Storm and rain. Then the playa is top for me. The beach is proper and the chiringuitos are waiting fot you with a lot of tastes. Prices? Amazing. Fish? Really fresh.

We always enjoy walking along here We are not walkers but when we come here we find ourselves walking for miles People watching as well as looking out for the green parrots in the trees On the beachside the The Restaurants made lovely displays in little gardens and it's worth going back at night to these displays all lit up

While I did my internship of 5 months in Benalmadena, I went to visit Playa La Carihuela every Sunday with my friends to play beach volleyball. The beach was always clean and there are plent of sunbeds. The beach restaurants never bother if you want to use their bathrooms. A great place to just relax and spend your day.

This is a quiet area of Torremolinos, which begins immediately after Benalmadena Harbour. You will find an abundance of chiringuitos along paseo Maritimo, some cheap & some not so cheap; but most have exceptionally good food. If you are in this area over a weekend, my tip would be to take a stroll on Sunday when it becomes very Spanish.
