Charm in Torremolinos holiday lettings

Set on the Costa Del Sol and boasting seemingly endless sandy beaches, Torremolinos is a lively and popular resort with lots of family fun. Originally a fishing village, the Old Town is still full of Andalusian charm, with mosaic-clad buildings and shops selling local crafts, as well as an old-fashioned promenade full of tapas restaurants. Choose a Torremolinos holiday rental, such as a seafront apartment, and you can explore the historic churches and cultural sites or enjoy the year-round sunshine from a sun lounger on the beach.

Attractions near Torremolinos holiday lettings

Cool off on hot days by booking tickets for Aqua Land. There are plenty of thrilling rides, with colourful waterslides, a wave pool and a 90-degree slide that's a sheer drop into the pool. However, if you prefer something more sedate, there's a bubble pool with warm waters, an area for younger kids with shallower slides and gentler rides where you can float and relax on a giant rubber ring. With a jungle theme, there are plenty of palm trees for shade and large model animals around the park which make for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.
