Torremolinos Guide

The days of 18-30 holidays, mass drunkenness and Union Jack shorts are disappearing into bad memories now as Torremolinos has cleaned up its image. It’s still about fun and the beach, sun and sea but now the beach is perfectly manicured, the sea is clean and the fun is now part of nightly entertainment in five star hotels. For those that want a little more from their holidays, there are Roman ruins around Torremolinos as well as the traditional fishermen’s quarter La Carihuela. There are also many traditional and religious festivals celebrated in the town to which everyone is welcome.

Torremolinos Info

Torremolinos was the first holiday resort to develop along the Costa del Sol and in the 50s was an upmarket holiday resort frequented by Hollywood celebrities. With the advent of cheap package holidays its image became tarnished as it tried to attract the mass tourism sector. Trouble with groups of young people drawn by cheap accommodation, food and alcohol led to it suffering a massive decline in numbers and it became a butt of comedian’s jokes. Since the turn of the century, Torremolinos has sharpened up its image, opening many five star all inclusive hotels and is now returning to favour with the luxury market.
