Benalmadena or Torremolinos : what travelers say Benalmadena (coast) is more of a beach resort with an attractive marina and restaurants, shops, and bars located around it. Travelers generally find the beaches better in Torremolinos whereas Benalmadena has better nightlife.
Every Thursday morning there’s a street market in Torremolinos where they sell all kinds of products, from clothes to fruit and plants. Both the street market on Thursdays and the car boot sale on Sundays take place in the Torremolinos fairground, near the sports centre.
If possible, stay off the beaches late at night . The beaches are not well lit. This is also when muggers and robbers may show up. Don’t be a victim of dangerous crime and stay safe .
Nearly 4 kilometers car-free walk . At the end, you can walk a bit further to Benalmadena and take a bus back to Torremolinos if the walk is too long.
Torremolinos is a strategically ideal town to spend our vacations all year round, its proximity to other tourist destinations like Benalmadena, Fuengirola or Malaga make Torremolinos the perfect place to stay.
Old Town is lovely, old buildings, cafes, shops and much more, just off the beach so it is not as busy as the main centre of the town .

The taxis between Malaga airport and Torremolinos are metered, and therefore the price may vary. However, the approximate cost of the journey should be around 20€ on the standard meter fare. Holy Days or Festival Days may also affect the price , and are charged at the night-time rate.
Torremolinos is very safe . I love to walk along the very long El Bajondillo Beach, where there are about 40 beachside restaurants.
