Once famous for its rowdy behaviour, Torremolinos has worked hard to change its image and offers holidaymakers a first class resort.
Torremolinos has evolved over the last few years into an attractive and appealing resort noted for its clean sandy beaches, wide choice of hotels and restaurants. There is an unparalleled variety of entertainment, activities and nightlife available.
This town was at the heart of the tourist boom back in the 1980’s and it got a reputation as a noisy and rowdy resort. However things have changed in recent years and the area has something to offer everyone. Many British and Scandinavian people have settled here to take advantage of the climate
While it's hard to believe that forty years ago Torremolinos was little more than a sleepy fishing village, the town still reflects its heritage. There are several of the original fresh fish bars located in the middle of the shopping centre. However exclusive boutiques and gift shops flank these instead of the old, little white houses.
However the waves of tourists who descended on the town in the fifties and sixties changed the face of Torremolinos forever. Bars and restaurants opened by the dozen and visitors came from all over the world and included well known writers and artists, as well as starlets, aristocrats and seasoned travellers.
Torremolinos is packed with tantalizing shops, thronging with people of every nationality. Located right at the heart of the town is the pedestrian only Calle San Miguel, which is, without a doubt, the best-known street. It is a "people watchers" paradise where buskers, street vendors, sophisticated shops and ice cream salesmen converge to create a memorable ambience.
The quiet back streets with their chirruping canaries and narrow cobbled streets have mercifully survived the passage of time and are recommended for those who seek a slice of real Spain.
