Torremolinos tourist information
Torremolinos is one of the Costa del Sol's oldest resorts and stands as one of the reasons why the Costa del Sol rose to prominence as a tourist venture. It sits to the west of the city of Malaga, which roughly marks the centre point of the 161km Costa del Sol coastline. Torremolinos is based in the province of Malaga, which is in the Andalucía region of Spain.
The central Playa La Carihuela in Torremolinos is 9 km long, although many visitors also enjoy the short walk to Montemar Beach. La Carihuela itself is full of bars and shops and represents the more historic side of Torremolinos, which was formerly a close-knit fishing community. Tapas restaurants are popular in this area of town.
The Calle San Miguel part of town is equally good for those seeking tourist amenities and carrying on further down towards the seafront is El Bajondillo where you will find plenty of market stalls and a pleasant part of the beach. Some more knowledgeable tourists follow the promenade along to El Calvario for a quieter side of Torremolinos life.
Like many of the Spanish coastal destinations, there is an aqua park in-keeping with the resort's family friendly vibe. Diving is very popular and there are plenty of organised dives in the warm Mediterranean waters. Snorkelling, surfing and the inevitable banana boats also feature.
Torremolinos has many diverse characteristics and attracts visitors for its beaches and hotels as well as its vibrant nightlife.
