TorremolinosSpain

Experience the pretty sandy beaches, glorious sunny weather and fun-filled nightlife of Andalucía in the friendly resort town of Torremolinos.

The town of Torremolinos seems designed for having fun. Stay in the sunny coastal resort and enjoy lazy days on the beach and lively nights partying in clubs. Families who visit can take advantage of the numerous child-friendly attractions and try exhilarating watersports on the Mediterranean Sea. The charming town has discarded its reputation as a dull 20th-century vacation resort and is today one of the most desirable destinations on the Costa del Sol.

Torremolinos is a family-friendly spot, with numerous attractions that will appeal to all ages. Splash down the slides of Aqualand Torremolinos or meet the creatures that live underwater in Sea Life Benalmadena. The Crocodile Park in the western part of the town offers the chance to get close to ferocious reptiles. Brave the rides of Tivoli World for a day packed with thrills.

Visit some of the beaches on the outskirts of Torremolinos for sunbathing and swimming. La Carihuela is huge and picturesque. It also offers some of the best seafood in Costa del Sol. Head north to Los Alamos Beach for watersports, outdoor gyms and generally fewer people. Los Alamos is packed when it hosts a huge electronic music festival in July each year.

Wander around the scenic La Batería Park for a relaxing escape from the crowds. This beautifully designed park features a viewing point in a tower and a small boating lake.

The nightlife scene in Torremolinos is thriving. You can spend many evenings here hopping between different bars and clubs. LGBTQ+ travelers are welcomed to the gay capital of Costa del Sol. Several gay bars attract visitors from across the world.

Fly into Málaga’s airport from destinations all around Europe and hop on a westward train for 20 minutes to arrive in Torremolinos. Head here in summer to catch the sun at its hottest, although the weather remains pleasant throughout the year. Visit in winter to escape the cold and to experience the town without the summer crowds.

Could be better priced in low season. Almost same prices as Germany. 9€ for breakfast is a lot in Spain. You could get a 10€ 2course lunch away from the crowds and pick up a 2€ Bottle of wine in the Mercardo.

Fantastic location on the southern coast of Spain. Fall weather ideal for walking, swimming. Bus trips to Gibralter, Granada and the Alhambra were interesting.
