Once a poor fishing village but over the years, Torremolinos has evolved as an attractive and appealing resort, noted for its clean sandy beaches. Along the whole Torremolinos coastline of 8 kilometres you'll find several 'chiringuitos' where to try the famous fried fish or the sardines (locally known as 'Espetos'). Or you can do a bit of shopping on the well-known San Miguel street, a small straight avenue full of small shops of all kinds and cafes. Due to the mild climate throughout the year, Torremolinos receives a steady stream of visitors also in the winter months. Its proximity to other tourist destinations like Malaga and Benalmadena make Torremolinos the perfect place to stay.
Torremolinos is built on a cliff and has a pedestrianised centre with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The seafront area all the way along to Benalmadena is very suitable for wheelchair users. The Carihuela area is also popular due to its high density of bars/restaurants most of which have ramp access. Many of the restaurants in the carihuela area which have steps off the promenade have a rear door flat access. Another good area to stay is Los Alamos. Torremolinos has a couple of adapted beaches.
