RUNNING until September 15, the Benalmadena Council has come to an arrangement with a number of hotels and leisure parks to offer a number of free options for those under 12.

A total of 15 local hotels will offer free beds to children if booked to stay with their parents (subject to availability), some restaurants will offer free soft drinks to children and a number of leisure parks will give free admission.

The local attractions taking part are Tivoli World, Selwo-Marina, Teleférico Benalmadena, Castillo de Colomares, Sea-Life, City Sightseeing Bus, Costasol Cruceros, and Mariposario de Benalmadena.

Each will allow two children to enter free of charge if accompanying a parent, except Selwo Marina and Teleférico de Benalmadena where one child is free for each accompanying parent.
