To many Andalusians, native and expatriate alike, Benahavis is synonymous with food. It has the highest concentration of high class restaurants in the region and draws visitors by the thousand who eats simply to savor the cuisine. It also has an extremely high percentage of resident expatriates who have found their situation and ambience irresistible.

In spite of this, the village itself has remained remarkably unspoiled, with winding narrow streets ill-suited to the motor car, and a picturesqueness which almost makes it seem like a specially-created film set. Today, Benahavis is seldom quiet during the tourist season, but the greatest problems are finding a place to park, and choosing a restaurant. Even the old stone Arab walls around the town hall have been converted into one. A remarkable feature of the village is The Village. Almost a village within a village, The Village was the brainchild of the British sculptor, David Marshall, whose gallery is one of its main features. Though largely a recent creation, determined efforts have been made to make this enclave even more Andalusian than Benahavis itself, with marble fountains, antiques and old-fashioned doors and grilles. There are 7 fantastic golf courses and clubs in Benahavis for all abilities and closer to the coast there is a fabulous new residential area with modern contemporary apartments and villas. But its restaurants are its glory, and it celebrates the fact by describing itself on the road signs that guide you to the gastronomic corner of Andalucía. If you plan to go there, breakfast lightly!
