Travel Tips for Torremolinos

Police on wheels!

by Regina1965

The police men on the beach in Torremolinos, the beach-police, are dressed in white and are on wheels! It is lovely knowing of them guarding people at the beach and good to know that you can turn to them for guidance and information. There are thieves on the beach like everywhere where there is a crowd so the presence of the beach-police on wheels is more than welcome. And they are like always visible being able to travel quickly from one end of the beach to the other on their wheels.

Buses

by keeweechic

If walking is not your thing for whatever reason, there are buses which will take you around both Torremolinos and neighbouring areas including Malaga, Ronda, Marbella, Estepona as well as far as Granada and Tarifa. The main bus station is at Calle Hoyo and the Portillo Bus Company travels just about everywhere on the Costa del Sol.

CAFETERIA HELADERIA

by LoriPori about YAUCO

The thing we love most about Torremolinos is its wonderful promenade that runs all along the beach and one of our favourite things to do is walk along the promenada. There are many little places to stop and have a coffee and of course people watch. One of those cute little places was YAUCO. They tempted us with a big poster that offered a coffee, orange juice and croissant for 3 Euros. Of course we tried it and were very satisfied. It was fun to sit there at a table right next to the promenade and watch people go by. We even saw some of our fellow residents from Bajondillo pass by and say Hello. The coffee was excellent - the orange juice fresh squeezed and the croissant so fresh.

Torre de Pimentel - Pimentel Tower - Torre Vigia

by suvanki

This 12 metre high, adobe tower is one of the few landmarks in Torremolinos, and dates back to the time when Spain was under the rule of The Moors. It also inspired the name of this town

The Moors had a particular affinity with water. They recognised the potential for using the water that flowed in a stream to the coast from Los Manantiales. Mills were constructed along its banks.

Torre de Pimental was constructed in the early14th Century (by Nasrid rulers from Granada) as a Watch Tower, to help the defence of the area against attack from the sea. North African pirates tried their chances a few times upto the 18th Century. Admiral George Rooke led an Anglo-Dutch attack here during the War of Spanish Succession, which almost destroyed the town. In the 15th century it was used as a mill.

The first resident of Torremolinos whose name appears in any official document was Alonso Martín, who was contracted as a tower guard, responsible for warning of invasions from the sea.

During the period that it was used as a mill, it was named Torre de los Molinos.
Tower (Torre) of the Mills (Molinos)!!

Eventually the water supply dwindled, and the mills closed. During the early 20th Century, the town was rebuilt, along with the mills. By the 1920's they once again fell into a decline.

The tower was later renamed to honour Don Rodrigo de Pimentel, who donated 2000 horses and nearly 5,000 soldiers to help the Catholic Kings in their conquest of Malaga and Granada.

It looked as if this Tower was just abandoned, but I've read that it is open daily and Entrance is Free! The tower has two floors, and from the top you can enjoy panoramic views.

Aqualand - water park.

by Regina1965

Aqualand is the biggest water park in Costa del Sol and very popular with the kids. We meant to go there in August when the water would be warm, but then we got the pig-flu and couldn't make it. But I walked by it many times and it was crowded in August, not so much though during other months. But in August the Spanish go there as this is their holiday month (the beaches are crowded as well). Bear that in mind while visting and have a look at my photos, it is way too crowded. My friend came for a visit in June with her family and they went to Aqualand and liked it very much.

The prices are a bit steep 21,50 euros for adults and 15,50 euros for kids, but there are some discounts to be had if you bring a discount-advertisement, which you can find at the hotels and at the bus-station.
