Dining & Nightlife
Cuisine in Torremolinos is chiefly seafood, with its most emblematic dish being "pescaíto" frito (fried fish). Fresh fish bars can be found in the main tourist and shopping area. The Cuesta del Tajo, at the end of San Miguel, leads down a steep flight of steps through the old fishing district of El Bajondillo. This is a popular, picturesque area lined with restaurants and market-style kiosks, selling souvenirs. The La Carihuela area to the west is known for its excellent seafood restaurants and chiringuitos (beach bars).
There is an unparalleled variety of entertainment, activities and nightlife available in Torremolinos. At the height of summer, the resort has a great appeal for the younger set, with a reputation for its hectic nightlife.
Packed with tantalising shops, thronging with people of every nationality and located right at the heart of the town is the pedestrian only Calle San Miguel, the main artery of the town. This smartly paved pedestrian street is lined with boutiques and shops with a great variety of goods on offer, attracting a constant flow of people.
