La Carihuela

This historic Torremolinos fishing village is today famous for its delectable seafood and spacious Mediterranean beach, which has ideal swimming conditions.

La Carihuela started out as a fishing village but, with the growth of Torremolinos as a coastal resort, it has become most popular for its huge, sandy beach. Visit to explore the last remnants of the old village or to simply enjoy swimming in the sheltered natural harbor. The area is also getting increasingly famous for its delicious fresh cuisine.

Before hitting the beach, stroll downhill from Torremolinos to see the old buildings of La Carihuela. The town remained a quiet village until the 1970s, when the development of the promenade welcomed tourists to Torremolinos.

Walk along the seafront and find a number of restaurants lining the walkway. La Carihuela’s love of seafood has made it an increasingly celebrated foodie destination. Try out some “pescaíto frito” (fried fish), the local delicacy.

Find a patch of sand on the 1-mile (2-kilometer) stretch of beach. The golden sand runs into shallow, sheltered water, making it a safe and fun place to play in the sea. Lifeguards also patrol the beach with keen eyes, ensuring the security of every sun-seeker and swimmer.

The beach is well equipped with services to suit groups visiting the coastline. Rent a sun bed for a day and work on your tan beneath the year-round hot sun or simply place a towel down wherever you want. Water equipment rentals and children’s play areas ensure that youngsters can have fun all day.

Follow the beach to Benalmadena, which promises even more entertainment. Take sailing lessons, go on a diving excursion or rent a boat to explore the Andalucían coastline. The marina at the south end of the beach also contains the Sea Life Aquarium, where you can meet the creatures of the deep.

Parking is available near La Carihuela but it can be hard to find a spot during the busy season of July and August. Wander to the beach from the town center in Torremolinos, which is about 20 minutes away on foot.
