As one of the first destinations to be developed on the Costa del Sol, Torremolinos gives you all the things that attracted holidaymakers in the 1950s and 60s: There are superb beaches that continue in an almost unbroken line for tens of kilometres, blessed with a summer season that runs from as early as Easter through to October.
Golfers can get to a course in minutes, there are plenty of attractions that the kids will love and an endless choice of restaurants for eating out. On top of all that you can get to all sorts of interesting places in the car, from typical Andalusian villages to an outlandish karst landscape without equal in western Europe.
Let’s have a look at the best things to do in Torremolinos:
Torremolinos alone has seven kilometres of seafront with six main beaches, and there are many more if you continue down to Benalmádena.
The most lively and colourful stretch is Playa de Bajondillo, right next to the resort’s big hotels and apartment blocks and with abundant amenities like restaurants, sun loungers and parasols.
If you prefer a bit more peace then go up the Paseo Marítimo towards Playamar and Los Alamos where the resort’s sprawl starts to thin out but there are still conveniences like beach bars and sun lounger rental.
