Torremolinos - once an insignificant fishing village - is nowadays a well-known coastal resort between Malaga City and Fuengirola which is especially famous for its nightlife and its magnificent beaches. Torremolinos occupies a place of undisputed leadership in the Spanish tourism sector. In fact, today the municipality encompasses 40 percent of the total hotel infrastructure available on the Costa del Sol.
That is why the town offers a wide range of hotels and leisure possibilities for every taste and pocket, including bars, restaurants and discotheques with international ambience and gastronomy. The influx of foreigners and tourists in general during the '60s and '70s created a liberal and permissive atmosphere that still distinguishes the city from other towns in the Costa del Sol. Torremolinos is one of the most multicultural cities of Andalusia. Here live people from up to 130 different nationalities throughout the year.
Over recent years the city has greatly improved its communications and, above all, its entertainment services with an extensive infrastructure for sport and culture, and therefore goes much beyond the traditional offer of sun and beach.
