Torremolinos Introduction

Torremolinos was the first resort on the Costa del Sol to be developed. Only seven kilometres from Malaga airport, it has the advantage of a very short transfer time.

From a sleepy fishing village Torremolinos has grown into a thriving holiday destination much loved by Europe’s eighteen to thirty age group. Much has been done in recent years to improve its tarnished image. Beaches are clean, the streets are litter free and gardens have been planted which soften the effect of the high rise accommodation.

Why go to Torremolinos

A Torremolinos holiday offers sun, several sandy beaches, water sports and, for those who wish, an extremely lively nightlife. There are bars and restaurants galore with such diversity of menu that surely cater for all tastes.

Although Torremolinos attracts huge numbers of young holiday makers it also has a wider appeal. Families with young children enjoy the sandy beaches with safe bathing and there are many opportunities for participating in sports on both land and sea. Golfers have a choice of courses in the area. Older couples can enjoy a Torremolinos holiday out of season when the resort loses its frenetic pace. There is also a fairly large gay scene.

When To Go To Torremolinos

Torremolinos is a year round holiday destination with the summer months being the most popular. It is a good place to visit out of season to shorten the long dreary days of a typical British winter.

Torremolinos - The Place

The oldest resort in the Costa del Sol, Torremolinos has suffered in the past from the reputation of being a blot on the landscape. It developed from a small fishing village and the high rise hotels and apartments were less than pretty. However in recent years a great effort has been made to improve its appearance. Gardens have been planted which contain an impressive variety of trees and the flower beds are always a blaze of colour no matter what the season. The beaches and the streets are cleaned at the end of every night leaving the resort tidy and almost litter free.

Torremolinos has six main beaches all connected by the wide promenade that runs behind them from Playama to La Carihuela, a charming fishing village devoid of high rise development and home to excellent fishing restaurants. The sandy beaches are wide and deep, perfect for families. Water sports include water skiing, wind surfing, para-gliding and fishing. The marina has created artificial islands to increase the number of berths available. These are joined by bridges so visitors can stroll around and observe the yachts.

Golfers have a choice of courses including Real Club de Golf de Malaga, the oldest course in Spain.

Torremolinos is well served with shops and restaurants catering for all tastes.

Tivoli World, three kilometres from the town, and the Aquapark are popular attractions with both adults and children with their exciting rides and water flumes.

Torremolinos Nightlife

In spite of its reputation, Torremolinos has evening entertainment to suit everyone. Young teenagers wanting to spread their wings will find early evening discos in the Paladium. Eighteen to thirties have a huge choice of bars and clubs, including Piper’s said to be Europe’s largest disco, where they can dance till dawn. The marina is a vibrant night spot with many bars having live music. There are also Salsa clubs and Flamenco bars. The gay scene is centred around La Nogalera which has many bars and drag clubs.

Torremolinos Shopping

Torremolinos’ Calle son Miguel is where serious shoppers congregate. There you will find many designer boutiques, international clothes outlets and small specialist shops. Every Thursday there is a market behind the town hall where you can buy your holiday souvenirs.

Torremolinos Eating

The variety of cafés and restaurants caters for most tastes. There is wide provision of food to suit the less adventurous British palate including fast food outlets. Many restaurants serve an international menu. To experience traditional Spanish food, walk along to La Carihuela where the small fish restaurants will delight the taste buds. Local wines are good and inexpensive. Children are always given a warm welcome in Spanish restaurants.
