It’s been a while, a couple of years, since I went up the mountain in the cable car (Teleférico) in Benalmádena, so a visit was long overdue. The Teleférico, inaugurated in 2000, takes you from Arroyo de la Miel to the summit of Monte Calamorro, around 800 metres above sea level.
The distance is roughly 5,585 metres and the ride takes approximately fifteen minutes. At the top you get some great views and on a clear day you can see Africa. Great fun.
There are plenty of walks through the hills and you also have falconry exhibitions taking place (weather permitting of course) at the falconry and conservation centre. For those interested in plants and trees, many of these in the area are labelled.
Plenty of drinks and munchies at the top.
Current prices for just the cable car (many multiple offers available):
Adult return: €14.50 (€11.90 online)
Child (3 to 10 years) return: €11.00 (€9.50 online)
