Benajarafe is, for many, one of the most beautiful coastal villages in Malaga. Located in Velez-Malaga, in the heart of the Axarquia, you can enjoy one of the best climates on the continent, with sunny summers and calm sea that allows you to enjoy a great tranquility, as well as in the village itself, with just over 3,000 inhabitants.

It is one of those pretty villages on the Costa del Sol that you should not miss the opportunity to visit on at least one occasion, either to enjoy the beach of Benajarafe or to visit some emblematic points of interest such as the Torre Moya, the largest on the coast of Malaga.

Another must-see is the old train station that remains standing and which was a stop on the Malaga - Ventas de Zafarraya journey, the last time this route was covered in 1968. Although it is a municipality largely inhabited by international tourists, the local fiestas continue to be one of its great attractions.

Benajarafe beach is a dark sandy beach which has held the Blue Flag since 2018 and the Q for Quality, forming an extensive coastline together with that of Valle Niza. It is 1.6 kilometres long and 30 metres wide, making it a perfect beach to enjoy multiple leisure and entertainment options.
