“Fantastic seafood and peaceful strolling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great seafood restaurants lined up along the beach in the old part of Torremolinos and great value for money. Even though I have a sentimental attachment to this place, it is the best place to take an evening stroll, have a drink, check out little beach shops and end with a fantastic seafood meal. This is a great little promenade, not to be missed when visiting Torremolinos.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Nestled between the busy resorts of Torremolinos and Benalmadena is one of the best stretches of fine sandy beach in Europe. La Carihuela, once a small fishing village, is perfect for the relaxing getaway.
Predominantly Dutch visitors but a wider range of European and worlwide holiday makers are discovering this hidden gem.
A wide range of restaurants, bars and shops add to the charm.

This is part of the walk between Benalmadena Marina and Torremolinos. Fabulous beach an abundance of cafés, restaurants and bars catering for all tastes and budgets. Lots of souvenir shops and other shops catering for holiday needs, beachwear, sunglasses etc. Great place to chill out.
