town that lies between the village and the coast and is the central point for Benalmadena's local and foreign expat community to dine, be entertained and shop. It is also home to Benalmadenas train station that links the resort to Fuengirola and Malaga via the airport. The bus service is similar to that of the village with a few additional routes that go to the urbanisations along the Benalmadena coast. This has made Arroyo de la Miel a popular commuter town. Here you will also find Tivoli World theme park, the cable car which runs to the top of the mountain and Selwo Marina, one of a handful of places in Spain where you can swim with dolphins. You will also find the famous Paloma Park with its native rabbits, peacocks and chickens and the lake, which makes this a great day out for children and adults alike. There is also an auditorium where musical events are held.
