If you’re looking for the most enjoyable way to spend time at sea, your best option is to book this boat tour, as Torremolinos doesn’t have its own port.

Where to Book Torremolinos Boat Trips

Let’s skip to the main point:

Torremolinos has no marina or harbour, so you won’t find any boat trip options directly from Torremolinos.

That is a little surprising, perhaps as Torremolinos used to be an old fishing village.

The closest marina with boat trip options is that in Benalmadena.

Puerto Benalmadena (the marina) is a walk away from most places in Torremolinos as it shares borders with the city, or you can take a short taxi ride.

So that I don’t have to leave you without options, in this article, I included boat trips both from Benalmadena and also Malaga Port.

This will give you plenty of alternatives to choose from, depending on if you want a place nearby or are happy to jump on a short train ride to Malaga.

Let’s dive in! (pun intended)

Best Boat Trips Near Torremolinos

As I mentioned, the best boat trip options near Torremolinos are in Benalmadena Marina or the Port of Malaga.

Benalmadena Marina can be reached on foot or short taxi journey, while Malaga is on the C-1 local commuter line. You will find the main train station in the center of Torremolinos, and the journey to Malaga will take only about 20 minutes.
