Torremolinos is a tourist town on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. It appeals to domestic tourists, Northern Europeans, families and LGBT people (and probably LGBT families, too). It is approximately 12 km south of Malaga between Malaga Bay and the Mijas Mountains.
Torremolinos was a fishing village back in the 1920s, but has been rapidly overtaken by tourism. Its nominal population is around 43,000 but this can rise to 250,000 during the tourist season.
