The Benalmadena Cable Car offers a hiking trail 800 meters above sea level

After a 15-minute cable car ride on the slopes of Mount Calamorro, visitors reach the summit at about 800 metres above sea level. From there you can not only see the coast and the municipalities, but on clear days you can also see the African coast. There, in the middle of nature, there are not only several viewpoints from where we can appreciate fantastic views of Benalmádena and the Costa del Sol; in addition, falconry shows are offered, there are several trails of almost 3 km in length and guided tours to discover the local Mediterranean flora. During the summer there is also the possibility of enjoying the night sky through the large open-air planetarium. At the top of the Calamorro there is also a restaurant area.
