“Basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This beach was ok if you like to just sit back and relax. There were no water activites unless you walked a long way to the left or right. The bars and cafes were lovely but thats all there were and you could walk miles and miles but it all seemed the same. The sand is grey so got very hot in the sun. The sun beds were 10E per day each but was nice to have the comfort and shade of using them instead of just a towel on the beach. The water was freezing, hardly anyone was swimming it was that cold!

Love this part of Torremolinos. all the pathed streets. With the shops. bars and resturants spilling out onto them.

“lovely place to shop and eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Traditionally Spanish but with a Cosmopolitan twinge there is no one dragging you into the shops they allow you to browse at your will and with restaurants, cafes,pubs intermingled in between you couldn't ask for anything else and I must say if you feel adventurous go to the shop were the fish nibble away at your loose skin on your feet.
