We visited in 2006 and go again for Christmas this year, 2007. We like the friendly and clean pedestrian street parallel to the beach front. Many shops have "Walk thoughs" so you can go straight from the seafront to the many restaurants. The little shops,...More

Choose Playa Miguel beach bar for your sunbathing... Especially if you fancy treating yourself to a posh bed and canopy experience. Recommend you try a sangria whilst there, they are the very best!!

La Carihuela is a hidden gems between Torremolinos and Benalmadena. Only a few streets wide and half a mile long. It’s the perfect quiet getaway with bars and restaurants to die for. Excellent beach and promenade.

Ate here twice during our week in La Carihuela. Had the best pasta dish in years. Brilliant chef and the owner/waiter was brilliant.

The sea front is lined with restaurants and few bars. It's a Dutch/ English/Spanish area and well worth a visit.

The sea shore and the Carihuela area are not far from many places in Torremolinos. You can walk there fairly easily but it is a good idea to wear comfortable shoes as there are changes in elevation going down and back. A... More
