“Fabulous beach and Marina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

A beautiful walk all the way along the beach to the Marina. Lots of bars and restaurants on the beach side and little shops and side streets on the opposite side. You could walk for ages.

“best beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

La Carihuela is the area between Torremolinos and Benalmadena, there are more seafood restaurants along the promenade than you can count. some exclusive and expensive and some not so.the original fishing village has gone long ago but the flavour still exists with small alleyways and side streets. lunch can still be bought for as little as 5 Euro.Tourists co-habit side by side with locals living their everyday lives and the harmony works well.

“La Cariheula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

A lovely walk from the Belplaya Hotel if you are mobile those who are not get a taxi from outside the hotel for 9 euros.The side streets give an insight into what was once a typical fishing village this is where the locals meet for sunday lunch with their families in the fish restaurants which are amazing.

“Relaxing stroll with added retail therapy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Its a lovely low rise area with a warren of small back streets just a stones throw from the promenade. Lots of little bars, restaurants and shops that one could spend hours wandering around. Some excellent quality seafood at reasonable prices to be found. Shops are a mix of touristy knick knacks, clothes and leather selling establishments. When you tire of this venture onto the promenade, continue to stroll or simply sit and watch the world go by. Lovely,calm, relaxed atmosphere for anyone of any age.
