Torremolinos is the popular Mediterranean resort town and favourite vacation destination for holidaymakers on southern Spain's Costa del Sol. Torremolinos has an enviable reputation for beautiful weather and dry summers enjoyed along its famous eight-kilometre sandy beach coastline.
The name Torremolinos originates from Moorish times and means “Tower of the Mills” from the words Torre (Tower) and Molino (Mill). At one time during Moorish history water mills populated the undeveloped land in Torremolinos. Today, only one mill survives (called “Molino de Inca”) with partial remains of the last tower forming part of an established and operating restaurant.
The 1950s saw the introduction of packaged tours to the Costa del Sol with droves of tourists visiting southern Spain for the first-time. Prior to the tourism boom, Torremolinos was a fishing village with a small population of 785. Economic activity at the time was predominately generated from the fishing industry. During the tourism boom, land for sale in Torremolinos Málaga was snapped-up by savvy developers keen to construct hotels and resorts. Torremolinos was the first resort developed, and still one of the most popular resorts today.
A lot has changed since the 1950s. While fishing is still an important part of everyday activity in Torremolinos, tourism is the main source of revenue for the town. Today the population is over 70,000, rising to 250,000 during the peak summer season when visitors converge upon the holiday apartments in Torremolinos for their annual holidays.
