Once a small, fishing village Torremolinos was redeveloped in the Sixties to become one of Spain’s first fully-fledged beach resorts. While having retained much of it’s original charm, holidays to Torremolinos are ideal for those who want all they could possibly need, right on the doorstep. The sun-bleached beaches and nearby waterparks provide perfect entertainment if you’re travelling with children, while the quiet coves and exciting array of restaurants that line the coast are the perfect backdrop for couples wanting to spend some quality time together. If you like things a little livelier, the marina offers a superb choice of water sports and the town centre comes alive at night with a buzzing bar scene. There’s even a selection of outstanding golf courses, nearby for fans of the five-iron who want to keep on top of their game. With so much to see and do, you can make your Nerja holidays exactly what you want them to be!
If your idea of Torremolinos holidays is to find a sweep of sand and stretch out under the sun, you’ll be spoilt for choice! There are seven sun-kissed beaches just a short stroll from the seafront promenade, starting with the lively La Carihuela and getting smaller and quieter the further east you go. Stop for lunch at a local chiringuito or visit the marina for a boat trip along the coast. Golfers can challenge themselves on the fairways at Parador Malaga de Golf, while those with children can or ride the slides or splash about in the water playgrounds at Aqualand. For a delicious, leisurely dinner, try out the local fare and Mediterranean specialties at a waterfront restaurant, or for a lively evening out, head into town and hit the bars.
If you’re looking for the hottest weather, book your holidays between July and August, when the temperature hovers in the mid-twenties and peaks in the low thirties °C. Go in May for slightly cooler temperatures.
Flights to the resort land at Malaga Airport, which is roughly 15 minutes’ drive away.
