Travel Tips for Torremolinos


by LoriPori

This well-developed international resort is situated on a 9 km stretch of beach, just west of Malaga (transfer time by taxi from Malaga airport approx. 20 minutes).
A lively base for a fun-filled holiday, TORREMOLINOS offers a wide array of restaurants, cafe's, "tablaos" that feature Flamenco shows and an exciting night life.

An exclusive seaside resort, PUERTO BANUS is THE meeting-point of the jet-set in Marbella. Here you will find the most beautiful and luxurious yachts, the most elegant shops and the best restaurants. We thought of it as the place to see and be seen. Many folks were out on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon just enjoying themselves at the many sidewalk cafe's or just strolling among the beautiful yachts moored in the harbour. Many used their yachts as a week-end getaway place (probably too expensive to actually sail them).

A restaurant owned by Antonio de Banderas.

by Regina1965 about La Posada de Antonio.

La Posada de Antonio is one of several restaurants in the Malaga area owned by the actor Antonio Banderas (from Malaga). The restaurant has a lovely rustic décor.

The food was excellent. The chicken breast and leg was very juicy and succulent and had been grilled on charcoal. The french-fries were "home-made". The coalslaw was a fresh touch, unusual for Spain. Everything was up to par.

Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith also own a restaurant by the same name in Malaga and The Kaleido bar and disco at Puerto Deportivo in Benalmadena and they always visit one of these places while in this area, so you might spot them ;)

Winding our way over the peaks

by Bwana_Brown

We left the A-356 highway at the reservoir to begin our climb up over the mountain range in front of us on the A-402/A-335. This very scenic and not busy highway (at 11 AM on New Year's Day!) initially made its way along a valley wall high above one of the rivers feeding into the reservoir. Signs of human habitation were thin on the ground with quaint old barns and buildings popping up every now and again amid the olive tree groves covering the hillsides.

It was not long before we could see a massive gash in the mountain wall ahead of us (2nd photo) through which the highway would allow us to reach the tiny hamlet of Ventas de Zaffarayus, located on a broad plain on the other side. This was a really scenic part of our drive so we took the time to look back on our zig-zag route (3rd photo) leading up to the pass.

Get the Lift (Ascensor) to the old town

by suvanki

Day 2, and after a leisurely breakfast at Orlando, 7 VTers met up in the Reception of Bajondillo Apartments, and set off in the direction of the old town, where we were looking forward to lunch at a Tapas Bar, that had been recommended by one of the receptionists.

We could have walked all of the way uphill, but this Lift wasn't far from our apartment,(it's on Plaza de los Tajillos), and it would take us straight to Plaza del Panoramo, and the nearby Matahambre Taberna for tapas.

It costs just 50 cents for a one way trip - A man appeared and issued us with a yellow ticket, before we boarded the lift.
I understand this operates from 09.00 - 21.00 hours, but I'm not sure if there are different opening times winter/summer. Also I've read of children not being charged-I'm not sure if this is the rule, or at the 'conductors' discretion.

The metal cage in pic 2 isn't the lift, but a stair case, though again, I'm not sure if this is in use.

The lift is enclosed, and takes a few seconds to reach the destination. There is room for anyone in a wheelchair or with a pram etc.

Pl. de Panorama is off Calle de las Mercedes, (at the Calle San Miguel end of this road)

From the beach, it may be a bit difficult to find Plaza de los Tajillos and the lift entrance, although it is signposted. I think this is the way:-

From Bajondillo Apartments exit through the car park (to the Left side of the Apartments if viewing from the sea) onto C/ del Bajondillo , turn Left, walk forward for a few metres and look for the green garage and signs on the right side. Ascend the few steps to Plaza de los Tajillos and the lift.
