was originally named
Molinos de la Torre, meaning the "mills of the tower" and is located
7km west of Málaga airport.
was just a simple fishing village until the 1950s and 1960s when it developed into one of the premium tourist destinations on the
Costa del Sol
The extensive coastline and mild climate drew crowds of partygoers who revelled in the nightlife.
All that "fun" gave the city a bad reputation and eventually was responsible for a decline in tourism.
Over the last decade Torremolinos has outgrown its rowdy image and the fun-loving party crowd has been replaced with a decidedly different demographic of older tourists, families and gay travelers. The resort area is now famous for clean, sandy beaches and a variety of hotels and restaurants.
