When visiting the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, why not take a trip in a cable car to the top of a mountain, where you can enjoy mountain strolls, wonderful views and a visit to the eagles.
Just above Arroyo de la Miel (River of Honey) in the town of Benalmádena Costa you can take the ride of a lifetime.
A cable car runs to the summit of the 769-metre Calamorro mountain, providing panoramic views of the coast, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Gibraltar and on clear days, even the Moroccan coastline.

The Benalmádena Cableway (Teleférico Benalmádena) offers a spectacular 15-minute trip in comfortable and modern cablecars, each with capacity for 4 people. The route runs from the Benalmádena coast to the top of Calamorro mountain, one of the most elevated enclaves of the Costa del Sol, at nearly 800 meters above sea level.

To get to the cable cars, take the Fuengirola/Malaga Renfe train to Benalmádena - Arroyo de la Miel stop - then stroll up to the cable car which is situated next to Tivoli World.
The cable car costs 13 Euros per adult and 9.80 Euros for children. (Prices subject to change).
Although the author was unlucky that day and missed the exhibition with the eagles, the video below includes views from the cable car and an interesting display with the birds.
