There are 5 beaches in Torremolinos, Playa de Los Álamos, Playa de Playamar, Playa del Bajondillo, Playa de la Carihuela and Playa de Montemar. I have added tips on all the beaches apart from the first one which is closest to Malaga.

Playa de la Playamar is a lovely beach with golden sands, a palm grove, restaurants and cafés. The ocean is lovely to swim in at Playamar, you can reach the bottom easily just outside the shore and swim just a little bit further for a deeper sea. I stick to the reachable bottom, being a bit afraid of the ocean. There are some beautiful shells to be found in the waves in this area by the palm grove. In the afternoon the anglers put up their fishing gear there, so take care to move a bit further up the beach as they will almost fish on top of you (honestly).

By the Paseo Maritimo there is Hotel Sol Principe and Principito (see my tip on that), Isabel, Don Marco and a couple of other hotels. A lovely area. Last year I watched an outside movie-theater on the beach of Playamar. There are a lot of stores, shops and restaurants in this area, and Avda. de Benyamina with all its big blocks-of-flats which look like pillars.

By Plaza Comunidades Autonómas is "Informacion Turistica", or The Tourist information center, where you can get leaflets and some information on Torremolinos. On the Plaza itself there is the breathtaking homage to Picasso "Mujeres corriendo por la playa" which is the centerpiece of the Paseo Marítimo (see my tip on the statue).

I have added more pictures in a travelogue here as the tips only allow for 5 pictures.

Address: Playa de la Playamar, Torremolinos, Malaga.
Directions: Playa de la Playamar is at the furthest end of Torremolinos, closest to Playa de Los Álamo and Malaga easily reachable by walking along Paseo Maritimo.
