Torremolinos - Costa del Sol

Back in the late 60s Torremolinos was quickly growing to be one of the most liveliest resorts in Spain. Visitors came from all over Europe to make the most of the excellent year round climate and laze on the long sandy beaches and also to sample the cheap alcohol! Since those days though Torremolinos does seemed to have calmed down a little and is now a favorite destination for families where there are plenty of activities to keep all age groups happy.

In the centre of Torremolinos is a lively shopping area built all around Calle San Miguel. This street stretches from the main road at the back of town down to the sea front and is just one continual street of shops, bars and restaurants. To the west side is the oldest part of Torremolinos, this is the area of La Carihuela originally where the fishing village was in years gone by. Here is a street like no other around, with smart shops and restraunts its a pleasure to walk on the nicely tiled traffic free street. Every Sunday the restraunts fill the street with their tables and chairs for the traditional Spanish Sunday lunch menu of the day.

To the eastern side of town is the relatively new areas of Playamar and Bajondilla, with smart new hotels and modern apartment blocks
