Things to do in Torremolinos
If you visit Torremolinos there are plenty of things you can do, as well as enjoying its great Mediterranean climate and its magnificent beaches, this municipality has beautiful natural landscapes and romantic spots to enjoy with your loved one, a destination that you can choose for a weekend escape.
Walking around Torremolinos
The first thing you can do is discover all the points of tourist interest in Torremolinos, such as the San Miguel street, the municipality’s main street that leads down to the beach and where we’ll find all kinds of shops, from shoe shops to jewellers, currency exchange offices, souvenirs and if we walk down the street to the southern extreme, we’ll see the famous Tower of the Mills from where they used to guard the coasts in the past and warn with time ahead when there were pirate or moorish invaders approaching.
San Miguel street not only offers shops, but also ice cream parlours or places to sit down for a drink and chill; this street has many arteries to get lost wandering around.
Another walk worth doing is along the seafront promenade, specially at dusk to not feel the heat as much and while your at it, you can pick one of the restaurants to have dinner. You’ll find a wide variety of options, from international cuisine to the typical fried fish, salads, etc...a dinner for all tastes. We can even play a game of mini golf (in the Playamar or Pez Espada area right at the other end).
If we choose to go for a stroll during the day or in the evening, we can visit the different shops that open along the Carihuela seafront or have a bite to eat in one of its ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars) where the recommended dishes are, of course, the fried fish, the squid, the grilled gilthead bream, the sardines on the spit, etc..
Attractions for the whole family or with friends
If you come with family or with friends, in Torremolinos you’ll enjoy attractions such as the Torremolinos water park, that has a wide variety of water rides for both the kids and for adults: a wave pool, a giant slide, a playground, etc..
You can visit the Torremolinos crocodile park, situated near Aqualand; In this park they offer exhibitions and you’ll even be able to hold a baby crocodile and have your picture taken for free. This park is also home to the biggest crocodile in Europe...definitely a recommended place to visit.
If you like water sports, you can hire equipment to go out kite surfing or windsurfing. On the beach you can do a lot more than sunbathe, like hiring a pedalo or going out to sea on a giant sausage pulled along by a speedboat.
Shopping in Torremolinos
Every Thursday morning there’s a street market in Torremolinos where they sell all kinds of products, from clothes to fruit and plants. Both the street market on Thursdays and the car boot sale on Sundays take place in the Torremolinos fairground, near the sports centre.
Another option is a trip by car or train to Plaza Mayor that has a cinema, bars, restaurants and shops where you’ll easily lose track of time.
