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.

Playa La Carihuela is a great place to spend a relaxing day and has something for everyone. There's beach clubs, sun beds for hire and tons of reasonable places to eat and drink.

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.

Nice for a walk from Torremolinos. Lots of bars and Ice Cream shops. Some restaurants too. There are a few shops with the usual tourist merchandise.

Whenever we pop into Torremolinos we always take the stroll to La Carihuela. The bars and beaches are well looked after and very popular, something for everyone , a strong Dutch contingent. It is a hidden gem and well worth a look when you are in the area
