Torremolinos has boomed since the 1950s, becoming the gay capital of the Costa del Sol and a place known for its lively parties and laidback lifestyle. Though many of the buildings are newer in style, there are still snippets of the past down the winding streets. Step back into in the former fishing district of La Carihuela, where grilled fish simmers away on the side of the road and terraced eateries look out over the water. Whilst its reputation as a nightlife hotspot precedes it, there are plenty of other things to do in the area for active travelers and those on the hunt for some Spanish coastal culture. Become a part of Torremolinos’ ever-evolving story with our Torremolinos apartments. Found all over the city, they offer great views and an insight into the lively local life.
Torremolinos accommodation is mainly a mixture of resort hotels with on-site swimming pools and beachfront holiday apartments that look out over the sea. You might also be able to find a few affordable hostels and guesthouses in the centre of the resort, but, more often than not, the options are narrowed down to luxury hotels with beautiful views, and holiday studios that offer an independent way to explore Torremolinos.
Torremolinos is a family-friendly destination with a range of attractions for every member of the family. Make sure you check into one of our apartments in Torremolinos for the perfect place to kick back and relax after an exciting day.
Alongside its lively nightlife, Torremolinos boasts a burgeoning foodie scene that plays on traditional dishes with a twist. Throughout the streets of the resort centre, you’ll find a whole host of authentic eateries and family-run restaurants serving up a mouth-watering selection of local dishes and those inspired by cultures further afield.
Tuck into some tasty seafood at the working harbor. Being a seaside destination means that Torremolinos is known for its abundance of fresh seafood, particularly as it used to be one of the major working fishing ports in the region. Today, you can sample whitebait, snapper, langoustines and more every morning as they’re unloaded from the ships and immediately cooked up.
If you’re on the hunt for a local gem, head to Restaurante Avenida, an unassuming restaurant hidden away in the heart of Torremolinos. The décor isn’t particularly eye-catching, but the ever-present queue of locals outside tells you everything you need to know. The generous portions of delicious dishes are favourites in the town, and it’s the perfect place to sample some of the Costa del Sol’s foodie specialities.
Tapas lovers will enjoy Lanjaron, a small eatery on the seafront. There is a huge selection of traditional handmade tapas dishes and the views to go with them are incredible, too.
To whet your whistle, grab a table at La Cervezateca, a local bar that serves more than 100 different types of beer. Laid out like a traditional English pub, it offers a warm and friendly atmosphere and plenty of opportunities to interact with the locals.
You can also stop by at one of the food markets or traditional foodie stores and buy some local goods to take back to our Torremolinos apartments, where you can try your hand at cooking Spanish specialities for yourself.
