The bus service is similar to that of the village with a few additional routes that go to the urbanisations along the Benalmadena coast. This has made Arroyo de la Miel a popular commuter town. Here you will also find Tivoli World theme park, the cable car which runs to the top of the mountain and Selwo Marina, one of a handful of places in Spain where you can swim with dolphins.
