Tradition and gastronomy come together in its more than 2 kilometers of coastline, where after spending a good morning enjoying the sun on the beach, you can take a break to enjoy a good “espeto” sardine skewer or a tasty portion of fried fish in one of the many beach bars that you will find there. And it is that La Carihuela is the most maritime neighborhood of Torremolinos, the one that keeps the essence of our city in its streets.
Don’t be surprised if someone tells you to go to Playa del Saltillo or Montemar. Both are areas of La Carihuela beach. The Saltillo beach or Solymar beach, is the westernmost, on the border with Benalmádena. The Montemar beach is the one you will find if you place your towel in front of the Hotel Pez Espada
