This beach in Torremolinos is a great vacational spot. Lively boulevard by the sea with great shops, bars and restaurants. Parking in the area can be tricky but there are enough public parking spaces in exchange of a small or not so small fee. We found a great mix of european tourists and the beach is algo safe in general.... More

The Golden Mile of Torremolinas. Well kept beach. Although the time of year we visited the water is still cold. The sun doesn't warm up until 11am ish. But don't let that stop you from enjoying the place.

Lots of opportunity to rent a chaise lounge, lay in the sun and have a cool drink. Or, if you prefer, find your own free spot. Good for people watching, access to shops and restaurants.
