A seaside resort town on Spain’s Costa del Sol, Torremolinos is located 12km south of Malaga. Famed for its beaches and incredible weather, Torremolinos offers sun worshippers the ideal place to get a dose of sea and sand. Tourists can shop until they drop on pedestrian only Calle San Miguel, while the original fishing village, La Carihuela, offers glimpses of what Torremolinos might have been like before its transformation into a tourism mecca in the 1950s. As well as original architecture, La Carihuela is known throughout Spain as an epicenter of Andalucian cuisine, with fabulous local seafood. Closer to the beach, head for a chiringuitos to sample pescaito frito, or fried sardines. If you choose a self-catering villa or apartment in Torremolinos, you can save money on dining out by stocking up on supplies at the large Mercadona supermarket.
