10 Things to Do in Torremolinos That You Shouldn't Miss

August 13, 2017 Stefan Strunk

As the gateway to Costa del Sol, Torremolinos is a modern city preserving the great charms of the Andalusian tradition. Here visitors enjoy more than 300 sunny days every year, comfortable temperatures (avg. 19ºC/66ºF) and 7km of beaches along the sparkling Mediterranean. Away from the sea and sand, travelers can explore the old fisherman’s district of “La Carihuela,” or sample the city’s cuisine – including regional favorite Pescalto Frito (fried fish) – in hundreds of restaurants and bars.

Jardin Botanico Molino de Inca

Reviewed By Lilacwheaty - Nottingham, United Kingdom

Plenty of structure and trees to make this worth a 1-2 hour visit any time of year. Japanese garden was one of several highlights, with pool of terrapins. Several pens of caged birds (looks like the birds of prey get outdoor exercise via displays also)
In warmer weather, the views and colours would be even more impressive.
we found it tranquil, unhurried and the 1 Euro entry fee seriously undersells what is on offer. We took a taxi from centre of town for 7 Euros and walked back (approx. 15 minutes)

La Carihuela

Historic neighborhood that used to be the fisherman's district.

Visited this area several times during a 12 day holiday, it stretches from the Benalmadena marina end of Torremolinos over to the Punto de Torremolinos and runs parallel to the beach. One street back and running parallel, is the pedestrian precinct, there are an abundance of shops, cafes, bars and a great holiday atmosphere

Paseo Maritimo

Reviewed By nnmercman - Camberley, United Kingdom

This long Promenade stretches all the way along the beach with plenty of bars and cafes to rest your weary legs. Visited mid February and it was a very pleasant stroll but guess it’s probably too hot during the day mid summer. Numerous hotels and holiday apartments rise along the road opposite. We walked to the prom from Calle San Miguel which is the main tourist area on the hill above and took the lift back up! Have to say the Promenade is starting to look dated but if you look beyond that then you won’t be disappointed.

Playa La Carihuela

Reviewed By Twotoneskaman - Kent

We were staying in Torremolinos the 1st week of January 2018. We walked alongside this beach on our way to Benalmadena and back and it looked fantastic.
The only downside - please be aware of the ladies selling / offering donations for Heather in this area as we witnessed them actually putting their hands into unsuspecting "targets" handbags & purses.

Playa El Bajondillo

Reviewed By nnmercman - Camberley, United Kingdom

Walked down to the beach from Calle San Miguel (and took the lift back up!). Beach is long and wide with cafes/bars all along and even mid February there were visitors lounging on sunbeds sheltered by windbreaks - you get sweeping views along the coast and inland where at this time of year some Mountains had snow on top! Sand is dark but fine and only a little shingly near the waters edge - so very pleasant compared to a lot of the stoney Beaches along the coast. There’s a long promendade above the beach which is a pleasant stroll. Limited parking along the beach road and you’d need to be very lucky to get a spot even out of season.

Casa de los Navajas

Reviewed By Barbara R - Devon, United Kingdom

This small house, built in 1926, has recently been refurbished. It is now a wedding venue and the room where the weddings take place is laid out accordingly. The house is quite small with not much to see inside but it has been decorated really well and has great views. Best of all, it is free to enter!

Calle San Miguel

A pleasant, though touristy, street lined with shops, bars and cafes.

Reviewed By justjo008 - Northeastern Ontario, Canada

Hubby and I enjoyed walking the Calle San Miguel, stopping into the shops, sitting and having beverages at the cafes BUT we found it a little too busy for us. There were people everywhere and no one pays attention to where they are walking or when they stop....they just go.

Beautiful beach a 10 min walk from Los Alamos train station. Quieter than the other Torremolinos Beaches, there are some eateries along the walk. Nice for a cycle or walk.
