Staying in the area La Carihuela it is the ideal place – an old seafaring neighbourhood west of the town. A good place to start a walk along the seaside can be reached by heading to plaza del Remo.
If you walk west, you’ll arrive at Puerto Marina in Benalmadena with its many bars and restaurants. If you choose the eastern route, you’ll enjoy numerous shops and restaurants in La Carihuela. You can admire la Punta or el Morro de Torremolinos, the natural monument which splits the Paseo Marítimo in two You can enjoy the other beaches until arriving at the end of Los Álamos. A pleasant and relaxing experience next to the sea.
