best place to head is the main pedestrianised street of Calle San Miguel, where shops line up to sell you goods of all kinds.
The town is also awash with colour in the summer, with over a thousand species of trees and flowers being planted in and around the towns
streets, plazas and parks.
The old fishing district of El Bajondillo is found at the end of Calle San Miguel, at the bottom of a steep flight of stairs, here you will find some excellent seafood restaurants, souvenir shops and at the bottom is the beach of El Bajondillo.
The seafront promenade of Torremolinos stretches all the way to Benalmadena Marina and makes for a pleasant evening stroll, where you pass the old fishing village of La Carihuela.
