Best places to stay in Torremolinos
Torremolinos is an Andalusian municipality located in the Malaga province, just a few kilometres from the capital on the Costa del Sol. It is frequented by national and international visitors, however the origins of Torremolinos are far from their current condition. The Punta de Torremolinos which was located at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas was an attractive location for its first settlers who decided to settle in that precise place for the unbeatable conditions that it offered. It had easy access to the sea and its resources, but also to the mountain, where mills began to proliferate to take advantage of the water that flowed from the mountains. Years later, the abundance of the mills together with the appearance of the Pimentel Tower ended up giving it its current name: Torremolinos which means ‘tower - mills’. Up until the beginning of the last century they began to disappear and the activity of Torremolinos began to focus on the sea, and became a small fishing village. That’s when Torremolinos began to position itself as a tourist destination, with the first travellers including Salvador Dalí and Gala Eluard. These were the first great names to spend their holidays on the Torremolinos coast to make it famous worldwide. It would not be until after the Civil War, a stage in which Torremolinos even had a Francoist concentration camp, and the Second World War, when the final outbreak in the tourism sector would appear. Grace Kelly, Elton John and Frank Sinatra were among those to choose Torremolinos as their summer destination. Positioning itself from the beginning with a libertine and hedonistic philosophy, it normalised homosexuality and extravagance even during the Franco regime. During the movida, the city took another step and consolidated itself as one of the great tourist destinations in Spain. It has the largest capacity for holiday accommodation in all of Andalusia and after the great growth of recent years, apartments in Torremolinos Costa del Sol have multiplied throughout the city, generating new neighbourhoods with different characteristics. Before deciding where to stay, it will help you to explore them a little more in detail:
- Centre: This neighbourhood encompasses the historic centre of the city and is slightly separated from the coast by the Paseo Maritimo. It is a very lively area throughout the year with Calle San Miguel at its centre. This is the main artery of the city, full of shops and especially restaurants. The area of Plaza de La Nogalera and Pueblo Blanco is one of the great meeting points of the LGBT collective, both to stay and to hang out. The María Zambrano train station is also located next to this square, which makes it an option for connections.
- El Bajondillo: The apartments in El Bajondillo will transport you to one of the most typical neighbourhoods of Torremolinos, with the Torre de Pimentel separating it from the previous one. Along with the Paseo Marítimo, it borders its homonymous beach from the beginning at Punta de Torremolinos to the Playamar neighborhood, making it a very good option to stay in one of our Bajondillo apartments in Torremolinos just a few metres from the beach. Its chiringuitos offer the best of local cuisine with the best views of the Mediterranean.
- La Carihuela: The apartments in La Carihuela, on the other hand, will put you at the heart of the old fishing area of the city. To the south of the previous one, both separated by the famous Torremolinos point and Santa Clara Castle, it also has its own beach, which gives it its name, and is an extension of the Paseo Marítimo. Despite having been renovated in recent years, it still retains its narrow streets and old shops. It is the perfect area for family trips.
- Los Álamos: Located in the west end of the city, this is the most isolated area of Torremolinos. It is no coincidence, since the great attribute of Los Alamos, apart from the beach with which it shares its name, is its nightlife. Without a doubt this is the most lively neighborhood, with a mostly young atmosphere and a great concentration of beach clubs. So much so, that the Los Alamos Beach Festival electronic music festival is held here every year.
- Montemar and El Calvario: Both share a settlement in the upper part of Torremolinos. Being further from the coast, they have not undergone changes as much as all the previous ones. That is why they are mostly residential and have plenty of villas in Torremolinos Spain, in the case of quiet areas with a large concentration of local shops and bars. Among its great attractions include the Battery Park and the Spring Fountain.

However, the most extensive is that of El Carihuela which is two kilometres long located at the other end of Torremolinos. Both are perfectly complemented by the other two in the city: Playamar and Los Alamos beach. The latter is an important focus of nightlife, is full of music bars and cocktail bars of all types such as Lömbok or Café del Sol. Although Torremolinos nightlife extends far beyond this area, the atmosphere during the holidays is generally young. Other clubs such as Kiu and Dare generally attract younger crowds. As a gay friendly destination, most of the best options are in the downtown area with the likes of Paladium and Passion. There is no doubt that both day and night, Torremolinos is a destination that shines brightest in summer with a high season that can increase the average price of holiday accommodation up to 50%. During the winter months there are plenty of other options for your holiday, such as visiting the Pimentel Tower, the Molino de Inca Botanical Garden or the famous Crocodile Park. As temperatures fall, demand also falls for this typically summer destination. Visiting in low season is a much cheaper alternative, since prices are up to 60% cheaper than the annual average. Although it is clear that the best way to get the full potential of Torremolinos is during July and August.
