Where is Torremolinos in Spain?

Torremolinos is a Medditerannean resort town in Southern Spain, on Costa del Sol.

Torremolinos is located in the autonomous Spanish community of Andalusia and belongs to the province of Malaga. It is located halfway between Benalmadena and Malaga.

Torremolinos enjoys a location on the western shores of the Bay of Malaga and 13 km (8 miles) from the Sierra de Mijas mountain range. It is well connected to the other destinations on Costa del Sol thanks to the A-7 highway, the C-1 Cercanias suburban line running between Fuengirola and Malaga Centro and Avanza bus connections.

The city is divided into two sections – the older part of town built up in the hills, and the coastal areas which mostly consist of hotels, restaurants and small shops.

Just like the other cities on the coast, Torremolinos is a long 8 kilometres (5.0 miles) stretch of sandy beaches which is lined by a coastal promenade with cycle and skating lanes alongside it.
