Currently based at El Jardin Bar, Avda Bonanza, Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmádena Costa, Malaga, the original Benalmádena Branch was founded in June 2002 as a spin off from the Costa del Sol Branch. In June 2004 the 2 Branches merged into Benalmádena and became the senior Branch in Spain and the only one on the Costa del Sol. Recent changes in Gibraltar have necessitated expanding our area of responsibility. Accordingly, we have reverted to the Branch name “Costa del Sol” as this reflects our position in Spain. We maintain close links with other Branches and organisations in Spain and Gibraltar and between us manage to provide a reliable Welfare service for ex RAF members and their dependents.
We meet at El Jardin Bar, Avenida Bonanza, Arroyo de le Miel, at 14.00 Hrs, on the 3rd Monday of each month. Please see the Event Diary for details.
