Torremolinos has evolved brilliantly over the last few decades to become an attractive resort, focused around its long, sandy and clean beaches, and offering a huge variety of entertainment, leisure facilities and exuberant nightlife. Accommodation in Torremolinos, Spain, is often taken up by young travellers, who love the resort due to the huge mix of attractions and sporting options, combined with fairly wild nightlife. However, away from the few short weeks of the peak season, accommodation in Torremolinos is ideal for quiet beach holidays with a distinctly Spanish air.
The main street in Torremolinos, Calle San Miguel, is a smart pedestrianised street filled with charming little shops and plenty of people. At the end of the street you can find numerous restaurants, some of which are simply superb, with the large El Bajondillo beach just beyond.
There are five main beaches within easy reach of a self catering Torremolinos apartment or villa, each covered in fine, golden sand. Those looking to rent a self catering Torremolinos property for the beaches will certainly not be disappointed by the beaches here, and there are some quieter beaches to be found around the coast if you are looking for a little peace and quiet. Windsurfing, paragliding and water skiing can be arranged along the back of the beach, and swimming is safe.
The countryside behind Torremolinos is a great location for walkers and mountain bikers who wish to explore the landscape, and there are a great number of golf courses to choose from, meaning golfing holidays from Torremolinos are a great option at any time of the year.
Family holidays are well catered for too. The famous Torremolinos aquapark provides a great fun day out, with water slides, artificial wave machines and a Sea Life Aquapark next door. The Torremolinos beach club also put on a magnificent spread of entertainment for children.
Benalmadena, Torremolinos’ more famous neighbour is similar in many respects. The nightlife is vibrant and the beaches beautiful. Benalmadena has risen as a tourist resort more recently than Torremolinos, and boasts a huge marina too.
Torremolinos has a remarkable climate. The Sierra de Mijas Mountains protect the town from the worst weather, meaning that there are an incredible 320 days of sunshine every year. During the summer months, daily temperatures are almost never below 30?C, and with yearly averages of 22?C, there is never a bad time to take self catering accommodation in Torremolinos.
Just 7km west of the huge Malaga Airport (AGP), reaching your accommodation in Torremolinos couldn’t be easier from the UK, or much of Europe for that matter.
