Top Tours & Activities in Torremolinos
Poor fishing village turned international beach paradise, Torremolinos, Spain was one of the first tourism cities of southern Spain. Surprisingly, it has maintained much of its local charm and natural beauty, making it the perfect vacation spot.
Be sure not to miss this centrally located gem. Fountains, old cannons, maintained footpaths, even a boating lake, make La Parque Bateria a peaceful stop in the afternoon.
Take a 15-minute train ride down to Benalmadena for Tivoli World, a magical family-friendly theme park with endless rides and entertainment.
While you’re down in Benalmadena, stop by the aquarium. There’s a beautiful walk-through glass tunnel and live feeding shows with the dolphins and small sharks.
Climb to the top of the famous Torremolinos escalera (stairs) for this ornate Spanish church. Be sure to check out the various restaurants and cafes in the surrounding square.
This beautifully preserved historic house is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. It’s well worth the 2€ entrance to wander through this Torremolinos beach home and garden.
Playa La Carihuela is one of the best beaches of Costa del Sol with plenty of locals offering delicious treats and drinks.
You’ll probably never get another chance to see so many crocodiles in such an informative and fun environment. It’ll be worth it to check the feeding times before booking.
This fried baby fish is a local favorite. It’s all about seafood here—from fresh sardines cooked over charcoal to the traditional dish of sea bass baked in a block of salt.
The entire Costa del Sol region is a beachside paradise. Make it a true adventure and take a bus or rent a car to get to Benalmadena, Mijas, and Malaga. Even better: look into the various boat trips offered in the area.
