Benahavis is one of the most affluent postcodes in Andalucia offering an abundance of Spanish character. The peaceful appearance of the village contrasts with the hustle and bustle of the rest of the district which has no less than 10 golf courses and a riding club.
The nearest beaches can be found in Marbella and Estepona which take no more than 10 minutes to reach by car. Take your pick from family-friendly beaches in San Pedro de Alcántara, happening beaches in Puerto Banús (i.e. La Sala by the Sea, Ocean Club etc) or tranquil sands to the west of Estepona.
