Head to the Beach
For those in search of some winter sun, a trip to Torremolinos could be just the ticket. A typical Mediterranean climate means that this resort experiences long, hot and dry summers followed by mild winters – perfect for a much-needed dose of vitamin D and relief from rainy British weather. Its beaches are the main attraction and with six main sandy strips, you’ll find somewhere to settle yourself and enjoy the sunshine. Enjoy the sedate beauty of Los Alamos beach with its pleasant breeze and tropical palm trees or for those feeling more energetic, head to Playamar during your holidays in Torremolinos to indulge in a myriad of water sports – everything from jet-skiing to surfing.
Torremolinos isn’t all about the beach though. For those seeking an adrenaline fix, head for Aqualand, the largest waterpark in the whole of Andalucia. A great place to take the little ones to expend their energy, you’ll make plenty of memories as they zoom down slides and embark on thrill-inducing rides. Travel inland to the beautiful Sierra Mountains and explore the charm of the traditional town of Mijas with its white-washed buildings or take a jaunt along the coast to the cosmopolitan resort of Marbella to indulge in its excellent shopping opportunities. If you’ve got the little ones with you, you’ll be pleased to find that Torremolinos holidays have a wealth of family attractions to enjoy. The Sea Life Aquarium is a great place to visit if you fancy relief from the sunshine, with crabs and starfish as well as rays and sharks.
