Up up and away…

Benalmadena Cable cars is a must see attraction based in the andalucian town of Arroyo De La Miel. 

It’s the best way to see across the beautiful coast line from up above.

Not for the faint hearted as the cable car go right up to the top of the mountain so those with height phobias should be warned. 

It takes about 20-25 minutes to get up the the top and you can then ascend even higher up the winding paths to the most picturesque views inland and across the ocean.

There is plenty of photo taking opportunities for the avid photographer and a  selfie stick is a good idea to take along with you.

Once at the top as mentioned before you can explore further up the mountain. Make sure you wear sensible footwear. Flip flops are not really hiking attire!!

There is a snack bar, vending machines and restaurant at the top of the mountain however they are quite expensive as you’d expect and not really that great. You’d be better off taking your own water and a light snack.

One of the highlights of the trip is the Bird of Prey show which happens twice a day.

You can see buzzards, vultures, owls and an array of other birds.

You can see them flying and being called back, although when we went one of the vultures had decided he was off for the duration of the show and didn’t come back until long after the show had finished.

Be warned though, you’ll need Sun screen and sunhats as they show is out in the open and there’s no shelter from the daily Sun which at the time of the show is at its peak.
