Holidays to Torremolinos get you oversized beaches, big nightlife and lots of tasty Spanish food. But there’s a home-from-home feel here, too, with a thriving local Brit population.
Torremolinos's popularity exploded in its 1950s heyday when glamorous movie stars frequented its shores. Today, it's still a hit, with cruise holiday travellers calling in to enjoy some beach life and partying in this classic resort on the Costa del Sol.
A welcoming town
Torremolinos lies just short of 20 kilometres south of Málaga and is packed with bars and restaurants that have learned throughout the years exactly what visitors to the Costa del Sol like. This is all part of the reason why tourists return year after year to sun themselves on one of the Costa del Sol’s largest and most popular beaches. If you're on a Cruise & Stay holiday, or even if you're not, you'll find Torremolinos is fun, lively and has an upbeat atmosphere that gets you into the holiday spirit right from the start.
Big beaches, big nightlife
The expansive beaches of Torremolinos are a major crowd-puller. Buzzing with life in the height of summer, their popularity means they have every facility you could need, from the hire of sunbeds and parasols, to toilets and snack shacks. As the sun sets, Torremolinos’s vibrant nightlife comes alive with cocktail bars and clubs that keep going until dawn. There's also an excellent selection of tapas bars and flamenco joints if you prefer a more traditional Spanish night out during your Cruise & Stay holiday.
The popularity of Torremolinos has meant a plethora of leisure options have sprung up around the resort, so there’s no shortage of ideas to keep everyone amused, from the youngest to the oldest, and from the most energetic to the most idle. The waterpark in Torremolinos is the ideal place to cool down, or if you want to venture out of Torremolinos you can go on a day trip to the zoo in Fuengirola or to the sea life centre in Benalmadena.
Torremolinos may be beach holiday central, but that doesn’t mean you have to go far to experience some classic Spanish culture and get your fix of architecture, art and shopping. You can reach the wonderful, culturally rich cities of Seville and Granada by driving for a couple of hours through the Andalusian mountains. You also have Málaga on your doorstep, of course, since it's just 30-minutes away by car.
