Torremolinos

The seaside resort of Torremolinos is one of the best-known resorts in southern Spain, and although it hasn’t always had the best image, thankfully in the last few years it has outgrown its tacky image and evolved into a mature and exciting resort.

Situated just 7 kilometres from the city of Malaga and its international airport, it neighbours the
attractive resort of Benalmadena.

History
The area dates back to prehistoric times, with human skulls and evidence of bronze age inhabitation being found in limestone caves in the
mountains that backdrop the town.

As a town Torremolinos first became popular in 1498 when the Catholic Kings and their troops stopped here during the siege of Malaga. The
original name was Molinos del Torre (The Tower Mills). The town later evolved as a busy fishing port and still to this day there is a small fishing industry.

About town
The town has a happy, fun atmosphere and appeals to both young and old visitors. There are an abundance of shops and boutiques, and the
best place to head is the main pedestrianised street of Calle San Miguel, where shops line up to sell you goods of all kinds.

The town is also awash with colour in the summer, with over a thousand species of trees and flowers being planted in and around the towns
streets, plazas and parks.

The old fishing district of El Bajondillo is found at the end of Calle San Miguel, at the bottom of a steep flight of stairs, here you will find some excellent seafood restaurants, souvenir shops and at the bottom is the beach of El Bajondillo.

The seafront promenade of Torremolinos stretches all the way to Benalmadena Marina and makes for a pleasant evening stroll, where you pass the old fishing village of La Carihuela.

There is a lesser known area in Torremolinos called El Calvario, which is located to the north of the main road, this is a quieter urban zone, where there are some cute traditional bars where you can mix with the locals and get away from the main crowds.

Beaches
Torremolinos boasts six beaches within its municipality and all have golden, clean sands and lots of facilities, including restaurants and
water sports. The 7 kilometre promenade that backs the beaches is perfect for an evening stroll taking you through the quaint fishing village of La Carihuela on to the marina at Benalmadena.

Places to visit
There are some interesting art galleries and museums in Torremolinos itself, but the real beauty of the town is its close proximity to
the capital city of Malaga, where you can enjoy a wide assortment of cultural attractions, including the Picasso Museum and Alcazabar Fortress.

The town is well place to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol and inland region, including the towns of Fuengirola, Marbella and Mijas Pueblo.

Golf
Being located on the Costa del Golf, means that you won’t go far without finding a golf course. Close to Torremolinos are the courses of
Guadalhorce, Lauro Golf, Alhaurin Golf and Torrequebrada.

Eating out
This modern resort is teeming with bars and restaurants, you definitely won’t go hungry! There are good price tapas options, seafood diners and the typical beach chiringuitos of the Costa del Sol.

There are also lots of international options, from typical Brit grub, to pizzas, Chinese, Indian and much more.

Climate
Torremolinos enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean
climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable; temperatures average 32 ºC during the summer.

Torremolinos review

Lots of activities for people of all ages. Everything is within walking distance - plenty of shopping opportunities and plenty of great restaurants, cozy cafés, and fun bars. It is also close to the airport, which you can't hear at all. Catch the local train (clean and efficient) from the airport to Torremolinos - it's a 10 minute ride. The local train can also take you to Malaga city in 20 minutes or Fuengirola in about 35 min.


Costa del Sol reviews

Lovely and clean. The beach promenade stretches from the city limit (about 2 km. north of Torremolinos) to Benalmadena harbour (about 2 km. south of Torremolinos - this part is pedestrians/bikes only) - perfect for a morning run or power-walk, a bike-ride (allowed on the promenade) or a pleasant stroll. The sandy beach is cleaned frequently by the city (but there are sea shells to be found). Note, that there is a shoulder of pepples (about 20 cms high) just outside the waterline - bathing shoes are advised for smaller children and those who are not too agile.
