Nightlife

Other than “La Galeria”, Benahavís does not really have any nightlife to speak of. However, as Estepona is a mere 15 minutes away and Marbella just 20 minutes, it is worth getting a taxi to experience the nightlife in the Costa del Sol. Click here for more information on the nightlife in Estepona and Marbella.

Shopping

There are a few shops around Benahavís but if you want major supermarkets you will need to use the N-340 (the main coastal road) to find La Cañada (a large mall with supermarket) near Marbella, Carrefour (a large sueprmarket) at the entrance to Estepona and El Corte Inglés (a multi layer department store) near Puerto Banús. Closer to home there is a Mercadona in Cancelada in the Estepona direction and a Supersol in Guadalmina. However, Benahavís does contain a few small shops such as a butchers, a very well-stocked corner shop that can provide you with almost anything and a furniture shop.

Beaches

Benahavís does not have any of it´s own beaches but can enjoy a wonderful range of beaches from Marbella and Estepona.
