  1. Torremolinos

    Torremolinos (Spanish pronunciation: [toremoˈlinos]) is a municipality in Andalusia, southern Spain, west of Málaga. A poor fishing village before the growth in tourism began in the late 1950s, Torremolinos was the first of the Costa del Sol resorts to be developed and is still the most popular in the region. On the western shore of the Bay of Málaga and in front of the Sierra de Mijas 13 km from Málaga, it is served by the A-7 motorway, which bypasses the city to the north, the Cercanías commuter train and Avanzabus. In 2013, it had 69,389 inhabitants, making it the sixth largest city in the province. The township has an area of 20 km2 and a population density of 3153.85 inhabitants/km2, which is multiplied during the summer months. It is particularly popular with British, Irish and Scandinavian tourists and has a large British expatriate population. Areas of the town are spotted with older high-rise residential buildings and hotels but height limits on new developments and a significant number of original old town properties have kept the town centre much more open than other popular resorts such as Benidorm and Fuengirola. As the name Coast of the Sun implies, Torremolinos enjoys one of the best climates in Europe. It has long dry summers with relatively low humidity, and mild winters with occasional, though heavy, rainfall. The town benefits in the summer from cool sea breezes predominately coming from Africa although this does mean a fair amount of Sahara dust. Temperatures normally hover around 30 °C in the summer and the upper teens in the winter. Torremolinos, like San Francisco, sometimes experiences a sea fog that goes as quickly as it appears. The beach which extends for nearly 8 kilometres, has cycle and skating lanes alongside the fully illuminated promenade and features many chiringuitos and beach bars. The eastern end of the beach, known as Los Alamos, has live dance music events throughout the summer. The easternmost parts of the beach have kite surfing and windsurfing except under the flight path of the airport. There are two separate beach lifts, a wheelchair accessible footpath and steps from the town centre to the beach. Though there are many parking spaces on the beach road, it is almost impossible to park in the summer months. The town centre does have many underground car parks however. In addition to its tourism sector, Torremolinos is known locally for its vibrant and liberal nightlife, particularly its numerous bars and clubs catering to the LGBT community. Torremolinos co-hosted World Pride in 2017 in conjunction with Madrid and holds its own Pride in June, now the third largest in Spain. In addition Torremolinos hosts MadBear which caters to bears, Delice Dream, Wonder Beach and many others LGTB festivals during the summer.
