Torremolinos Holidays

GENERAL

The Original and Still Number One

The original Costa del Sol resort - and for many still the number one choice - Torremolinos' popularity endures, and we can show you why on a Torremolinos package holiday or all-inclusive break from The Co-operative Travel.

Its many large hotels mark it out on the Costa del Sol skyline, but recent emphasis on developing the town's green spaces has succeeded in softening the 'concrete jungle' feel.

Development has spread out over the years from the centre of town, but has still largely ignored the western area of La Carihuela, where the native population is concentrated. This area rewards those who take the beautiful beachside walk from the main town with the promise of a meal in one of the excellent fish restaurants along the route.

Torremolinos' beaches are wider than those of many other resorts along the Costa del Sol. They tend to be sandy and are kept very clean, so they are perfectly safe for families.

Local Delicacies in Torremolinos

On your climb up from the beach to the town centre, it's a good idea to stop off at one of the chiringuitos along the way. These beach hut restaurants will tempt you with local specialities such as paella, barbecued sardines or pescaitos fritos, fried fish.

The shelter of the Sierra de Mijas mountains affords Torremolinos the luxury of 320 days' sunshine every year, and a year-round average temperature topping 70 degrees F, making Torremolinos a holiday resort for all seasons, as well as all reasons.

Of course, you can't expect to totally escape the sprawl of some of Torremolinos' many nightclubs, pubs and discos and these may be the reason you choose the resort in the first place. But these brasher establishments co-exist happily alongside more family-orientated venues, so everyone can find somewhere to relax and enjoy themselves.
