Learn Spanish by the warm, sparkling waters of the Mediterranean, in sun-drenched Benalmádena! This is a colourful, lively town, yet it remains small enough to offer tranquillity and a glimpse into the traditional Spanish way of life. During your Spanish course in Benalmádena, you can walk the medieval streets of Benalmádena-Pueblo (the old town), discovering sights such as Castillo de Colomares (a magnificent monument to Christopher Columbus). Take the cable car up Mount Calamarro for superb views of the Spanish countryside, Gibraltar and even Africa on clear days. Then you can head back to the coast for a leisurely dinner, or to party the night away!
