Top attractions in Torremolinos
Poor fishing village turned international beach paradise, Torremolinos, Spain was one of the first tourism cities of southern Spain. Surprisingly, it has maintained much of its local charm and natural beauty, making it the perfect vacation spot.
Be sure not to miss this centrally located gem. Fountains, old cannons, maintained footpaths, even a boating lake, make La Parque Bateria a peaceful stop in the afternoon.
Take a 15-minute train ride down to Benalmadena for Tivoli World, a magical family-friendly theme park with endless rides and entertainment.
While you’re down in Benalmadena, stop by the aquarium. There’s a beautiful walk-through glass tunnel and live feeding shows with the dolphins and small sharks.
Climb to the top of the famous Torremolinos escalera (stairs) for this ornate Spanish church. Be sure to check out the various restaurants and cafes in the surrounding square.
This beautifully preserved historic house is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. It’s well worth the 2€ entrance to wander through this Torremolinos beach home and garden.
Playa La Carihuela is one of the best beaches of Costa del Sol with plenty of locals offering delicious treats and drinks.
You’ll probably never get another chance to see so many crocodiles in such an informative and fun environment. It’ll be worth it to check the feeding times before booking.
This fried baby fish is a local favorite. It’s all about seafood here—from fresh sardines cooked over charcoal to the traditional dish of sea bass baked in a block of salt.
The entire Costa del Sol region is a beachside paradise. Make it a true adventure and take a bus or rent a car to get to Benalmadena, Mijas, and Malaga. Even better: look into the various boat trips offered in the area.

What people are saying about Torremolinos
Very good planned and informative tour with a very good guide who was able to put the whole tour into kind of a story with a lot of new information. Thanks, Paul, for this great experience. The caminito, of course, is breathtaking and a wonderful and beautiful place.
Ronda The guide on the coach name was José he speaks 7 languages and flaunt is all, he was very informative about each town we passed through. The journey to Ronda had spectacular views stopping off at a village called Setenil where we was treated as it was a festival, people in local dress, riders & horses and procession. After moving onto Ronda the same festival was in Ronda but with more People and evermore elaborated dress from men & lady’s our first stop was the bullring and going through the history of the bullfights and a walk around the bullring itself. Moving onto the winery where we had some wine tasting from white, Red to sweet sherry. We then see what everyone come to see the Ronda Bridge instead of following everyone else where you only get a limited view we went down to another view point and got great views and some super photos. After we had lunch in a cafeteria up one of the side streets avoiding the Main Street as prices are higher to tourist; a great day.

Perfect trip can only recommend this! The guide was from ´Czech republic and as i remember his name was Alex but not sure. Huge thanks to him for making our tour a tour we will remember!
We were met at the cruise terminal by a charming and friendly driver, Jose, who took us in his super comfy van to Granada, to meet our guide, Alberto. The site is spectacular and the guide was knowledgeable, fun, pleasant and very fluent in English. All in all an absolutely great tour! Thanks.
The gardens in Alhambra are very beautiful. The castles are amazing. It was one of the best tours I have ever been to. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
