Renowned as one of the biggest tourist resorts on the Costa del Sol, Torremolinos is the quintessential Costa del Sol beach resort town. It has developed quickly, and now areas of the city are overshadowed by high-rise apartment blocks, but by and large it is still an attractive resort. Young Brits are actively sold package holidays to Torremolinos, and in the summer you will probably hear more people speaking English than Spanish. However, people from all over Europe and the rest of the world choose to visit this bustling resort.
Very close to the neighbouring city of Malaga, and just 4 miles from Malaga’s International airport, Torremolinos is a very convenient resort to visit. There is a wide range of accommodation here to suit every need and budget, and there are a huge range of restaurants so you will never have to eat in the same place twice. The beach is a great place to meet fellow holidaymakers, and here you can try a spot of kite surfing or wind surfing if you have the energy. Most people do not spend their holidays in Torremolinos for its culture and history, but there are a few notable monuments, like the Parish Church of San Miguel Arcangel, and the Casa de los Navaja, that are well worth a visit.
Holidays in Torremolinos are not for the faint-hearted, as it is well-known for being a resort where people come for the wild nights that are on offer. While this appeal will be lost on some people, nevertheless tourists keep on coming back here year after year for more of its hedonistic delights. If you are not in the mood to let your hair down and have some unadulterated fun, then perhaps think twice about choosing Torremolinos when flicking through package holiday deals.
