The vibrant resort of Torremolinos is an attractive holiday destination for both families and groups. Relax on the pristine, golden sands of the Costa del Sol’s fine beaches and enjoy the iconic scenery of one of the first resorts in the area. With an upbeat nightlife and plenty of activities to do in the sunshine, it’s no wonder Torremolinos has been a popular holiday destination for over 60 years.
Torremolinos has six main beaches along the 7 kilometre promenade with a wide walkway that links the sandy shores together. Playa El Bajondillo is one of the most popular as it’s easily accessible from the coastline hotels and has a lot of fantastic amenities for a comfortable day at the beach.
Have a bite to eat in the surrounding cafés and restaurants, before relaxing on sun loungers with sounds of the lapping, shallow waves and picturesque views of the coast. Find shade by the swaying palm trees or cool off by taking a dip in the refreshing waters.
For something a little more upbeat, have a go at the various water sports available to you, including pedalos, banana boats, jet skis and paragliding. La Carihuela is another superb beach that’s a little further down the promenade and surrounded by dramatic rock formations.
The vibrant holiday resort of Torremolinos was quite different before it first transformed in the 1950s. It started out as a quaint fishing village, which is still reflected in the several fresh fish restaurants along the coast. Torremolinos was one of the first major developments on the Costa del Sol and still has an iconic, retro, seaside feel, with the towering hotel complexes and colourful buildings. Holidaymakers flock to the sunny resort for its beautiful beaches, great location just west of Malaga and its vibrant entertainment both day and night.
There’s a wide choice of entertainment and nightlife to enjoy in Torremolinos. Most of the vibrant bars and clubs can be found on the long main street that runs through the middle of the town. This makes it even easier to enjoy the upbeat atmosphere and roam from bar to bar, sipping on a few cocktails as you go. The younger holidaymakers tend to spend their time by the Los Alamos Promenade for the various Beach Clubs that have resident DJs playing the latest summer tunes until the sun comes up.
If you’re travelling with the family, why not have a magical evening watching a live performance? Enjoy the intimate venue as you watch The Chamber of Secrets show, where comedy, close up magic tricks and remarkable illusions are the main attraction.
There are also some fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy delicious fresh fish, Spanish and Italian meals. You’re bound to find something to suit your tastes as there are plenty of places to eat. From a romantic sunset setting in Pueblo Blanco, to the laidback beachside restaurants, Torremolinos has it all.
