The Costa del Sol is a region in the south of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, comprising the coastal towns and communities along the coastline of the Province of Málaga. It is no surprise that the southern part of Spain is so popular, as the literal translation of the coast´s name is ¨Coast of the Sun¨. With more than 325 sunny days per year, the Costa del Sol is a great destination all year round, but particularly in the first three to four months that Canadians are looking to get out of the wet, cold and snow.
Playa de la Carihuela is the largest beach of Torremolinos and definitely one of the most popular ones. Swimming conditions are ideal as the water is clear and shallow. The length of the beach is approximately 2,100 metres and the width is 40 metres. The fabulous Paseo Maritimo Promenade running along the beach is a great spot for a drink or to grab a bite to eat but is also used for cycling or running.
Sunbeds, parasols, and water sports equipment are available for rent and there are public toilets, showers, play areas and disabled access. Access to the beach is very easy from the centre of Torremolinos. This walkway is an extension of the famous Benalmádena Walkway with its tile and marble walkways that stretches 7 km by little shops and delightful restaurants.
