Back in the early 1970’s the Costa del Sol became a hugely popular area leading the way for what became known as package holidays. One of the first areas to really grow as a result of this was Benalmadena.

Benalmadena is about 15 minutes from Malaga International airport and is located just off of the main A7 motorway, although in the older days of its popularity you could only access via the N340 coast road. Thankfully the new infrastructure means that the coast road is now just a access road for the hotels and restaurants, as opposed to the main thoroughfare for the Costa del Sol.

With the area becoming one of the most booked places for holidays in Europe, naturally it led to a surge in people buying property as a holiday home or as a retirement residence.

These days Benalmadena is a thriving community of different nationalities enjoying the incredible weather and the fabulous amenities the area has to offer. It is split into two distinct areas, Benalmadena Pueblo and Benalmadena Costa.

The pueblo site way above the Costa and has magnificent views across the Mediterranean. The Costa is where you will find the majority of bars, clubs, shops and a long stretch of beach.

As locksmiths we have been helping home owners and holidaymakers alike with all types of services.

We can assist anyone that purchases a property by replacing locks, but we can also advise on security for the ongoing safety of personal possessions in the property. Types of work undertaken include rejas, scissor gates and grilles and various security locks.

With so many hotels in the area as well as private holiday homes, we have helped open countless safes where keys have been lost or locks ceased up.

Of course, during the summer months our team can often be called out numerous times a day to help people that have locked themselves out of their property or lost their keys. We offer a 24 hour emergency locksmith service, which is why we are the first company people turn to when they need help.

If you need any help with locks or even advice on the best types of home security for your property in Benalmadena, please get in touch and we would be delighted to help you.
