Noisy and busy in summer, Torremolinos becomes calmer in the cold of winter and a good starting point for exploring Andalusia.
Torremolinos is the pioneer of mass tourism on the Costa del Sol - the tourist boom started in the early 1960s.
Since then, Torremolinos managed to build and develop its infrastructure which enables the city to increase its population in summer seven-fold.
Torremolinos is a democratic resort. There are no five-star hotels there. Among those located on the lively promenades of La Carihuela and Bajondillo you can chose between comfortable four- and three-star beach hotels, a wide variety of which are available at Booked.net. Use our website to find the best deal on a Torremolinos Hotel often at below rack rates. Three-star city hotels in the heart of the resort are popular among youth and are set around the corner from all entertainment like discos, bars, restaurants and other establishments.
Although Torremolinas is a beach resort, there some places you can visit:
- Casa de las Navajas (Villa Pepita) - a beautiful building in the Bajondillo waterfront. Built in 1925, it is the most noticeable in Torremolinos. The former private villa is now owned by the city administration
- Pimentel Tower - the oldest building in the city. It is situated on a cliff therefore it offers magnificent views of the city, sea and beaches. Now the building is surrounded by houses and is in the midst of urban life
- Nohalera Square, a beautiful scenic spot in the center of the pedestrian zone. Here and there are fountains, playgrounds, cozy multinational restaurants and the unique spirit of Spain
- Aquapark - a water park on the northern outskirts of the city
- Crocodile Park - next to the Aquapark
If you want to see the African shore (it is the African hot air that makes this resort so warm), enjoy the clean beaches of Costa del Sol and cool yourself in the waters of Mediterranean during hot summer, then you have to choose Torremolinos as your primary destination.
