This area of Torremolinos is very quaint. There is a lovely street that runs behind the promenade with numerous shops, bars and restaurants. The promenade is a real delight to walk down and there are several bars and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by.
Had a 10 night break at Roc Lago Rojo hotel. Our third visit at this location. Hotels yards from the sea front and many bars and restaurants. Our weather was absolutely superb, blue sky's, very warm, hot in the sun for the whole ten days (18-28 Dec) Carihuela is in between Torremolinos and Benalmadena. No need to have a 4...
This area is very clean, lots of traditional restaurants and lots of snack places to eat. The area has had a lot of work done and multimillion refurbishments to hotels restaurants all along this coastline. The carihuela has managed to keep a lot of it's very interesting character and we love it.
Excellent area between Torremolinos and Benalmadena. More laid back than either with quieter beach and nice old part with plenty of good cafes and restaurants. Good connections on the main bus routes although it's a bit of a walk to the train.
Nearly 4 kilometers car-free walk. Lot's of possibilities to rest, have a tapa or drink. At the end, you can walk a bit further to Benalmadena and take a bus back to Torremolinos if the walk is too long.
The hotel recommend we visit Carihuela district, where you can see the original part of Torremolinos. There are narrow streets and there was a local fishing district. In the streets and in the heat of summer pleasant shade. In congestive stores are getting interesting souvenirs, but also luxury products. Make sure you do not miss CARIHUELA.
