Midway between Torremolinos and Benalmadena and has a lovely atmosphere and feels very Spanish. Not over touristy but everything you need for a good holiday. Fabulous beach...excellent eateries.

La Carihuela beach is located at the end of the promenade in Torremolinos. There are well marked swimming zones, beach beds and parasol hire at various points including public showers and toilets. The strip along this district is also dotted with many hotels, bars and restaurants.

While on holiday last week in La Carhueila my Husband and I spent alot of our time walking on the beach and on the promenade once the weather cleared up. It is so convenient to all the lovely small bars and restaurants. The selection of shops are great .A very relaxing and refreshing holiday for this time of the year.
