Situated at the "end" of the tourist area,this location is a bit quieter then the other end of its huge wide sandy beach,which stretches to Torremolinos and beyond.Pace of life here is a bit more low key but that doesn't mean you sacrifice all the nightlife,bars and restaurants that you get further along,just seems a bit more "genteel"

Great stretch of beach with cafes and bars although many closed in December. Seems to be maintained with the daily cleaning even in the off season.

Beautiful beach a 10 min walk from Los Alamos train station. Quieter than the other Torremolinos beaches, there are some eateries along the walk. Nice for a cycle or walk.

Great beach area with loads of impressive beach bars including family owned ones. Visited in October 2016 and had a great 2 days paying only 2 euros for supercomfy sunbeds & 2 euros for a pint of San Miguel. I think this end of Torremolinos may be a bit cheaper than other parts

Slightly overcrowded in Summer, the best period is May June and September where the weather is still very warm and you can find easily places to chill.

Went to Spain for two hot sunny weeks and we visited the beach a few times which was beautiful and picturesque! Soft sand, a bit stoney at the sea front and of course the cool refreshing sea. There are a few restaurants on the beach which we had drinks at and water activities were available too. My partner and I... More
