Torremolinos - Life’s a permanent holiday in the Spanish resort
Location: A classic mix of sun, sea, and sand.
The main draw of Torremolinos is its location. Just 12 km from the busy Málaga Airport, it is incredibly easy to get to from pretty much anywhere in Europe. Torremolinos stretches out across the Costa del Sol on Spain’s famous southern coast, with golden sandy beaches leading into the warm Mediterranean Sea. This classic combination of sun, sea, and sand has seen Torremolinos grow from a small fishing village to a dynamic city over the past 50 years.
Business: A roaring trade in tourism
There is one big business in Torremolinos: tourism. The city has a disproportionate number of restaurants and bars in an effort to cater to a fleeting clientele who just want to have a good time. The nightlife in Torremolinos attracts young people from all over Spain, and the city has a particularly great reputation among the LGBT community.
Culture: Exposing Andalusia’s natural charm
Torremolinos is a typically Andalusian city in many ways - there is an abundance of seafood and sangria, and everyone will receive the laid back but friendly Spanish welcome. Fishing was once the main industry here, and a few old fishing villages can still be found just a few miles down the coast.
Activities: Make a splash
Torremolinos is a veteran of the tourist industry, and there is seemingly no end to the variety of activities on offer. The Aqualand waterpark is a favourite with children, while adults can make the most of the warm waters by taking part in the many water sports on offer along the sea front.
