Charm in Torremolinos holiday lettings

Set on the Costa Del Sol and boasting seemingly endless sandy beaches, Torremolinos is a lively and popular resort with lots of family fun. Originally a fishing village, the Old Town is still full of Andalusian charm, with mosaic-clad buildings and shops selling local crafts, as well as an old-fashioned promenade full of tapas restaurants. Choose a Torremolinos holiday rental, such as a seafront apartment, and you can explore the historic churches and cultural sites or enjoy the year-round sunshine from a sun lounger on the beach.

Things to do

Attractions near Torremolinos holiday lettings

Cool off on hot days by booking tickets for Aqua Land. There are plenty of thrilling rides, with colourful waterslides, a wave pool and a 90-degree slide that's a sheer drop into the pool. However, if you prefer something more sedate, there's a bubble pool with warm waters, an area for younger kids with shallower slides and gentler rides where you can float and relax on a giant rubber ring. With a jungle theme, there are plenty of palm trees for shade and large model animals around the park which make for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.


What to do near Torremolinos holiday homes

When it comes to beaches, visitors to Torremolinos are spoilt for choice. There's the lively and colourful Hawaii Playa, which can be spotted by the flags of the world set along the promenade. With golden sands and clear seas, it's popular with all ages, and there are lots of bars and restaurants just steps away. Many popular Torremolinos holiday rentals are close to Playa Los Alamos, which is often busy, but has a wide stretch of sand so it's never too crowded. There's a long promenade with ice cream stalls and souvenir shops, and you can either grab a spot under a palm tree or rent a sunbed for a few Euros.


Climate during your stay in Torremolinos holiday homes

Torremolinos enjoys 300 sunny days each year, and it's rare to encounter rain. Even in the coldest months of December or January the weather often hits 17 to 19, so you can still explore the town or enjoy walks on the beach, as long as you don't mind the odd shower. July and August are the busiest times to book a Torremolinos holiday rental, and the weather is hot and dry, often reaching the low 30s. If the heat is too intense, visit during May to June or September to October, when it's a few degrees cooler, but still hot enough to sunbathe.
