    VARIOUS SHOPS: CALLE SAN MIGUEL

    by LoriPori Written Feb 15, 2006

    Calle San Miguel
    4 more images

    Torremolinos centre itself offers shops selling everything imaginable with the most famous street being CALLE SAN MIGUEL. This runs from the main street down the hill towards the sea. It is lined with shops and bars and the lower end, becomes a narrow walkway with hundreds of steps to take you down the steep hillside to the beach at the bottom. You do need to be fairly fit to walk up this street and most people walk down and find an alternative way up. There is a lift availabe for those who are unable to make the climb.
    I walked up two or three times a week. I do take my time and check out all the little shops on the way up.

    Mercadona Supermercado

    Just a ten minute walk from our apartment, MERCADONA SUPERMERCADO has everything you need and at good prices. Actually the prices didn't go up too much from our visit two years ago.
    Available: Baked goods, dairy products, canned goods, snacks, beverages (water, soda, beer, wine and liquor), very good fruit and vegetable section with most sold prepackaged, frozen foods, excellent selection of fresh fish, prepackaged meats, domestic and laundry products, paper products, etc.
    I usually went every couple of days, so as not to have to carry too much.
    Open 9:15 a.m. to 9:15 p.m.

    What to pay: I found the prices comparable to what I pay here in Canada

    ROMERO SANCHEZ: TORREMOLINOS SOUVENIRS ( REGALOS )

    by LoriPori Updated Feb 23, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    San Miguel Shopping Area

    I just loved shopping and snooping on Calle San Miguel. So much variety . As I was looking for some souvenirs ( regalos ) to bring home to Canada, I stopped in this nice little shop ROMERO SANCHEZ which had a nice stock of souvenirs and reasonably priced too. I picked up a few small 'Olive' dishes. They were so cute. They were terra cotta and had a little pot to put the olive pits in and an even smaller pot to put toothpicks in. The only thing is I should have thought of how heavy they would be in my carry-on. Oh well, I just had Hansi carry it. HeHe!

    Mercadona supermarket.: Supermarket - cheaper food - big selection.

    by Regina1965 Updated Oct 12, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mercadona off Avda de Benyamina.
    4 more images

    Mercadona supermarket is where I do most of my shopping while in Torremolinos. It has got a wide selection of food and drink at a reasonable price. One of the supermarkets is off Avda de Benyamina, in the vicinity of Playa de Playamar and Hotel Principito Sol in between the big blocks of flats, looking like pillars. I would love to live in one of these blocks of flats one day :D

    There are three other Mercadona supermarkets up in the city center, one right next to Calle San Miguel, just turn right as you come to the end of CSM and on your right hand side is Centro Entreplazas with a big Mercadona supermarket in the basement. The third one is a little further up in the city center. The fourth one is harder to find as it is hidden away up in the residential area, opposite the police station and City Hall.

    Opening hours are Monday-Saturday from 9:15-21:15 and they don't close for siesta. Sundays is closed though.

    What to buy: Food and drink and everything sold at supermarkets - at a much better price than in the stores by the beach or at the hotel.

    What to pay: I would say that this is the cheapest supermarket chain in Torremolinos.

    Shopping street.: Shopping in Calle Bulto in La Carihuela area.

    by Regina1965 Updated Oct 21, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the beginning of La Carihuela.
    4 more images

    Calle Bulto is a shopping street parallel to the promenade at Playa de la Carihuela. You can either enter the street at the beginning of La Carihuela or at the very end where the beaches of La Carihuela and Montemar meet by the palm-grove and the statue of the fisherman standing on his wooden boat on Plaza del Remo.

    It was raining when I took the camera with me and took the pictures, but usually this street is very lively and worth a visit when strolling on the promenade.

    What to buy: There are all kinds of stores and restaurants in Calle Bulto, be it Swarovsky crystal you are looking for, or toys or fabulous sweaters, jerseys or cardigans. My favourite shop there is the one with the sweaters, they are expensive but so beautiful, I have already bought 2 there. Some of the stores lead straight into the promenade, open in both ends.

    There are also a lot of restaurants and cafés in Calle Bulto and the streets that adjoin Calle Bulto.

    BAZAR CEYCE: SPANISH SOUVENIRS

    Calle San Miguel

    I love to snoop in souvenir shops in Torremolinos. CEYCE was a great little shop as I was looking for gifts to bring back home and I needed some post-cards for my scrapbook. They were selling here for the very reasonable price of .15 Eurocents, which is pretty good. They also had the usual pottery plates and mugs, colourful Spanish fans, Torremolinos T-shirts for children, etc. etc.

    Super Sol.: A very good selection of food.

    Super Sol.
    1 more image

    There are a couple of Super Sol supermarkets in Torremolinos, but this one is the biggest of them all with a very good selection of food and beverages. The fruit and vegetable selection is excellent and much better than at Mercadona. So when staying in Torremolinos I buy everything I can in Mercadona (because of the price) and the rest in Super Sol.

    This supermarkets is at the very end of Torremolinos by the motor-way very close to the Palacio Congreso.

    What to buy: Various types of food, toiletry, kitchen equipment and barbeque equipment, CDs and DVDs, underwear and much much more.

    What to pay: A little more than in Mercadona.

    Too Many to Name: Everything You Never Really Wanted!

    by Geoff_Wright Written Mar 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calle San Miguel

    The Calle San Miguel is the street where you will find almost everything that you never really wanted! It's crammed full of many nice shops, selling gifts, shoes, clothes jewelery and so on.

    What to buy: If you fancy something in the jewelery line, do shop around before you decide. We found that almost all the shops will offer you a reasonable discount, but there is a little pressure into buying 'there and then'. It's always best to look elsewhere. Jaymes wanted a gold neclace, which was going to cost 75 Euros. He almost bought it, but decided th 'sleep on it'. In the end, he decided not to buy one at all. Sensible boy, haha.

    What to pay: Ask about discounts before you purchase

    Various: Postcards for your VT Friends

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calle Cuesta del Tajo

    Don't go to the first shop you see and buy all your post cards! We found that shops at the beach sold exactly the same views as shops in the town, but at twice the price. So if, like us, you wanted 20 or so cards, the difference was quite considerable.

    the same applies to postage stamps. Buy them at the Post Office at the normal rate, or at the various gift shops for about 50% more!!

    What to pay: Anything from 15 to 35 Cents

    Post Office: Where to buy your Stamps

    by Geoff_Wright Updated Mar 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Post Office

    The Main Post Office is to be found in the Avendo Palma de Mallorca, a couple of hundred yards to the west of the main square.

    What to buy: Buy your postage stamps here (what else??). the friendly staff may not speak English, so we split our cards into two bundles, one for Europe, and one for the Rest of the World, noting how many of each stamps we would want. We wrote on a piece of paper the total numbers required, allowing for some spare stamps for use in out of the way locations. The staff will affix the stamps, and keep the cards for their onward journey (one hopes!!).

    What to pay: (As at March 2003) Stamps for Europe are 51 Cents, and for the Rest of the World they are 76 Cents.
    Local shops may charge 80 Cents for a 51 Cent stamp (but this may have a different design)

    Flea Market in Arroyo de la Miel

    Friday February 4, 2011
    My friend Fina and I took the train to ARROYO DE LA MIEL (Euros 2,00 return) for the Friday Flea Market. It was huge. Everything from clothing to leather goods, flowers, fruits and vegetables.
    As it was a beautiful, sunny day, it was very busy there. Fina and I enjoyed walking around the market and mostly snooping. I did buy Hans a nice, new leather hip pack for 5,00 Euros (which I haggled down from 7 Euros). I also bought some cute white socks which was 1,50 Euros for a three-pack. I did buy some delicious and HUGE oranges, which were 1,00 Euro for a Kilo. They were absolutely juicy.

    What to buy: There was lots to choose from - leather goods, clothing for adults and children, blankets, table cloths, souvenirs, pottery, candy and nuts, fruits and vegetables, flowers, etc.

    What to pay: Don't be afraid to haggle and don't always accept the first price. Have in mind what you want to pay and stick to it.

    DE HOLLANDSE WINKEL: DUTCH GROCERIES

    De Hollandse Winkel
    1 more image

    I discovered a Dutch grocery store DE HOLLANDSE WINKEL or La Tienda Holandesa purely by accident. I was just wandering around the shops in Carihuela and found it in a side street. They offered many Dutch goodies like chocolate hagelslaag, pinda kaas, Dutch cookies, cheeses and vleeswaren. I bought Hans a box of chocolate hagelslaag (2,35 Euros) and rolls of Kings peppermints (,69 Eurocents each ). They were a little pricey as compared to buying them in Holland but they are after all imported.

    What can I say - isn´t this what many people do when living abroad and feeling home-sick - or just longing for the feel of home?

    I didn´t mean to add a tip on IKEA per se, everybody knows what IKEA is, this is just to point out what to do when homesick in Torremolinos.
