About Margaret Martin

Originally lived in London and moved to Essex in 2009

Margaret Martin purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Margaret Martin chose Benalmádena

We have always loved this coast of Spain since first visiting in 1974 with it's easy access for transport and only a 15-20 minute drive to the airport. A variety of restaurants be it on a budget or al a carte something for everyone.

The pool is one of the best in the area as well as the well tended gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

Everything is on the doorstep so to speak enjoy a quiet holiday lazing around the large pool or sitting in the gardens with the pool bar for your drinks or snacks. Or if you prefer travelling about public transport goes right past the apartment or the metro a 15 minute walk into Arroya. Got a car the motorway is not far away.

The Costa del Sol region

Much of the proof of Benalmadena's ancient history has been carried into modern times through the remains of the three watchtowers still evident along jutting rocks along the coastline. Both the Phoenicians and the Romans used these towers in their day.

Arroyo de la Miel still displays the remains of a Roman archway, which leads the way into the important building called La Tribuna. During the time of the Arabic rule, the town was named "Ben Almedana" meaning sons of the mines. Until the time of its destruction, the Castle of Benalmadena was a great defence fortification against intruders.


Nearest beach: Playa Santa Anna 600 m


How to get there

Fly to Malaga airport

A taxi to Minerva takes about 15-20 minutes and costs about 25 euros

Public transport is cheap in Spain and there is a train that runs from Malaga along the coast, from the airport you would need to get the train to Arroya then either take a taxi for approx. 5 euros (there is a taxi rank outside the station) or it is a 15min walk to the apartment.

There are plenty of car hire companies at the airport but you would be advised to book online.


Nearest airport: Malaga International 30 km.

Nearest railway: Arroyo de la Miel 3 km.

Further Details:


Arroyo de la Miel Tree lined avenues, shops, banks, tapas bars and businesses away from the tourist area, this is part of the real Spain where the locals live and work. Some of the residential streets slipping off the main thoroughfare are quite beautiful with magnificent floral displays.

Paloma Park A beautiful landscaped park 3 to 4 minutes walk from the Minerva Jupiter apartments with a large lake, various animal enclosures and aviaries .

Tivoli World Theme park in Arroyo. Loads of rides and entertainment for all ages, in the summer months this opens in the evening and carries on until about 2 or 3am.

Arroyo cable car Not to be missed with fantastic views of the Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola coastline and with donkey rides at the top.

Arroyo Market Every Friday morning next to Tivoli World. Go get a bargain.

Water parks There are two water parks nearby one in Torremolinos and one at Fuengirola. Great fun for all.

Rail Services There is an excellent inexpensive rail service along the coast between Malaga and Fuengirola.

Benalmadena Marina Definitely worth a visit. This beautiful marina (twice voted the best in the world) has both small and large boats to see while you stroll around the harbour. There are also many excellent bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal and take in the views.

Gibraltar Regular bus trips from the Minerva apartments take about 90 minutes. Excellent duty free shopping, much cheaper than the airport. A guided mini bus tour of the rock is highly recommended.

Sealife Aquarium Located next to Benalmadena Marina, here you can discover the fascinating world of the shark and tropical seas, also hand feed the manta rays.
