Torremolinos Holidays

A buzzing Costa del Sol resort

The first of many Costa del Sol hotspots to spring up from a quiet fishing village, Torremolinos has grown from a sleepy town into the region’s largest resort. And it has all the amenities and excitement you’d expect, with buzzing nightlife and a seemingly endless array of restaurants and bars. Torremolinos holidays offer a chance to indulge while basking in glorious sunshine. With six main beaches, water and theme parks nearby and an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, it’s a fantastic place to enjoy the great outdoors in both summer and winter.

But holidays to Torremolinos aren’t just about eating, drinking, partying and sunbathing (though if that’s what you’re in town for, you’re all set). The surrounding landscape is full of pretty villages, making it a fantastic base from which to explore – and for adventures further afield, Morocco is only a short ferry ride away.
