Torremolinos is a real charter classic and this is where tourism began.
From Fuengirola you take the commuter train which takes about 30 minutes, a car is not a good idea as parking is difficult. Calle de San Miguel is the main pedestrianised street and is full of bars, restaurants and shops.
Plaza de la Union Europea
In the centre is the EU square ‘Plaza de la Union Europea’. The street is the hub of the city and leads down to the beach, which is divided into two beaches by a cliff. The entire city centre is car-free
Sunbathing and swimming on long wide playas
People go to Torremolinos to sunbathe and swim, not to look at architecture. The beaches are wide with a seven kilometre long promenade. On La Carihuela beach you get a nice sea view overlooking exciting rock formations. There is also the pleasant old fishing village of La Carihuela with its small, picturesque houses. It is a little quieter here and the further east you go, the quieter the beaches become.
Ses Africa och Sierra Nevada
There are of course plenty of activities around Torremolinos, Tivoli World being the largest amusement park on the Costa del Sol. Cuidad de Torremolinos is a large sports centre, but there are also outdoor and indoor pools, a sauna and a jacuzzi. Los Manantiales – Molino de Inca is a large green area located next to several water sources and the garden dates back to the 16th century.
The cable car in Benalmadenan almost merges with Torremolinos. Here you will find the 2.5 km long cable car that takes you up the Calamorro mountain, on a clear day you can see the coast of Africa and the Sierra Nevada mountains.
