Torremolinos is located between Malaga and Marbella on the Andalucian coast of the Mediterranean. The perfect weather together with the many beautiful beaches in the area makes the province well-liked by all visitors. The climate aside, this is a fascinating area with a rich and unique history and the town has a great variety of busy restaurants, bars and bodegas. If you wish to travel to more secluded beaches, or even as far as Malaga then we highly recommend you purchase car hire in Torremolinos. Book in advance of travelling here in order to secure a car and at a cheap price.
La Carihuela is the original fisherman's district and just west of the town centre. Here you can sample some of the best seafood available in the entire region. There's a smart new promenade here which extends as far as the Puerto Deportivo in Benalmadena. A lot of streets are pedestrianised so its lovely strolling around without worrying about passing cars.
The town has numerous public gardens and thousands of species of trees have been planted, ranging from banana trees to exotic magnolia's to vibrantly colourful beds of roses and azaleas.
The nightlife isn’t hard to find; often some hedonistic holidaymakers let their festivities begin just after siesta time in the afternoon. Bring on the sangria!
If this sounds too energetic however, then of course there is the sun-lounger alternative and La Carihuela and Bajondillo beaches hold European blue flags. Their promenades are also now linked together to make a pleasant walk around the headland.
The province’s main airport is in Malaga and is the 5th busiest in Spain. Most major destinations can be reached, both domestic and international, and it is easily accessed from the city.
From the airport to Malaga, take the train towards Fuengirola or wait for a bus. This is much cheaper than taking a taxi all the way from the airport.
There are also regional airports in Almeria, Sevilla, Gibraltar, Jerez though these offer mainly domestic services.
Trains are a slightly more expensive option, but always the most scenic way to travel, the Talgo train or the fast AVE being the best ways to enjoy the Spanish scenery flying by.
Travelling by bus is often problematic throughout Spain. You may find yourself queuing for some time, even if you only want to look at the bus timetable. On some occasions you may only purchase a ticket 20 minutes before departure.
For big bus trips try the reliable Daibus service. Cheaper than travelling by train or plane if you want to travel to and from Madrid and the Costa del Sol. Buses leave from Marbella and take you right into Madrid in 8 hours with one stopover on route.
The coastal roads are perfect for people driving Spain at their own pace. However, accidents on the N340 Coast del Sol road are often the cause of long delays and travellers should be patient.
